The perfect winter DIY classes

For such a long time in our history, if people wanted something, they had to make it. There wasn’t a corner store that carried one of everything. You couldn’t just run to Target to get whatever you needed for the holiday, or pick up out-of-season veggies at the grocery store. Now, we can find pretty much whatever we want, whenever we want it. With that, we’ve lost the skills we once had: of doing things ourselves. Now, though, when we learn a new skill, it isn’t purely a question of survival. We can learn things for fun, to sate our natural curiosity. There’s a new kind of freedom in that.

Our next few workshops embrace old skills in a new world. We’re starting with a Sourdough Bread Baking workshop on November 21. We’ve collaborated with Greg Hall of local Khorasan Mills to bring you an introduction to this baking tradition. At this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to create your own sourdough starter, and how to use it to bake a loaf of delicious old-fashioned bread. Sourdough bread baking is an ancient technique that results in tasty, healthful bread you can share with your family.

For those of you who, like us, cherish a handmade holiday decoration, we’ve opened up two Holiday Wreath Making workshops on December 3 and 5. You’ll spend time in good company learning how to make a custom 22” holiday wreath to hang on your door. Our friends at Local Roots Flower Farm will guide you through choosing a pine base and adding dried citrus, acorns, eucalyptus, and other classic holiday design elements.

Come join us to revisit old skills in a modern world and to find a new passion to take home!

Saying farewell to 2019
Saying farewell to 2019

December 26, 2019

This is our last email of the year. Our last of the decade - though since Snuck isn’t a decade old, that feels a little strange to say. (Who can say what we’ll look like when 2030 rolls around!) A lot has happened this year, most of it good.

Not your typical farm
Not your typical farm

December 19, 2019

When people hear that I’m a farmer, they have a certain set of expectations. We all know what the prototypical farm looks like: long, straight rows of crops, maybe a few animals, a red barn, a silo. We have a picture in our minds of what we’ll see.
