Join us for our fifth annual Chickin Pickin’!

That’s good eatin’! Pitmaster Jim Kellenberger with his masterpiece at our first Chickin Pickin’.

Spring has sprung, and that means it’s time for Yates Mill’s friends and barbecue fans to get together for our annual Chickin Pickin’.

This year’s barbecue will be held Saturday, April 2, from 3 pm to 5 pm. We’ll be at the park again – specific location to be decided depending on the weather.

Tickets for this delicious fundraiser are $25 (of which $20 can be deducted from your taxes as a charitable donation to Yates Mill Associates). The proceeds will help us build up our savings account to pay for the replacement of Yates Mill’s waterwheel, a big project that we hope to undertake within the next year or two.

You can buy tickets at the park’s front desk, during our corn-grinding weekend tours on March 19 and 20, by contacting any member of the YMA board of directors or by sending an email to

Each ticket will get you a heaping plate of freshly made pork and chicken barbecue, sides, Yates Mill cornbread, dessert, and tea or water. We’ll also have live music to help wash it all down.

We hope to see you there!
