At the farm

Well, here they are... the new classes at the farm. I am so excited about our second season of classes at the farm. Last year Allyson was an apprentice. This year she is a permanent part of the team. Allyson adds so much to our classes and I am so happy to work with her.

Last season we asked for your feedback, and we listened. This year we've added a new series of classes. "Cooking From the Garden" where you'll learn not only how to cook the freshest ingredients but how to grow them as well. We have classes on bread making, canning and healthy eating. "Our Healthy Kitchen Series" will give you in-depth knowledge about how to eat healthfully. This is Jean Jones' specialty and she will be teaching this new series of classes. For more information about this classes go to the Jone's web site. Online registration is still in the works so for now you'll have to register in-person at the winery. Registration is available in the Winery Tasting Room, open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from 11:00-5:00.
