Mention the words “Grange Hall” to anyone familiar with rural communities and chances are the first thing that comes to mind is food. Pancake breakfasts, or chicken-and-biscuit dinners, are a long-standing tradition with the Grange. The word grange is derived from the Latin word granum, meaning grain, and is historically associated with the granges of England and Ireland—large farming estates. From the Grange’s inception, members would share a meal together before business of the evening was attended to, since after all, with food comes fellowship. The Grange became an important foundation of rural social life and sought to change legislative and political policies for the betterment of farmers and their families and communities.
