Private Workshops


Our farm kitchen workshops are a wonderful way to bring people together, learn a new skill, and have a great time. We generally hold two public workshops a month, but are happy to book additional private workshops for interested groups. Here’s the low-down:

  • Private workshops MUST be booked approximately one month (or more) in advance.

  • Your workshop will include all the necessary ingredients and materials for your participants, plus step-by-step instructions and guidance. We do ask that participants bring their own knives for chopping. All other materials are provided.

  • We are happy to come to a private location of your choosing, so long as you have sufficient seating and working space for all of your participants, a sink nearby, and extra space for the workshop materials to be set up. We will need access to your location at least one and half hours prior to the scheduled start of your workshop to set up, and clean up afterward typically takes 30-60 minutes.

  • If you don’t have a private location that would work we are happy to book a space for your workshop, for a $50 room fee, due at the time you pay your deposit.

  • As the coordinator of a private workshop, you are responsible for signing up/coordinating your own workshop participants and collecting any payments from them (if your organization isn’t paying for the whole thing.)

  • All private workshops require a $300 non-refundable deposit. This is due at the time you book your workshop and includes materials for up to ten participants. (The $50 room fee, if applicable, is also due when you book your workshop!)

  • Any additional participants beyond the first ten cost $25/each. A final count of participants, plus payment for them, is due no later than 48 hours BEFORE your scheduled workshop.

  • Workshops are capped at no more than 32 participants.

  • As an urban farm working to advance the cause of local/seasonal eating, we strive to conduct workshops that are SEASONALLY APPROPRIATE. In the winter time in a place like Erie that means things like making your own sauerkraut or kimchi, or brewing your own kombucha or ginger beer. We can talk about what you’d like to do at your workshop when we discuss all the other details.
