Stepping through the front door of the “Old House” at Appleton Farms in Ipswich, the longest continually operating farm in America, is a trip back in time. The farm is situated on land managed by the Trustees of Reservations. Inside the 1794 home, in a state-of-the-art kitchen, cooking classes will be held this summer (Trustees members $35-$75; nonmembers $45-$85). Topics include Preserving (June 26), Pasta Making (Aug. 8), and Eggplant Every Way (Aug. 29), with classes culminating in a shared meal. For the “In the Fields and Farm Kitchen” series of 3 classes (June 22, July 27, Aug. 24), students walk through the fields and harvest produce they’ll use later. Farm to table in action. Appleton Farms, Route 1A,
Ipswich, 978-356-5728, or go to www.thetrustees.org and click on Places to Visit.
