Farms & Food

TFI Cooks

Excite your senses, expand your palate and broaden your cooking repertoire, with hands-on cooking classes for adults, children, and couples.

What Do We Offer?

Public Cooking Classes & Workshops
Gather in The FARM Institute’s state-of-the-art farm kitchen and classroom for hands-on cooking classes with professional chef instructors and cookbook authors. Classes focus on local, regional and international cuisine and offer opportunities to understand flavor profiles, new ingredients, special techniques and the importance of farm fresh food. We offer evening and daytime classes for adults and daytime classes for children. Classes are limited in size, to guarantee a rewarding learning experience and good time for all. Each class concludes with the opportunity to share culinary creations together. Pre-registration is required for all classes. A class list is available on the website.

Thursday Farm Dinners
TFI’s Thursday Farm Dinners are a ‘must-do’ summer experience. Friends and family members will enjoy a relaxing evening including watching the sunset over the farm fields, passed hors d’oeuvres, a gorgeous al fresco dinner incorporating farm-fresh ingredients, live music, lawn games and beverages including local craft beer and wine.

Dinners are held rain or shine, from June through September, and sell out quickly. Pre-registration is required.
