Weekend cooking classes

Local Food Cooking Classes

We offer a variety of classes at the farm. There are hands-on limited size classes that work  event directly with the ingredients and recipes under the expert guidance of Bill Jones. There are also larger demonstration classes that teach the student valuable information on the topic (ie. wild mushrooms) and offer a delicious sampling of the dishes after the demo. Check the details on each class for more information.

Our classes are popular gifts through our Gift Certificate program. Please click on the link for details. We also offer private classes on request. Hands on classes are also available for singles or couples.
