Because the Bremo Plantations are so well-preserved, we still have a lot of the buildings related to food production and processing at Bremo. We still have workings of the mills there and the mill pond and traces. We still have one kitchen and the pit for one ice house. My father has smoked hams in the original smoke house. In terms of crops, we don’t really have much except corn is still farmed there. Originally, there would have been sheep and horses – the original owner bred horses – but not really much beyond the subsistence needs – cow, chickens – of a working plantation in terms of animals.
The Slaves Have Names is available in paperback and ebook through Amazon, and if someone would like a signed copy – or would like to see images of some of the places that the enslaved community at Bremo lived and worked – they can visit my webpage for the book.
