PICNICS at the FARM, We are offering a weekly menu of authentic, locally-grown Korean dishes for 1-6 people to enjoy at private picnic sites. You’ll be able to stay socially distant while getting close to nature in the fresh air. We will be inviting guests to join us on the farm for these informal picnics each Friday and Sunday from August 2nd to October 11.

Kimchee Classes with Ms. Kim

Ever wanted to make your own kimchee, but too intimidated to try? After a HANDS ON Kimchee Workshop with Ji Young Kim, you'll know all there is to know about making traditional, flavorful and nutritious kimchee at home.  

Ms. Kim is available for private workshops both in NYC and Roxbury, New York (the Catskills). We use organic produce grown at our farm, which you and Ji will prepare into two types of kimchee to take home.  Plus, Ji will prepare an authentic Korean lunch to enjoy throughout the workshop. She is the best cook in the world (we're not biased at all), so you want to come hungry!

A typical workshop is approximately 4 hours and includes
  • 30-40 minute lecture about the history of kimchee, benefits of making and cooking food at home and developing your own flavor, plus an education on the health benefits of fermented foods
  • 1 hour preparing kimchee, 2 seasonal varieties
  • 1 hour eating lunch
  • wrap up & pack your kimchee into jars to take home, (2) 1/2 gallons. 
Plus, leave with Ms. Kim's pantry recommendations and tips about how to use farm market vegetables and foraged foods to make your homemade sauces for banchans, salads and marinades. Ji is from Pusan where kimchee is typically loaded up with seafood, however Ji has recipes with maple syrup, kombu and fruit for vegan, vegetarian diets.  
Email us (farm@eastbranchfarms.com) for a private workshop request today, and keep an eye out for our public class schedule, the perfect holiday gift idea!

For Catskills adventurers, overnight accommodations on the farm and pick up from Trailways Bus in Arkville is available. Arrangements must be made in advance.
