Preservation station is an enclosed mobile cargo trailer that unpacks into a high-efficiency, three-season food preservation kitchen and workshop space. Staffed by a canning expert, the trailer can be pulled onto farms, community gardens, farm markets or your own backyard at the peak of produce ripeness.
We we host private parties in your yard or at your farm for 6 to 12. Contact us to make reservations for the 2016 season.
