Registration now open!

The schedule is finalized, and registration is now open! We have sessions on gardening, composting, canning, grassfed beef, the home dairy, pastured pork, fencing, meat goats, and even how to turn your homesteading passion into a business! You'll get six full hours of instructions plus lunch for only $75 if you register by July 31, although our space is limited to only 90 people, so you don't want to wait too long. If space is still available after August 1, registration will be $89.

FAMACHA training is also being offered for those who raise sheep and goats, so that you can learn more about internal parasites and how to avoid the use of dewormers unless absolutely necessary. The FAMACHA training costs an additional $25.

We also have a post conference workshop on Sunday from 8:30 to 5:00 for those of you who are interested in producing your own dairy products with a small herd of dairy goats. You'll learn the basics of goat care, housing, fencing, breeding, and birthing, as well as how to raise kids. And you'll learn how to make several dairy products, as well as goat milk soap. The workshop is held at Antiquity Oaks Farm, which is a little less than an hour south of the college where the conference is being held. The goat workshop is $75.

Registration fees are refundable if cancellation is received by July 15. No refunds will be issued on cancellations after July 15.
