I accompanied Eomani (Vivi’s Mom) to the local Korean traditional mill, and couldn’t resist capturing some of the action with my trusty cameraphone.
밭빵 떡 방앗간 I visited this local mill to process korean grains chile and sesame seed.
Eoma needed to process some homegrown sesame seeds into oil, but there were several people already in line when we arrived. Some were grinding the red chile pods into flakes and powder. Others were making puffed rice (similar to rice crispies cereal). It’s a busy time of year for food processing. All of the women in line were older grandmother-aged. No doubt the younger members of the family benefit from these products, but do they participate in the creation? Who is going to grow all this food in the future?
This homepage is part of a plan to create more food growers. We are developing educational programs and hiring teachers that can expose the vibrant Korean farming lifestyle to others. Nomatter who you are, I hope you find the content inspiring
