My Aunt Susan taught me to make Southern Sourdough Bread years ago and I want to share that wonderful life skill with you.  This sourdough recipe has a sweet, savory (even comforting) taste that will have your friends and family begging for more!  This life skill can be passed on to future generations...a great way to leave a meaningful legacy.

I've been teaching my Sourdough Bread and Cinnamon Rolls Class in person for 7+ years at our farm in Franklin, Tennessee and selling the products in our own farm store.  I've had numerous requests for an online program that could reach others who live too far from our farm to attend an in-person class.  

My new online course is geared specifically for those individuals who want to learn how to make their own homemade sourdough bread and cinnamon rolls, and need a curriculum that fits their schedule.  It is also for those people who would like to make extra income with a sourdough 'side-hustle' or full time business.
