Here at Stonehouse farm we love being healthy and we love to eat. Although we are interested in all aspects of a healthy diet and lifestyle we tend to specialize in fermented foods as we feel the lack of these in the modern diet is the root of numerous contemporary health issues. You will learn that fermented foods as well as being fundamentally good for you can be absolutely delicious. Don’t forget that 75% of our immune system is in our gut.
Cooking fermented food is a lost art in todays modern world. We offer stays at the farm where we incorparate workshops of various aspects of healthy eating including sourdough baking with freshly milled organic wheat grains or making raw probiotic icecream. All our fermentation is done solely with wild yeast and we will teach you why.
We also have a website at healthycountrylife.com where you can check out some interesting recipes and blog posts.
As well as soaking up peaceful rural ambiance of our farm and learning about fermentation in our workshops, we can take you to some of the great nearby attractions. We also offer Yoga and Shibashi classes each morning and a 40 foot magnesium salts lap pool for exercise or to just relax in and free use of our pushbikes.
