Sharing the Cornerstones of homesteading and good farm living.

Basic Seminar and Farm Tour

Pictures

Testimonials 

Our basic seminar includes an informational farm tour which lasts about 2 hours depending on the group size and amount of questions we field at each stop on the farm.  Also included if required will be an intensive question and answer session after the tour.  Each adult participant will receive a wonderful versatile potted Comfrey plant to take home.  

We will touch base on the natural raising of goats, pigs, bees, poultry and rabbits.  Included in those discussions will be livestock protection, making hay and fencing options. The plant portion will include, small acreage gardening, soil care/amendments, planting low maintenance high producing plants and some herbal information.
