Maine: Salt Water Farm

Situated along the Maine coast overlooking Penobscot Bay, Salt Water Farm is a working farm where passionate local food lovers can literally get their hands dirty in the process of growing and raising their own food. From learning the principles behind constructing your own kitchen garden, exploring how edible flowers can be used in cooking and cocktails, to a lecture on foraging for native Maine food and mushrooms, the farm’s three-day workshops give campers a chance to understand how locally sourced ingredients can be incorporated into daily meals. As well, campers will have a chance to expand their culinary prowess, learning how to make butter from farm-fresh cream, boning chickens, and how to cook lobster affordably.


$425 for three days, lodging and meals not included.
