I soooo wish I could enter to win this contest. Organic Valley is offering you the chance to win a culinary scholarship to Quillisascut (Quil-li-sas-cut) Farm School of the Domestic Arts™ or a years worth of Organic Valley products.
After reading the Quillisacut website, I am in LOVE!! I want to visit Rick and Lora Lea Misterly in Rice, WA and devour all the knowledge that they have to give. Besides making absolutely yummy sounding goat cheese, Lora Lea and Rick offer what they call a “Farm School.” This is what their website says:
In 2002 Lora Lea and Rick started the Quillisascut (Quil-li-sas-cut) Farm School of the Domestic Arts™, “We want our farm to be a place where people can learn together, to understand where their food is coming from,” says Lora Lea. The Misterlys’ vision for the farm soon encompassed the larger community of farmers, chefs, restaurateurs, and others who have a place in the farm-to-table continuum. Lora Lea and Rick want to show us the intricate web that links producers and consumers with the land.
The School offers participatory education about where food comes from, changing the way people cook and eat for a better food future. Retreat participants will stay in the farm school, with bunkhouse-style lodging, shared bathrooms and a professional kitchen.
Can you see why I love the sound of this place? As Organic Valley loyal customers you have the chance to win a trip of a lifetime. Organic Valley is even throwing in up to $1000 for travel. Awesome. Wait there is more, for every entry, OV is donating $1.00 to the Heifer International’s More Organic for Everyone program. So it doesn’t hurt to enter several times.
It would be neat if one of our blog readers won this trip. If you do, you will need to take lots of pictures and tell me all about it! Even though I cannot win the trip, I can ask for their new cookbook “Chefs on the Farm”for Christmas. Hint, Hint.
