Workshops on the Farm

You’re invited to take part in homesteading, farming, gardening and culinary learning experiences at Blackwood through our hands-on workshop series. We have created age appropriate experiences for children as well as adults and we scheduled them to occur on the same dates so everyone in the family can enjoy time on the farm!

Two workshop options are offered each date – Country Living (ages 14+) and Kids on the Farm (ages 8-13). See below for Farm Workshop descriptions!
