Charlotte Pike started work on Field & Fork School in 2015 to create a completely new kind of practical food education. We aim to create an immersive, transformative experience for everyone who visits us. We want to change lives through food, and we operate as a social enterprise. We want to inspire and provoke thought, and share knowledge and ideas. We offer something completely new, different and inclusive and we are working towards building a permanent home for our work.
What is Field & Fork School?
We run classes designed to offer you the skills you need to get cooking fantastic, fresh and frugal food from scratch for you and your family at a fair and accessible price. We introduce participants to fantastic ingredients, and explore the origins of our food, whilst think about food sourcing and sustainability in a fun and creative way.
