Kenzie McDonald is a long time friend of the farm, who shares our love for good food raised well and children's education. Kenzie has brought herbal plants to our gardens and worked along side us as a Camp Bread and Butter counselor. In the fall of 2017, Kenzie launched the first Bread and Butter Herbal Classes, which she taught in our farm store and in the surrounding fields and forests. We are excited to continue our collaboration with Kenzie in the form of the winter herbal classes, and a week herbal theme at Camp Bread & Butter this summer. See below for more information about the new classes coming up this winter!
