We are beyond happy to invite Mountain Feed and Farm Supply back for another season of kick-butt, information packed, entertaining, skill building, fun and funny preservation classes set at the sweet and charming Felton, Downtown and Scotts Valley farmers’ markets. This year we’ll be hosting a series of crop-focused demos in which the audience learns the essentials and the tricks when it comes to BLUEBERRIES AND STRAWBERRIES MAY, STONE FRUIT in JUNE, TOMATOES and APPLES in AUGUST, APPLES in SEPTEMBER and PUMPKINS in OCTOBER. These workshops are FREE and lead by the outstanding Mountain Feed staff. Jessica Tunis is an excellent teacher and has spent hundreds of hours with her hands deep in brine, squished berries, bubbling concoctions and other food projects. When it comes to making magic happen with the bounty of seasonal fruits and vegetables from the markets, these are the folks you want to have on your team.
