Cooking classes at the farm, taught by local chefs, are a fun and educational way to spend time with friends and make new ones.  Our hands-on classes are usually limited to ten people and (except for the canning classes) include a full dinner.  Prices vary.

     We offer classes for children too, aged 5 to 12, with Emily Florentino. These are from 2 to 4 pm Wednesdays or Saturdays and feature a farm activity (collecting eggs or visiting chicks, say), a craft, instruction in making at least 2 foods (e.g. chocolate beet brownies, kale chips, pumpkin raviolis), and a game.  Kids take home the craft creation, food, recipes and often the enthusiasm to cook at home. Food allergies are cheerfully accommodated with advance notice.  Limit: 10 kids; $48 each.

Nourish Yourself

Kate Mitcheom leads this weekend retreat December 1 to 3 with sessions of Mindfulness Meditation and Yoga and six farm to table meals prepared by the farm chefs using our organic produce.

Features of the Weekend Retreat:

  • Mindfulness practice based on the distinguished work of Jon Kabat-Zinn’s MBSR course.
  • Yoga based in mindfulness and grounded in the Anusara style of practice.  Appropriate for all levels of experience (beginners to experts).  Anusara, “flowing with grace,” pays attention to alignment to keep us straight, balanced and safe.
  • Saturday evening happy hour leading into dinner, then music & dancing.
  • Optional massage sessions available
  • Last but not least – Enjoy your food!… It’s one of the most basic yet powerful ways we can take care of our bodies, minds and spirits.

There are various ways to participate:  Luxe lodging (e.g. private room) for weekend: $700;  regular lodging for weekend: $650; weekend without lodging: $350; Day of Mindfulness (Sunday): $150.  Early bird (by 11/15) discounts!
