Cooking Classes at Foxhollow Farm

We have some exciting news! On April 28th we will be launching a new series of food and farming experiences! We have had the pleasure of conducting cooking demos for numerous audiences over the past four years, spreading our love of cooking and farm fresh food. Rarely do we have the opportunity to show you exactly where we find our most favorite veggies and grassfed beef so we decided it was time to bring you - our fellow food and farming enthusiasts - out to Foxhollow Farm to see for yourself! Cooking classes will start not in the ‘kitchen’ but in the garden, where you will be treated to a tour of Maggie’s kitchen garden and surrounding greenhouse, hoop house, and market garden beds where a variety of biodynamic veggies are grown throughout the year. After assisting with the harvest of goodies for our recipe, we will congregate in the historic dairy barn where Lindsey and Maggie will demo original recipes featuring the food we’ve gathered. A wealth of kitchen and gardening tips and tricks will be shared throughout along with samples for all. Recipes for each experience will be dictated by the season and what is currently flourishing in the fields. We believe in the power of growing and cooking good, clean, fair food and look forward to meeting you on the farm! Click here to reserve your spot today.

Filming of season 1 is well underway. We have filmed four of the six episodes and have met the most inspirational food and farming friends! Our episodes have taken us across Kentucky, from a feature on the Hindman Settlement School and Grow Appalachia; to an in depth look at hunger in Louisville and how area farmers are partnering with Dare to Care to feed the food insecure; to a profile on the efforts being made to revitalize the farming community of Henry County. We are excited to wrap up season 1 with the filming of 2 additional episodes. We can't wait to premier on KET in Spring 2019. Stay tuned!

Pilot Episode filmed at Foxhollow Farm

Pilot Episode filmed at Foxhollow Farm

We've got great news! We are excited to announce that the pilot episode of The Farmer and The Foodie will premiere on Kentucky Educational Television (KET) August 23rd at 10:30pm EST. The episode kicks off on the farm. Lindsey and I forage through the woods at Foxhollow Farm to gather ramps and tour the grassfed beef herd with head cattleman, Derek. We head into the kitchen next and cook a deliciously farm fresh meal together. Lindsey shares fascinating foodie tips and I recruit some help, an adorable special guest from the barn. We toast al fresco, while the sun sets over the pasture and enjoy grassfed beef short rib tacos, ramp pesto potato salad, and pickles veggies. I can't wait to film more episodes with Lindsey and enjoy meals together on the farm. 

Grassfed Beef Short Rib Tacos

Grassfed Beef Short Rib Tacos

At first brush, the short rib can be intimidating, these bone-in cuts requiring a fair amount of time, but in fact little attention, to become fall-off-the-bone tender and mind-blowingly delicious. While short ribs are a favorite for the winter season when slow-roasts reign supreme, we are absolutely in love with the richness they add to tacos, one of our favorite summer meals. Perfect for a crowd, these short rib tacos are sure to knock the socks off of whoever is lucky enough to share them with you!
