Joyful Tidings from the Old Mill
The spirit of Christmas shines as we busy ourselves assembling unique holiday gifts from our Great Smoky Mountain home. Here you’ll find our best food and pottery offerings to share with those you love, handcrafted and packaged with the heart of the season.
In the early 1800’s, our water-powered gristmill served as a marketplace gathering spot for settlers to buy and trade grain, home goods, and home-crafted Appalachian Mountain crafts in anticipation of the holidays. Today, at the Old Mill Square, that festive tradition still thrives with the same handmade quality of grains, food, and artisan pottery.
Our grains are like no other: stone-ground, naturally, with the power of nature. Signature soups are cold weather staples for serving family and friends, as are special seasonal breads from the Old Mill Bakery and traditional holiday sweets -- fudge, brittle, divinity, and more -- made right here in the Candy Kitchen by our elves.
Browse our website for new gifts, holiday recipes, and unique lodging. And give the gift of homemade goodness from all of us at the Old Mill!
