Picklin’ Okra

August 22, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Learn some old-school pickling skills with a real Southern cook. Join Gloria Farm — she’ll lead and demonstrate while you prep your own pickles.  While they’re cooking, enjoy  handsome young, hip, British  Chris Smith, author of the brand new book The Whole Okra.

Chris grows over 70 varieties of okra.  70.  Yes. 70.  And he makes okra infused vodka, which is pink. Pink. We’ll all get to sample it. 

He’ll also have fresh bulk okra to sell, so you can take home plenty to teach your family how to pickle okra too!

We’ll focus on using okra for food and fun — it’ll be hot and we’ll mostly be inside.  But we’ll also do a lily farm tour — and if you want, pick okra from the farm.  Bring long sleeves for this part!

We have a full afternoon planned for you with light snacks recipes and all things okra.  Then a very personalized tour of the farm including the new classroom built into our 1900’s barn.
