Our Classes

Each class features a tasting menu prepared by Chef Ben in front of you, while he explains different techniques used to make the dishes in your kitchen easily. This is an interactive class with lots of Q & A during the meal.


All of our classes take place at our On-Farm market and feature seasonal ingredients grown in Essex County, usually right from our field just a few yards away from the course.

Each course is paired with a wine or beer selection from an Essex County winery or brewery. Past partners have included Muscedre Winery, GL Heritage Brewing, CREW, Pelee Island Winery, Kingsville Brewing and many more.
