Gift Shop & Creamery

Beulah Winfrey Gift Shop, located in The Keeter Center, features an array of handcrafted, student-made products such as: stained glass decorations and gifts, homemade fruitcake and jellies, pottery, handwoven baskets, textiles, milled grains, and The Keeter Center's famous Pear Honey Dressing.

Agriculture students milk 60 Holstein, Jersey, and Guernsey cows at the campus dairy. Once the milk is collected, students pasteurize, bottle, and deliver it to The Keeter Center, where another group of hard-working students turn the farm-fresh cream into Nettie Marie’s Homemade Ice Cream.

Edwards Mill

Edwards Mill & General Store

Edwards Mill, built with funds provided by the late Mr. and Mrs. Hubert C. Edwards, is powered by a twelve-foot water wheel turned by runoff water from nearby Lake Honor. Student workers grind whole-grain meal and flour, available for purchase inside the building and online. Upstairs is a weaving studio, where students handweave baskets and design and produce rugs, shawls, place mats, and other items on traditional looms. Edwards Mill is open from 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Saturday.
