Ever since Farmview Market opened, we have been obsessed with their yummy lunch and breakfast. The locally-sourced grocery and Saturday Farmers Market keeps our kitchen stocked at home and now, with their class offerings, we can learn how to cook and make a thing or two for when they aren’t open for dinner! Mark your calendar for these upcoming events and classes at Farmview!
With classes in wellness, nutrition, hobby farming, homesteading, cooking, gardening, food growing, harvesting, canning and preserving, there is surely something to suit every fancy at the Farmview Schoolhouse! Classes are taught by local teachers, farmers, and enthusiasts and, with every class, you’ll leave with more knowledge and something to take home to your family!
