DIY Latte Art Seminar with Good Cup Coffee

Class this afternoon starts under the gazebo in the middle of the pond at Middle Ground. We’ll be joined by our friends from Good Cup Coffee who you’ll find brewing things up every Saturday morning at the Matthews Community Farmers Market. After a fun latte art demo, we’ll all get a chance to try our hand at creating this decorative addition of cream to our coffee. 

Farm Tour

Then it’s off to get a better lay of the land as we walk a farm tour from the pond to the orchard, the hydroponic lettuce barn and see their new hemp production. We’ll also meet the friendly farm dogs, goats, chickens and ducks. 

Late Sunday Lunch

After the tour, we’ll cook with all that is in season and part of the Middle Ground Farm harvest. 

Think recipes with fresh figs, elderberries, peaches, plums and more. We’ll also incorporate Middle Ground Farm‘s pork, eggs and hydroponic lettuce into many of the recipes.
