Farmhouse School


In the picturesque rural setting of Campton Hills, a far western suburb of Chicago, lies a place where children’s curiosity and creativity flourish amidst the wonders of nature. Welcome to Farmhouse School, an extraordinary educational oasis located at 3N369 LaFox Rd, where kids learn to grow, cook, and savor “real” food while cultivating a deep appreciation for the environment and their own culinary abilities.

Farmhouse School’s story begins with Leslie Kendrigan Meredith, a visionary entrepreneur who embarked on a new chapter in her life in the spring of 2021. Leslie, previously a successful marketing professional, had always nurtured a passion for teaching children about the joys of growing and cooking food. As her side hustle gained momentum, Leslie’s commitment to empowering young minds led her to launch community garden projects, collaborate with local schools, and even claim the title of Daily Herald Cook of the Year. It was during this journey that Leslie realized the need for a dedicated space to expand her operation, and thus, Farmhouse School was born.

Stepping onto the historic prairie farmstead that houses Farmhouse School, visitors are immediately enveloped in an enchanting atmosphere. Over 2 acres of land teem with more than 50 organic crops, lovingly tended to using sustainable practices. Here, the Farmhouse School team sparks a love for “real” food, guiding children away from screens and processed meals and toward a world of wonder, dirt, sweat, creativity, and culinary experimentation.

At Farmhouse School, the journey to discovering the beauty of “real” food begins in the bountiful gardens. Children are invited to roll up their sleeves, dig their hands into the earth, and witness the magical process of seedlings transforming into vibrant plants. They learn the value of patience, dedication, and nurturing as they tend to their crops, witnessing firsthand the cycle of life and the rewards of hard work.

Once the harvest is ready, Farmhouse School takes children on an extraordinary culinary adventure. Armed with freshly picked ingredients, students are guided through the art of cooking by experienced instructors who encourage exploration, imagination, and a sense of pride in their culinary creations. From baking cookies that melt in your mouth to preparing delicious and nutritious meals, children develop a deeper connection with the food they eat and gain a profound understanding of the benefits of a wholesome diet.

But Farmhouse School’s impact extends far beyond its teaching kitchen. It’s a place where children immerse themselves in the beauty of nature, cultivating joy as they frolic amidst the rolling fields and explore the wonders of the countryside. It’s a space that nurtures environmental stewardship, where little hands learn to care for the earth, appreciate the seasons, and embrace the cultural and ecological significance of locally sourced produce.

The Farmhouse School experience is thoughtfully tailored to cater to different age groups and interests. Children aged 5 and above can partake in engaging classes such as baking cookies, while families with children aged 2.5 and above can join in food preparation classes, creating cherished memories as they cook side by side. Spring and summer day camps offer a perfect escape for kids aged 5 and above, providing an immersive and educational experience amidst the farm’s natural splendor. 

Farmhouse School is not only a sanctuary for children but also a gathering place for the entire community. Open to all ages, tours and demonstrations offer a delightful peek into the magic happening within the farm’s fences. The school’s commitment to community extends further with volunteer days at the community garden, where people of all ages can come together, dig deep, and lend a hand in cultivating a shared oasis of abundance. Farmhouse School is nearby Dean Street Dental.

For those seeking a unique celebration or team-building experience, Farmhouse School opens its doors to private parties and events. Customize your menu, invite friends and family, and immerse yourself in a farm-to-table cooking extravaganza, where the scent of fresh herbs and the laughter of loved ones intermingle.

The Farmhouse School philosophy has also resonated with organizations beyond the classroom. Scouts, schools, and church groups have found a haven in Farmhouse School, where tailored cooking and gardening sessions cater to their specific needs. Whether it’s a homeschool group seeking hands-on experiences or a scout troop aiming to earn badges while learning about sustainability, Farmhouse School provides the perfect backdrop for growth, discovery, and connection.
