Do-It-Yourself Food Week
Sponsor Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center
Type of Event Education
Description Organic farming, backyard gardening and permaculture are moving communities toward sustainability. This week, you too can learn to repair the world with a pickle and advance planetary health with goat cheese! Come harvest fresh vegetables and herbs, milk the goats and then join us in the kitchen to learn traditional methods of artisanal food production and preservation. Discover how to make lacto-fermented (brined) pickles, sauerkraut, dilly beans and kim chi. Prepare your own herbal teas, medicinal tinctures, salves and lip balm. Produce and preserve vinegar pickles and beets, tomato sauce and salsa, bomb jelly (a sweet/hot spread), schug (Yemeni chili paste) and other hot sauces. Use our goat milk to create chevre (a creamy spreadable goat cheese), feta (brined goat cheese), yogurt and labaneh (yogurt cheese). Maybe you are interested in artisanal foods because of the health benefits, maybe you are a natural do-it-yourselfer, a food activist, a locavore, an aspiring suburban homesteader… or maybe you just like to eat! Whatever your motivation, we’ll show you how to do it all yourself. Adamah Staff and Alumni have been creating tasty, organic, kosher food products on the farm for over seven years. We have had a licensed food business for four years and our products get rave reviews and sell out every year. We have a ten-acre organic farm from which to harvest vegetables, fruit, herbs and goat milk and a certified kosher production kitchen. We hand milk our goats and use a micro-dairy processor to ensure safe and tasty small-scale batches of cheese and yogurt.
