Quillisascut began as a bare piece of land, brimming with possibility, at least for Rick and Lora Lea Misterly, who have been living and farming there for a handful of decades, with little sign of slowing down. Besides growing a garden and a small orchard, the farm was the home base for a thriving goat cheese business, and is now the place where chefs, home cooks, and other farm-curious people congregate in summer workshop settings to learn about farming, cooking, and the treasures of the region. Check the website for offerings ranging from an afternoon to several days on the farm—choose from classes with topics like home cheesemaking, nocino-making (walnut liqueur or nonalcoholic syrup), tamales, lefse, Farm Culinary 101 and even a custom option. Check the website for the latest availability and application information. Whatever workshop you choose, you’ll be well-fed and totally immersed in farm life, a rare, delightful experience worth savoring.
