The Sanctuary

The Kitchen at New Spring Farm

Our kitchen was designed to support both the needs of our sustainable farm, as well as for education and nourishment for our guests. Designed and well suited for food processing and producing the food we grow, we use our kitchen to maximize the productivity of our harvests. We also welcome you our guests, to join in the community for a cooking class, retreat, or informal gathering.

Our Kitchen Practices

We uphold safe kitchen practices, with strict adherence to hygiene, storage, preparation, cooking, and serving guidelines.

Organic Food Preparation

Healthy food means a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy spirit.

Food Education

Learning what foods to eat and how to prepare them is the cornerstone to a healthy lifestyle.

Fermenting & Preserving

Learn how to preserve fresh food for long-term storage using fermentation practices that increase nutrients, while creating beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics.

Herbal Medicine

Using wild harvested herbs, learn how to process and prepare medicinal tinctures, oils, and energetic essences.

Shelf Stable Storable Foods

As a sustainable living farm, we are mindful of maximizing our summer harvest, utilizing food preservation practices to ensure that the food we grow will last as long as possible. Healthy food means a healthy body, a healthy mind, and a healthy spirit.  Our vegetables, fruits, and herbs are all grown using organic and biodynamic processes. We then turn this food into storable foods including pickled and fermented foods.
