Larder n (ˈlär-dər) — a place used to store food; a pantry; a supply of food

Here in the Portland Metro area, we are blessed with a climate that allows us to grow an incredible variety of fruits and vegetables. Although nothing beats fresh, in-season produce, preserving an abundant harvest for long-term storage can be a healthy and satisfying way to capture those bright seasonal flavors and prevent food waste.

Whether you shop the farmers market, forage in U-pick fields, tend a hearty home garden, or have a single prolific fruit tree, that fresh produce can be transformed into something that will continue to nourish you throughout the year. The Lucky Larder can help with education about custom, small-batch, fruit and vegetable preservation. You can take a group class, get one-on-one instruction, host a preservation party, and find individual support for your preservation projects. Contact us directly for more information about how we can help.

We are excited to announce that Lucky Larder will be moving into our own brick and mortar space in 2022! Due to the move, we don’t have many group classes on the calendar this summer (see the Events tab for opportunities), but we are still available for private lessons.
