Sustainable Life Educational Events

Learn more about what we do on the farm, how lived sustainability works, and how we integrate progressive, regenerative philosophies into our everyday practices. Join us for a guided, educational farm tour, followed by a round table discussion with wood-fired pizza, salads, and gelato. Tickets $40 each. Please arrive on-time for the start of the tour at 1:00 pm. Reservations requested.  Check out the events schedule for available dates for this new educational event.

Open Studio Art and Skills Classes

Hands-on learning is the best way to gain a new skill, try something different, and create a special outing with friends and family with a unique take-home item you made yourself!

"Open Studio" means that a class will be offered over a period of time (usually a month or two), during which you can contact us to book a class during that window.  That means instead of us guessing what day or time might work for you, we say "Here's the options," and you let us know when to reserve your time for a class.  There's no minimum number of students necessary for an open studio class, so please make sure to check the events calendar for available dates and contact us!

Seasonal Classes

Seasonally, we offer a delightful array of classes in a variety of creative mediums.  From master pumpkin carving to wreathmaking, crochetting to needle felting, rugmaking and more, stay tuned with our e-newsletter or watch our events calendar for the latest updates on available classes.  Classes are fun for one, two, or even eight people, and are often family friendly.

Farmstead and WITC

Farmstead Creamery is now partnering with WITC (Wisconsin Inidanhead Technical College) to host classes here through their continuing education program.  This includes arts classes by Laura but also new and interesting options such as culinary classes with Chef Christopher Ray of 5-Course Catering.  For the latest schedule of available classes through WITC, check out their class finder: www.witc.edu/classfinder

Creative Workshop Series

This last winter, we hosted our first winter-long series of writing classes (co-hosted by Laura Berlage and John Adler) based on Natali Goldberg's "Writing Down the Bones."  A great success that was a creative and encouragement breakthrough for many of the students, we met on second and fourth Thursdays of the month, October through March--crafting works that will make an appearance in this summer's Spoken Word Series.

Starting fall of 2017, our plan is to host another workshop series, this time based on Julia Cameron's "The Artist's Way."  Creative people of all mediums are welcome, including writers, visual artists, musicians, dancers, and more!  Break out of your wintry blues, build camaraderie, and be encouraged and inspired on your creative path.  Please contact us to get the latest notifications about this upcoming workshop and enrollment opportunities.
