The perfect setting to learn.
Other rooms in the cottage house the various culinary projects that reflect the seasons of the farm:
IPA beer brews in the warmer months, hard cider ferments in the winter while jams, jellies and pickled veggies are put up during the late summer harvests.
A look outside the kitchen window reveals the herb and vegetable garden, perfect for the chefs – and guests- to collect fresh ingredients for cooking. Beyond the garden is a sweeping view of the farm that includes the pasture dotted with sheep and, beyond that, the big field where many more vegetables are grown.
The greenhouse provides a space to start seedlings in the spring, as well as grow micro greens throughout the winter. Bees within their hives offer pollination for all that grows, as well as delicious wildflower honey for the table. And a visit to the chicken coop supplies the kitchen with beautiful fresh eggs.
Here, the farm not only provides many of the ingredients for the classes, but the inspiration for a seasonal, simple, and very local way of cooking- and eating.
