ABOUT NIRMALA’S AGROECOLOGY CENTER
Nirmala’s farm was a working dairy and vibrant rodeo from the 1800s through the 1960s. Five decades later, she has reincarnated the farm to the art of whole living, of an Agroecology destination, apiary, a hands-on learning cooking school, a spice shop, spice suppers, and an Ayurvedic holistic wellness center.
LEARN to CREATE recipes using farm-fresh seasonal produce from our own farm, paired with ingredients from the finest local purveyors, along with spices Nirmala source from small farmers around the world.
