Make beer, sow seeds, and so much more! My husband who is a home brewere was in Nirvana - Dave shared some great tips and together they brewed beer from beginnig to end using some ingredients from the Farm. It was a fun group experience - with all present helping to prepare some of the farm grown ingredients that went into the beer. We also had a very informative tour of the Farm. We are now inspired to revive our long neglected garden with some of the methods used by Dave and Lisa in their healthy, happy and productive garden. We also met, held and fed Dave and Lisa's chickens - these girls provided the eggs used in the delicious breakfasts of quiche and frittata - along with handpicked fruits, veggies and herbs we picked from the garden. Also, as part of our Experience, Lisa taught us how to make yoghurt, and three kinds of cheese!! in such a way that we left knowing that we could make these too. Lisa also taught us how to make crackers using the spent grain from the beer making process - they were delicious topped with our fresh made cheese. Lisa is an amazing cook and teacher. I would recommend staying with Dave and Lisa and booking the Make Beer and Sow Seeds Experience - you will have a great time!!!

A beautiful day in the sun with people committed to resiliency education and connecting people to the food that sustains us. They are both very knowledgeable and passionate and lead the way for us to lead happier and healthier lives through beer, cheese, chickens, and urban gardens. I learned a lot and ate well. I wish I took notes!

What an amazing, unique, earthy, inspiring experience! I learned so much and felt right at home. The fresh prepared meal is delicious as well as the beer!! (Thai Tiger beer was one of the best beers I've ever had, so spicy and fresh and yummy). If you are interested in starting your own self sustaining farm from big to small, this is a great experience. It was also awesome to learn how to make the simple recipes of yogurt, cheese, and crackers. I made the crackers the next day with the kindly gifted herbs from their garden. Thank you!!

Lisa and Dave are so knowledgeable about farming, beer brewing, and basically every topic that they introduced to us over the course of the day! Their passion for the subject is so infectious, and it was amazing to feel like I was able to give back to the farm by helping out with the farmyard chores. They sent us off with some fresh veggies and some herb sprigs to plant at the end of the day, and I'm looking forward to trying my hand at making my own cheeses and yogurts!
