Quilters, cooks, and blacksmiths pursue their work in an encouraging atmosphere while music students fully immerse themselves in old-time classes, their days and nights filled with instruction from master musicians, jam sessions, and an instructor concert. Afternoon mini classes give all participants a chance to take part in learning something totally new. Take a hike, go canoeing, or pick a porch and rocking chair to relax in your free time.

Family Farm to table is a McDowell Farm School and Summer Camp retreat designed for family combinations of all ages. We will have a weekend of fresh air, farm food, and quality time in the beauty of God's Backyard! We will harvest vegetables and feed the farm animals, cut firewood, prepare and share a farm to table meal, learn sustainable practices for home, and so much more. Family Farm to Table Retreat is a beautiful and fun way to reconnect with God’s creation and each other the weekend before Thanksgiving!
