Walnut Hill 1788 Biscuit Mix
The Pottingers have been noted for sumptuous food made from family recipes dating back to the 16th century. Migrating to Nelson Co., KY in 1781, they established the Fort; Pottingers Station to feed and protect travelers. In 1788 they built the first brick home near the Fort known as Walnut Hill where they continued their hospitality. Today, Blendex Company carries on that same great tradition with skilled food craftsmen under the supervision of general manager Ronald Pottinger.
