The farm-to-table philosophy comes to vivid and scrumptious life at Appleton Cooks!, the hands-on cooking classes offered at the working Appleton Farms. Workshops, classes, and farm dinners get guests working with delicious local ingredients, sampling beer and cheese, and trying their hand at new culinary skills. A Sunday summer cooking series, where local chefs highlight seasonal ingredients from Appleton and other nearby farms, is the latest addition to the already-impressive Appleton Cooks! lineup.
