Even in the mill's heyday, the Peirce family ran a diversified farm. They grew vegetables, tended bees, raised livestock for meat and dairy and cultivated fields of wheat, corn, rye, and oats. On this hillside they maintained a substantial orchard. Some of these products were consumed by the family, their tenants, and their enslaved workers. Others were sold at market.Captions:This detail from an 1861 map shows the mill, several other buildings, and the rows of trees on the hillside that made up the Peirce family orchard.
