    In 2023, after several years of farming and evolving in homesteading and self-sufficiency, I began teaching on-farm workshops. The most popular being one titled "Raising Backyard Pigs". It is so jam packed with information, a lengthy Q&A, and visuals that dozens of homesteaders got the confidence they needed to start raising their own pork!

    In January of 2024, we made a big move from Maryland to Virginia. We'll resume on-farm workshops later this year, but in the meantime, we've been asked (many times over) to make our on-farm workshops available online. With a background in marketing and specialized training in creating online courses, this was an easy YES! I AM SO EXCITED to make this a reality in early spring of this year.

    Drafting and filming is underway so please drop your info here and I'll be sure to let you know when this class and others are ready!
