Hosted Event with the Cheese Biscuit Queen Mary Greene at Half-Mile Farm

Food & Drink
Date: Friday, January 21, 2022 12:00 AM - Sunday, January 23, 2022 12:00 AM

Venue: Half-Mile Farm

Mary Greene will help us ring in the New Year with a cheese biscuit demo and fireside chat on Saturday, and a hosted Social Hour on Friday and Saturday evenings including complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Breakfast each day will feature specialties from Mary's delicious array of southern recipes and sweet remembrances. 


Her cookbook, “The Cheese Biscuit Queen Tells All,” published by the University of South Carolina Press in 2021, is filled with recipes passed down from her family's heritage, as well as other selections surrounded in Southern history.


She currently serves as house staff to her extremely spoiled cat Queenie, who chose Mary by following the smell of barbeque to her kitchen door. She divides her time between Beaufort, South Carolina and the state capital Columbia.


Mary now also teaches baking skills to seventeen- to twenty-five-year-old homeless and at-risk youth every week at the Mental Illness Recovery Center, Inc. (MIRCI) Youth Drop- In Center in Columbia, South Carolina. One of her pupils told her one day that she was like a “culinary Mary Poppins,” in that she always pops in to bake with them and brings along a large bag from which she pulls all the ingredients and tools necessary to make whatever they are creating that week. Along with teaching them baking skills, she also helps them learn that sometimes the most important thing you can do for someone is to show up when you say you will and to give them your undivided attention. 


Weekend Events:

Social Hour Friday and Saturday evenings from 5-6 pm with craft beverages available from the J. Henry Farmhouse Tavern, along with complimentary hors d’oeuvres and live music.
