Welcome to Farmhouse Kitchen, where you will get a Real Food Experience.

Pauline created Farmhouse Kitchen 10 years ago, her world revolves around food. She and Chris have extensive gardens and share the land with the chickens, cows, dog, cats and a pet rabbit.

Pauline love’s sharing her practical skills helping you to learn the basics from scratch to get you confident to make, share and enjoy delicious food together!

“It was just the right mix of socialising, doing, learning something new together and having fun. Pauline prepared and worked with us in a magnificent way, which meant that we were able to be relaxed and challenged just a bit.”
