On this week’s podcast, we take a trip to the Mill Creek in rural Leacock Township, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania., where the Zook family just pulled an old millstone out of the creek. But it wasn’t just any old millstone — it was a hempstone.
On this episode, we find out what a hempstone is, why it was in the creek, and how the Zooks managed to get it out of the creekbed where it’s sat undisturbed for nearly 2 centuries.
Plus, hemp historian Les Stark shares his expert perspective on the stone, how much it weighs and why he thinks it’s older than some other hemp stones he’s found.
