*Registration for this event is full. Check out the rest of our on-farm summer event lineup.

Join us for a hands-on baking workshop with local grains and sourdough at Brot Bakehouse School and Kitchen in Fairfax.  Learn all about the beauty (and challenges) of natural bread making with local grains. Discussion topics will include the principles of natural fermentation in bread making, allergy-friendly baking, and selling and marketing your bread locally. Then, get your hands into the (sour-)dough to make a natural leavened flatbread. Plus, taste different breads made with locally grown wheat, rye, and corn. The workshop is designed for farmers and bakers who would like to start baking and sell directly to customers, supplement a CSA, bake for a farmers market, or open up a small cottage bakery, although it is also open to home bakers.

What to Bring:

Comfortable, sturdy, closed-toed shoes (like clogs); tie for pulling back long hair; extra clothing layers for outdoor breaks.

*We aim to keep our event prices low, but if registration is a barrier, please reach out about scholarships. NOFA-VT offers the option of free registration to anyone who identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC) in an effort to actively work toward dismantling systems of racism that have historically disadvantaged BIPOC and continue to do so today. Learn more.

Additionally, members of NOFA-VT may attend workshops at a discounted rate. Those with farm-level memberships, business-level memberships, or friends of NOFA memberships may enroll up to four participants at the discounted rate. Learn more about membership.
