What is Homesteading?

Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. It is characterized by subsistence agriculture, home preservation of foodstuffs, and it may or may not also involve the small scale production of textiles, clothing, and craftwork for household use or sale.

Some stats: The first event was in October of 2009, about 12 people and the last one was on Saturday. We grew to over 5000 people in the peak years (before Covid) and 200+ vendors. We have had 33 events in those 14 years - WHEW! There were only 2 years without events, 2020 and 2021.
