At Golden Acres Ranch, you’ll find goats, sheep, even bees, but what really gets Southerners’ hearts going pitter-pat is the mayhaws.
When the Goldens bought their property in Monticello, they had no idea it contained a mayhaw pond. It didn’t take long, though, until folks around town pointed it out, drawn in by the promise of that ruby-gold glow that you only see in real mayhaw jelly.
The Goldens began harvesting their crop, and they host a Mayhaw Festival each year. In this video, Bobbi shares some mayhaw lore, including
-the origin of the name mayhaw
-how they’re harvested and used
-how to grow them as a landscape plant
-mayhaw myths…and plenty more.
