Sunflower Farm Offers Workshops Year Round! Our goal is to provide a break from the daily grind and a window into the most human parts of yourself. While our workshops offer diverse explorations, each experience is grounded in creativity, community and connections to nature. Of course, a visit with the goat herd is part of every gathering!
Perhaps you have been so busy keeping up with life that you have not had time to honor your creative side. Life moves more slowly at the farm and there is all the space you need here to take an afternoon for yourself and delve into a creative project.
Come paint, write, make a small felted goat or a piece of jewelry. Goats are brave and independent. Channel that feeling as you crafts something that reflects their spirit and your own unique identity.
You will leave with evidence of your creative power and might just go home eager to make space in your days to create more.

Food & Local Culture
May through December we offer periodic cheese classes for beginner cheese makers exploring Farmer's Cheese, Chèvre, Feta and Cajeta. Every class is a mixture of tasting, creating and learning. Choose some fresh ingredients from the farm's herb garden and mix up your own goat cheese to take home to share. At the end of class try your hand at goat milking. Some wine and laughter always mixed in for good measure!
Once the cheese season winds down, come inside for intimate cooking classes. Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is a Danish word that can only be experienced when we slow down enough to savor everyday beauty. While there’s no one English word to describe hygge, it can be captured in the ideas of cosiness, charm, happiness, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness. It is this concept that will be at the heart of our winter workshops. Cozy up to new recipes which use the best local ingredients and international inspiration to delight your senses. Meet new friends who love food, a warm fire and memorable conversation as much as you do!

Always wanted to own your own herd, but nervous about learning the details of goat care? Or maybe you are interested in pretending you have a farm for a few hours without any of the responsibility? We have opportunities for everyone.
Come for a one hour goat yoga class in the field, followed by goat visiting and cheese tasting every Thursday during June, July & August.
Or come to our spring Intro to Goats Class and learn to trim hooves, milk a goat and give shots. Bringing home kids this spring and feel a little nervous? Then this class is an excellent chance to ask lots of questions and to connect with others who are getting goats for the first time.
