Root Cause Farm, 26 Joe Jenkins Rd, Fairview, NC 28730


About the Event

Let's bake matzah! We’ll supply the oven and ingredients, and guide you through the process. This event is outdoors.

Matzah is an unleavened flatbread that Jews eat during Passover seders (ritual meals) and throughout the holiday of Passover. Each guest will go home with 3 matzah.

Our neighbors at Root Cause Farm have generously allowed us to use their wood fire oven to bake matzahs. You can learn more about Root Cause Farm here.

The recipe will be simply flour and water. We will use flour from local miller Carolina Ground, and water collected from a spring in Fairview, with well water as an alternate option.

This event is outdoors and distanced, but please **bring a mask** in case there are times where we need to be in closer proximity.

All are welcome. This includes families, folks of diverse abilities, and any religious background. Children must be supervised. 


Due to limited oven space, we will have 2 rounds of matzah baking--each with limited spots. You are welcome at any point during the 2 hour event, but will only be baking matzah during your designated time slot. 

Round one: 4-5 pm

Round two: 5-6pm


The pathways and gathering spot are both flat and unpaved. Picnic bench seating will be provided. If you have another type of chair that works for you, feel free to bring it. There are limited accessible parking spots next to our gathering space. Handwashing and a port-o-john bathroom are provided.

Although there will be gluten-free flours available, expect wheat flour on surfaces and the air. 

We will be baking in a wood burning oven without a chimney, so expect smoke. 

Both fresh, unfiltered spring water -- and filtered, tested well water -- will be provided for baking. You can choose either.


Please stay home if you are not feeling well or if you have been exposed to someone with symptoms or who has tested positive for COVID in the past 10 days. We ask that everyone brings their own mask. We will also have surgical masks available. Individuals can choose how close/distanced they are from each other throughout the event.


Please reserve 1 ticket per guest. This event is free, and we welcome donations to support Yesod Farm+Kitchen. If you would otherwise be purchasing matzah at the store, we encourage you to donate at least the amount that you would have spent on machine-made matzah. We encourage BIPOC to sign up for free tickets, and white community members to make a personally meaningful contribution, if you’re able. We also encourage you to join Yesod in making a donation to the Reparations Stakeholder Authority of Asheville (RSAA).
