Open Air Farm, Food & Cooking Tour


Join Red Stick Spice Company's owner and chef Anne Milneck along with Lili Courtney for a day-long food and farm adventure that ends in some delectable cooking fun! We will end the day at Pointe Marie Village outdoor kitchen.

We will start the morning at Red Stick Spice with hot tea and hearty breakfast breads. Each student will receive an insulated tote--because you're going to want to purchase lots of goodies for yourself along the way!

Transportation will be via private vehicles.

8:45am: Meet at Red Stick Spice inside the Main Street Market adjacent to the Farmer's Market. We will have pastries and a cup of tea, then it's off to shop! We will visit with Mushroom Maggie, Fullness Farm and many of the other farmers and artisans at the market. The Farmer's Market requires masks and social distancing. 

9:45am: We'll head to Mid City to visit with 3 Tails Wine & Cheese-Baton Rouge's only locally-owned, full service wine and cheese shop. The folks with 3 Tails will greet us on the sidewalk for an open-air presentation. You will then be allowed in the shop in groups per social distancing guidelines.

10:45am: Our favorite butcher is on the schedule! We'll be stopping at Iverstine Farms Butcher to talk pasture-raised chicken, beef and pork. Plus some pretty amazing charcuterie fixings. Iverstine staff will greet us on the sidewalk for an open-air presentation. You will then be allowed in the shop in groups per social distancing guidelines. 

11:45am: Next, we'll head over to Fullness Farm to visit with Grant & Allison Guidroz to hear about the next wave of small farming. This is a must-see farm smack in the middle of Baton Rouge. This is a completely open-air presentation with plenty of room for distancing.

12:45pm: We will end the day at Point Marie Village for a cooking class in their outdoor kitchen. Point Marie is one of Baton Rouge's newest developments with lovely accommodations for groups. We'll be cooking up all our fun finds from our stops. The open air setting at Pointe Marie has plenty of space and seating. 

Tour will be canceled and refunded in the event of heavy rain.
