Folks from Alaska to Florida learn to butcher chickens

 

Jackie travels all over the country giving workshops on gardening, growing fruit trees, raising chickens and livestock, canning and food preservation, but in 2013 we decided to invite people here for a more extended learning experience and see how we do things first hand.

Every year we offer seminars where folks can come from all over the country to participate in hands-on workshops over a three day weekend.  Some popular workshops have included canning, seed saving, building, self-reliant living on a shoe string, cheesemaking, long-term food storage, butchering chickens, raising livestock and helpful homestead tools.

Here’s a cheesemaking workshop

We offer camping spots for tents and RVs right on our land or you can stay in any of the lodges or motels in the area.  Offering a huge homemade lunch every day plus a weenie roast on Saturday nights, you’ll never leave hungry!!

Cost for the entire intense three days runs $400 per person or $350 per person if two or more people come together with $100 in advance to lock in your slot. These seminars may well change your life!  We only accept about 15 people so that everyone gets a very personal experience.  Included is one of Jackie’s books, autographed if you’d like…and a big meal each of the three days.
