Farmer for a Week: Kids in the Kitchen

Appleton Farm's Kids in the Kitchen  program is geared to children aged 7-10

In the winter, many people hunker down to stay warm, but at Appleton Farms, we make the most of the cold, quiet season. There is no better place to spend winter farm days than in the kitchen! This camp is for kids who love to cook, explore, and be adventurous in the kitchen, and out on the trails. Each day kids will explore a different aspect of farm to table cooking, trying new foods, and learning about where our food comes from! Our morning will be filled with kitchen time, followed by an outdoor adventure of hiking, snowshoeing, and farm explorations. We’ll return to the house to try our concoctions and enjoy lunch together before heading home.  Recipes might include: bread & butter, farm frittata, apple & carrot muffins, homemade apple sauce, and butternut squash soup.
