From the Farmer

It has been wonderful seeing all of you at the farm as you enjoy the summer. From the beginning, our goal was to create a space that we could share with the community – and all of you are a part of that. We wanted to offer good food and a space for people to engage with nature and farming. And over the years, we’ve realized that people have similar questions. How do I preserve the produce I’ve picked? Is it hard to make pickles? Can you teach me how to can the sauce I have made from all these tomatoes??

We love answering your questions and please always stop one of us and ask! But we also wanted to try and be somewhat organized in answering/teaching on some topics. And thus, the summer class series was born.

Check out the courses we are offering this summer and sign up for any that you are intersted in. They are held at the farm, unless stated otherwise, and are a lot of fun.
