Workshops

Have you always thought about baking your own delicious sourdough bread but weren’t sure where to start or whether you would be able to do it?

Look no further my friend, this is where you can come and throw all of your insecurities aside! I will help you figure out the details and encourage you to use your intuition to learn to bake sourdough with all of your senses.

Bread baking is a unique blend of art and science. There is no one way to do it and no wrong way either, but learning some of the basics goes a long way in creating that unbelievable loaf with a beautiful crusty outside and a buttery crumb on the inside.

I am offering a few different workshops that you can check out below!

I can’t wait to have you out to the farm and teach you how to bake bread.
