LEARNING TO GROW AND COOK "REAL" FOOD
Farmhouse School is located on a historic prairie farmstead in Campton Hills, a far western suburb of Chicago, where we grow over 50 crops on 2+ acres using organic practices. We aim to spark a love of "real" food, especially in kids. Hands-on food experiences clear a path to less screen time and processed foods, with more wonder, dirt, sweat, creativity and experimentation.
Working with ingredients straight from the garden, and giving students a direct hand in the harvesting and cooking, builds excitement, pride and healthy appetites. Please grab an apron, and join me in this happy, wholesome pursuit.
WHAT IS "REAL" FOOD?
REAL FOOD IS AN ALTERNATIVE TO FAST FOOD.
IT IS USUALLY RECOGNIZABLE, TRACEABLE TO ITS SOURCE, AND DEVOID OF CHEMICAL OR INDUSTRIAL PROCESSING.
IT CELEBRATES THE SEASONAL AND THE LOCAL.
IT IS ENVIRONMENTALLY AND CULTURALLY SUSTAINABLE
