Located on a picturesque 10-acre property in historic Concord, MA, Saltbox Farm is a working farm and home to The Little House, a unique farm-based cooking school. Built in the 1940s, Saltbox Farm was owned by Chef Ben Elliott’s grandparents until 2004, when he and his wife Julia moved to the farm to continue the family tradition, raise their own young family and to restore the farm. Today, we grow a wide variety of vegetables, raise sheep, keep chickens for eggs, bees for honey, and have recently planted a small orchard that includes apples, peaches, pears and cherries. Learn more about the range of what is grown on the farm.
Through The Little House, Saltbox Farm’s cooking school led by Chef Aaron Furmanek, we offer a unique opportunity for home cooks and food enthusiasts to get hands-on instruction to learn new techniques and recipes that they can use at home. During the growing season, our menus feature ingredients from the garden. Recent classes have included Whole Pig Butchery, World Cuisines: Andalusia, Spain, Seafood Cookery, Pasta Making and Ramen. Class offerings change monthly and offer a variety of topics to appeal to even the most experienced home cook.
