Fiddleheads Little Cooks Class (3-5 )

The class always begins with washing our hands, and gathering around the table. After putting on their aprons the kids are introduced to the ingredients and the name of the dish they will make. Each ingredients is explored, and children are encouraged to touch, smell and taste each of them. Taking turns, the participants of the class measure, mix and engage with our dish. As the dish is getting ready, we will often read books or work on a quick art or gardening craft. At the end of each class the children will sit together again to enjoy the food that they have prepared. They will be encouraged to discuss what they like or don’t like about the dish and share their thoughts.

While the dish is getting ready we will often have a quick discussion about how food grows, who grows it, and how it got to our kitchen,

Weekday Fable Group Tours

Tractors! Chickens! Eggs! Goats! Greenhouses! Regenerative practices! Don’t just read about farm life in books, bring your group to experience a real live, working farm with real live farmers right in your Westchester neighborhood! We would love to share with you and your group all of the important things we love about Fable in our one hour guided farm adventure.

Why do we love goat poop and rotten (as well as fresh) vegetables? How do we get an egg from a chicken? What is a ‘green’ house and why do we have one? How does Fable support other farmers and artisans in our area? How can you and the earth become healthier (and happier) together? These and other important questions will be answered in your hands-on farm tour of Fable.

Our one hour guided tours can be customized to meet the interests of your group. Busses (vans) are welcome. Tours may be conducted outdoors on grass and un-even surfaces. $250 per class of up to 20 people (including adult chaperones) $20 each additional person up to 25 people.
