Lee and Larry Newlin, the owners of Peaceful River Farm, grow sustainable produce and fruit, offer healthy cooking classes, and hold talks about strategies for maintaining good health through cooking.
The fresh produce grown on the farm is used in the creative and healthy recipes used by Lee in her cooking classes. Guests can choose from a variety of cooking classes, ranging from hearty, plant-based dinners, which are dairy-free, gluten-free, and totally plant-based, to learning the essentials of Mediterranean cooking, how to make delicious soups, and cooking to build immunity and prevent colds and flu.
Classes are lively and rich with information about the benefits of nutritional foods and helpful techniques to make healthy cooking fun. Guests are also treated to a farm tour with Lee’s husband Larry, who shares methods to build healthy soil for healthy food and employ sustainable farm techniques to ensure the growth of healthy produce.
