Class Schedule

About Our Classes

We run a variety of classes at the Ag Center!

Look for our Childrens’ Nature series, gardening with local experts and small farmers, and some ag-focused classes.

Culinary classes at The Farmhouse Kitchen offer home cooks the opportunity to learn from local professionals. Our chefs come from different backgrounds and disciplines, sharing information about a variety of cultures and diets, cooking techniques, nutrition and wellness. Classes at The Farmhouse Kitchen are a place to have fun with old and new friends.  Class size is limited so students receive personal attention. Each class features tastings or a light meal, and sometimes we send you home with what you have made.

We hope you will flip through our schedule and sign up now!
