About Christine Currie
We like to extend the offer to host more Farm to Fork events highlighting locally grown music, food, and Artisans of all stripe.
Art Farm Fennville follows closely on the heels of the neighboring Ox-Bow School of Art, a local fixture for over one hundred years offers a source of artist-educators-artisans that are the local creative community.
Community can take many forms, curiosity and exploration within the creative process is my goal. The pastoral setting @artfarmfennville is ideal for artistic workshops held in a converted barn and around the beautiful ponds and sculpture garden.
The Artisan Roasted Coffee Educational Workshops help democratize the magic of great coffee.
Artisan Coffee is roasted on-site weekly in the new Chicken Coop Cupping Workshop. Coffee Education with a beautiful vista of pond, art and workshop space. There's a rustic writer retreat Cabin available, booked through hipcamp.
We’ve offered hands-on learning experiences for all ages. Foraging Workshops. Plein-Air Painting.
