Educational programme “Food throughout the year in Estonian farms” at the Farm Museum of C.R. Jakobson

In the museum, which includes an operating farm, we will introduce Estonian food traditions, the effect of seasons on the farm menu, the journey of food from the cowshed and garden to the kitchen, and the principles of C. R. Jakobson in regards to farms and food.

In addition to the food’s journey, visitors can also explore in the Kurgja Farm and talk to its inhabitants.

We will play role plays related to the farm family, taste farm foods, and have a hearty Estonian lunch.
The programme has been recognised with the EHE (Genuine and Interesting Estonia) quality mark, lasts for 2.5 to 3 hours, and is also suitable for children.
