Did you know that bread and beer were staples in the colonial diet? Or why the early colonists drank beer instead of water?

Join New York Adventure Club as we step back in time at the Wyckoff Farmhouse to enjoy a day of open fire cooking workshops, bread and beer tastings, and tours at NYC’s oldest house.

Our old-timey and farmy experience will include:


  • Tours of the Wyckoff House Museum, New York City’s oldest house (1652)
  • Hands-on, open fire cooking classes with Sarah Lohman, historic gastronomist of Four Pounds Flour, as we make bread two ways (baking and frying) over an outdoor open hearth
  • Learning primal skills like how to tell temperature without a thermometer, how to tell the doneness of food by using your five senses, and how to build a bad-a$$ fire
  • Sampling local beers, and a discussion around how beer served as a staple of the colonial diet
  • Churning butter to spread on your bread
  • Trying your hand at an old-fashioned cider press
  • Working the garden like a real farmer


Your ticket to this unique gathering includes private entry to the Wyckoff House Museum, complimentary bites & brews, a one-hour hands-on cooking lesson with Sarah Lohman, and interactive activities at the farmhouse.


*Please wear natural pants (no polyester) and closed-toed shoes as we will be working closely to an open fire.
