Salt Water Farm is a recreational cooking school and farm located on the coast in Lincolnville, Maine. Windward House is centrally located for you to enjoy both the farm and the vibrant downtown of Camden.
The Salt Water Farm cooking classes explore fundamental skills in the kitchen and garden, emphasizing the pleasure that comes from harvesting food from your own backyard. Students are guided through simple knife and butchery techniques, cooking over a wood fire, and foraging for wild edibles along Maine’s rich seashore. All classes end in a communal feast around our farmhouse table.
The cooking school resides in an antique post & beam barn at the foot of the Camden Hills. The kitchen is fully equipped with a wood-burning brick oven, an open hearth for spit roasting and state-of-the-art appliances. An outdoor kitchen provides a wood burning grill, lobster burners, and a smoker for meat and fish. A cascading vegetable garden with more than 100 seed varieties runs through the fields, providing stock for the kitchen. A chicken coup beside the barn houses 12 laying hens, and beside it is a bee hive, laden with honey.
