The Apprentice

Ethan Severance, 9, is the volunteer apprentice miller at Hagood Mill, an 1825 water-powered gristmill outside Pickens, S.C. Ethan has been working and learning the ins and outs of the mill since he was 2 years old; here he is grinding corn to be sold in the mill’s on-site gift shop. (A two-pound bag of white or yellow corn meal sells for $2.) — Erin Vorhies
