Cooking together and having fun in the kitchen makes our farm family happy and we want to share that enthusiasm for cooking with you. We will make homemade rolls and top them with freshly made Jersey butter. We will learn about how our cows turn green grass to creamy, nutritious milk, then enjoy the sweet fruits of our labor together. This program is designed for families with children ages 4-7 (but younger kids are welcome if you can give a helping hand).

It’s Strawberry season here on the farm and we’re celebrating the arrival of this favorite crop by cooking up all things strawberry in the kitchen! Our workshop begins with a brief walk out to the fields (weather permitting), learning more about berries while sampling and harvesting some for our class. We’ll then head to the kitchen to prepare a delicious menu of sweet & savory strawberry recipes while covering traditional cooking skills and techniques along the way. Class includes hands-on cooking, professional chef instruction, printed recipes, and a ‘strawberry celebration’ dinner at the end of the evening. BYOB beer & wine allowed.
Celebrate our Earth, farming, and delicious food with this fun hands-on planting and cooking experience! We’ll start in the teaching kitchen and get cooking. Kids will practice basic measuring and knife skills as we work together to whip up a tasty farm frittata with our own eggs. While our creation cooks kids will plant their own mini herb garden to take home. Learn about what plants need to survive and see what were planting in our own kitchen garden. Afterwards we’ll enjoy our snack together!
Our cheese making classes are back! Join Appleton’s own award-winning cheese maker, Kristian Holbrook, for a hands-on cheese making class in our farm kitchen.
