Workshops that Work for You

You are busy; between work, family, extracurriculars it’s not always easy to escape to try a new class, workshop, or learning experience. We know that time away needs to be purposeful, worthwhile and social. One might see some subtle barriers here: you need a time that works for you, you need a workshop that offers content of interest and ideally, you would like to be able to add a social component, an opportunity to catch up with you friends who are leading equally busy lives. We understand the struggle. One set workshop doesn’t work for everyone so we are thrilled to announce our “workshops that work for you” initiative! Below you will find a PDF outlining five workshop experiences that you can choose from including: Farmhouse Cooking, Flower Arranging, Honey in the Kitchen, Tasting in the Silo, and Limb Trimming with a Purpose ( our version of Axe Throwing). Gather at least eight of your closest friends together and join us for flexible and personalized workshop experiences at the farm. No longer do you have to wait for your favourite program to pop up, no longer do you have to worry about double booking, no longer do you have to worry about clashing schedules; simply put, you book a workshop that interests you, on a date that works for you. It doesn’t get much easier that that! If you are looking to book a workshop please contact Christine at

About Danielle

Looking for a simpler way of life for her four daughters and herself, Danielle moved from Toronto to this farm in the Bethany Hills of Southern Ontario, and over time together with her family and her partner Shawn, restored the barn, the iconic heritage silo and the land.

Danielle loves to create unique settings and menus for the many events she offers at South Pond Farms, such as authentic farm-to-table gatherings, bread-making workshops, culinary classes, and weddings. Danielle’s vision is to inspire others to share her vision of a traditional life and way of cooking and to feel the sense of history on this beautiful land.  

Danielle was also the host of a television series called Taste of the Country
