Family Farm Camp – July 8 – 11
Families are welcome to join us for a 4 day retreat weekend to immerse in the natural world and connect with meaningful community and farm fresh food, with Shabbat preparation & celebration. Enjoy the beauty of connecting with the earth, your food and using all your senses in the preparation and delight of the local meals.
We are honored to welcome Oyven as they cater the meal with their traveling wood fired oven and bring rich programming that connects us to our food and ancestral ways of breaking bread together. Make challah, pita, and pizza with them and connect to the rich Jewish food traditions.
Rustic camping sites provided in the farm field. If you don’t like camping there are many local bed and breakfasts in the area, book ahead of time. Fun for all ages.
