This summer we’re teaming up with Quillisascut for another round of farm camp! Located in Rice, Washington, Quillisascut is a rural farmstead that includes livestock, a small orchard and extensive gardens that supply the ingredients that nourish the farmers and guests. Every summer they invite guests to the farm for culinary workshops, where you’ll spend your days milking goats, making goat cheese, feeding, slaughtering, and butchering chickens, gathering eggs, harvesting garden vegetables, and foraging. Out of your day’s adventures, you’ll create meals that will include wood-fired sourdough bread, fresh-made yogurt, summer fruit jam, wood-oven rotisserie chicken, herbal infusions, wood-fired pizza, and so much more. On top of that, you will learn how to improvise meals based on what you harvest each day from the farm and have additional options in the farm garden to learn about local flowers, crack walnuts from the renowned tree, or try your hand at fermentation projects in the back kitchen.
This 4-day camp led by Renée Beaudoin and the Quillisascut family will take place July 21-24. Lodging is included and will be in either the farm’s clubhouse, the shepherds hut, or the glamping tent. There are two shared bathrooms with showers. Camping is also an option for those who want to sleep under the stars. Only fully vaccinated individuals may attend this class.
Quillisascut Farm Camp is geared for adults. Young adults can sometimes be accommodated as an exception based on their age level and interest (as well as must be accompanied by a parent or guardian). Please email to check in with us first if you have anyone under the age of 18 in your party.
