Summer program at Venetucci Farm - Farm to Fork, Cooking with Kids

By Heather Mitchell, Natural Chef

Imagine learning about chickens, collecting their eggs, still warm in the nest, and then making a delicious omelet with herbs and veggies harvested right from the fields!

For a few years, I have been teaching a cooking class to the kids participating in the Venetucci Farm’s Summer Programs for Kids.  The class has been an enjoyable way to close the week, inviting family to come and sample some of the amazing food grown on the farm.  Last year, we decided to expand on this idea and create a week long class called Farm to Fork, Cooking with Kids.  With a week-long class, we thought we would be able to dig in deep with children who are interested in learning more about farming, food and culinary skills. 

The class was a success and we are offering two week long classes this summer.  My goals for this class are to give the participants a strong understanding of what it takes to bring healthy, local food to the table and why this is important. We witness the farmers seeding, weeding, watering and cultivating the plants by hand in the hot summer sun.  We meet and care for the piglets, goats and chickens and learned how they are integrated into the system. This year there is also a Brown Swiss Cow as well as sheep and border collies to learn about. Then we harvest the stellar vegetables, clean them and prepare them for lunch each day.  After each meal, we sit and reflect on how much respect is owed to everyone involved with local food. 

As a Natural Chef, I also incorporated teaching about well being.  We discuss how living food is healthier than food that travels to us from afar.  The kids learn how important it is to know the sources of our food and why pastured animals are healthier and happier.  I am pleasantly surprised that many of these kids already understand why chemical free food is important and that animals who live outside are not stressed, sick or treated with medications.  Our discussions each day leave me feeling positive about the upcoming generation. 

On the final day of our class we complete an Iron Chef Challenge.  Two teams of kiddos create and correctly write recipes, prepare and cook food and present their accomplishments to their parents.  It is a fun way to show how much they had learned, their enthusiasm was palpable.  Last year we heard good comments from the parents about how the kids were excited to cook dinner for the family, start a garden at home and even encouraged the family to compost. 

I teach many classes, but teaching kids is the most rewarding.  They are so honest, genuine and excited to learn.  I am grateful to be a part of the Venetucci summer education programs.
