A Taste Of Culture At Three Pines Farm (Northeast Iowa Travel)


When I ventured to an old barn in the countryside of northeast Iowa this summer, I wasn’t sure what to expect. My sister, Amy, and I were headed to a cooking class at Three Pines Farm in Cedar Falls. I do not consider myself a cook in the least, so I was glad to be going with my foodie sister! This class was all about Iranian foods, one class in a tasty series called Global Plates.

We grew up in the countryside of this part of the state, where the rolling hills and fertile farmland stretch on as far as you can see. When we turned into the drive of Three Pines Farm, I could tell the place was special. Our class (and many classes and events throughout the year) took place inside one of the old barns that have been renovated into a beautiful kitchen and creative space. It was such a neat use for an old barn!

We had such an amazing time at Three Pines Farm! I love learning new things and hands-on workshops are such a fun experience to do with friends.

I’m excited to be sharing all about our travels to Three Pines Farm over at TravelIowa.com as part of their Made In Iowa series! This partnership with the Iowa Tourism Office was a great chance to get out and explore something new in our state.

Iowa really is more than cornfields, and you will discover all sorts of amazing things to experience and eat at TravelIowa.com. Head here to read my post about our visit to Three Pines Farm.

Enjoy your day!
