Learn to can any time of the year, be ready for the first fruits of spring!

The Cannery is in full swing year-round and offering regular instructional opportunities. We create classes on demand.  Our goal is to empower our students to feel confident to repeat the recipes and process at home. Check out our calendar for current class offerings or choose your own date with friends.

Our introductory canning class, “We CAN! Water Bath 101” focuses on waterbath canning with a discussion of history and safety principles. We can an in-season product and each student takes home a jar of finished product. All supplies are provided, tasting is encouraged. We also offer classes on gardening, pressure canning, cheese making, soap making, pasta and bread, and more!

Cooking Classes and Events are available upon request for groups of six or more. How about  “Hors d’oeuvres for Dinner”, “Artisan Bread Baking”, “Dehydrating: Healthy and Unique Meals and Snacks”, “Fermenting: Nature’s Probiotics”, “Sports Bar Appetizers” or “Wine and Cheese Making”? Classes are designed to meet the interests of the participants.

From Midwest Living:

This place is awesome! Very quaint but with a modern, spotless kitchen. My son and I stopped out of curiosity, thinking it was a place to buy canned goods and the normal touristy things. We were pleasantly surprised. It is unique and very much needed in these times of doing it yourself. I’ve canned for many years. My mother taught me. But there are things I don’t know how to do such as making jam and using the pressure cooker. I plan on taking classes for these. I also work in our high school kitchen so I know what a good kitchen should look like. Very impressed, so glad we stopped. And the owners are very nice people!!”
