Farmstead Flatbread is a farm-based collaborative featuring an outdoor kitchen and workshop space for homesteading/survivalism classes
Farmstead Flatbread is a farm-to-table collaboration between a baking operation and Elephant in the Field, a community-based farm and education center, tucked between the foothills of Hunger Mountain in Waterbury, Vermont. Elephant in the Field is a platform for sustainable land-based enterprise and features a working, diversified vegetable farm, small goat and chicken operation, early education center, and a workshop and community event site. Our Kickstarter project is seeking funds to build an open-air structure that houses an earth oven for community baking, cooking classes for youth, a large workshop table for homesteading and survivalism classes, and a small farmstand. Farmstead Flatbread’s mission is to explore alternative farming models that help restore the land, enrich the local community and serve as a model for others to do the same. With so many of our food and economic systems failing to provide for the people and for the land honestly and sustainably, it is time to create these types of alternative infrastructure projects that have the ability stimulate discussion, educate the community and create local action.
Why flatbread? It’s a common food with universal appeal, made in one form or another by nearly every culture in the world. It can either compliment or directly utilize inputs from any localized food system, and because it’s so darn tasty it’s a great way to bring folks to the table. Each week, the project will will host a “Flatbread Friday” event to highlight seasonal farmed and foraged inputs, discuss new ideas and collaborate with other food producer in the area. During the rest of the week the structure will be used for classes, community events, baking sessions, live music and other activities.
