Tax included.


Founder and Owner of Wiley Canning Company, Chelsea J. O’Leary, will be joining us on the farm! The goal of this Wiley Workshop is to increase your confidence, intuition, and independence when preserving fruits and vegetables.

This workshop is a greeting into the world of canning, pickling, and preserving. Join Chelsea here at the farm to further understand home food preservation and the ways it deepens our relationship with ourselves and our food. We plan to focus on our summer bounty, specifically tomatoes.

The aim of Introduction to Home Food Preservation is to understand the key concepts of canning, pickling, and preserving. We define, compare, and contrast the three major themes of home food preservation. We review scientific concepts such as heat, pressurization, pH, and why they matter, as well as safety and organization. We then apply this knowledge to tomato products specifically.

You will leave this workshop with the foundational knowledge needed to understand exactly what is happening in your kitchen as you can, pickle, and preserve seasonal fruits and vegetables. In other words, you will leave this workshop with a sharpened intuition for this practice. Next, you will know exactly what to purchase or borrow to can, pickle, or preserve for the first time at home. Lastly, you will be ready to dive into your first recipe, specifically a tomato recipe!

Light snacks will be provided. This is a BYOB event. If you'd like to enjoy sips at this workshop, we welcome you to bring your own bottle!
