Mark your calendars for the 2016 conference!

This year's conference will be held the weekend after Labor Day -- Saturday, September 10 -- and we will have homesteading workshops on Sunday, September 11. Both days will be held on Antiquity Oaks Farm, northeast of Cornell, IL and west of Odell, IL, off I-55.

Many thanks to everyone who responded to our survey! We are now working on scheduling classes and workshops. If you have anything in particular you'd like to learn about, leave your suggestions in the comment section.


  1. Had a fantastic time last year!! Can't wait to see what's in store this year!

    1. Thanks, Ellen! If there are any particular subjects you want us to cover, be sure to let us know!

  2. Hello! My family and I just moved our business to Illinois and are looking for ways to connect to others like us. We came across your conference and want to see how we can become involved. Are you interested in having a workshop on how to render cow fat or pig fat for personal use? We do it for our business then use it in our soaps and skincare products. I have tons of experience teaching classes and holding workshops and would LOVE to be a part of the event with you. Please email me if interested at thanks!
