Farmhouse Kitchen

Mission Statement

The Farmhouse Kitchen is a shared-use, commercial kitchen facility.  It provides kitchen space for local food entrepreneurs to explore new food business ideas with minimum capital investment, allows farmers to add value to their raw agricultural products, and existing food businesses to sustain and scale-up.  In addition to preparing products for sale, the kitchen is also equipped for cooking demonstrations, educational classes and training, and is available for private functions.
