Winter Wreath Workshop

As we near the winter solstice, with shorter days and chilly nights, we find ourselves spending more time indoors. Harvest wreaths and advent wreaths have been used for centuries as symbols of the changing of the seasons. Wreaths are made to bring a touch of greenery indoors during an otherwise dormant time of year - evergreens are a reminder of strength, resilience and continuity. Whether you love the holidays or try to avoid the craze, making a winter wreath is a truly joyful process and a great way to spend an early December evening with a friend or two.

SOLD OUT - Compost Dinner

As people who spend our days farming we strive to see as little food waste as possible. Simply stated, wasted food is wasted energy. So we look for ways we can cut down, we turn bruised peppers into hot sauce and split tomatoes into sauce. After our big butcher paper dinners, crab and crawfish bodies are added into our compost. As the shells break down, the calcium and other nutrients help enrich the soil. But what about the crops that we simply don't have a market for? The edible weeds and seeds that are found in abundance on our farm but at the end of the day are not harvested because we don't have a buyer. As farmers we are just one part of the equation. We need creative chefs who are looking to solve the same problems we are and are considering the full picture.
