Hello, May! New Classes, Workshops and More at Bella Luna Farms

Sunshine—finally! Along with this glorious turn in the weather, comes some happy news: We have just posted new spring and early summer dates for our Classes on the Farm workshops! Our May and June calendars can be found below, be sure to scroll down, take a peek, and register on our site.
(These classes would also make for a lovely, and unique, Mother’s Day gift; hint, hint!)

It’s going to be a great summer here at the farm, as we get closer and closer to completing our new classroom space to host these classes. To be affectionately called The Larder, this space will house a classroom kitchen and workspace for us to utilize for our farm-to-table experiences, and will also be home to a small farm market! It will be ready later in June, so come see it for yourself.

Check out the lineup below; see you soon!
