If you’ve got a budding chef in the works, or you just want raise a more competent human in the kitchen, this is the perfect place for your teenager to spend a few afternoons of their Summer Vacation.

They will spend time outside on the farm, learning the importance of the connection between farm and kitchen, and even get to spend some time with the animals! By the final day, we think your savvy new cook will be begging to show off their improved kitchen skills at home, with a greater respect for where their food comes from.
