Small Business Skills | Homesteading | Energy | Food | Hard Skills | Personal Growth
Join us at the Holler Homestead as we spend three days learning homesteading arts…business development… food management… practical solar energy… specific skill sessions… and fun!
This year, we will start by processing a pig that will then be roasted for dinner on day two. Sessions will focus on personal and self improvement, developing energy and food independence. Many demos of “practical skills” like milling wood, welding, knife care, installing fencing, and more will be highlighted throughout the event. As always, there are the barter blanket, the side meetings with new friends and experts, swag, late-night karaoke, and too much to think of all at once.
We’ll meet in a heated and cooled basement structure. Concurrent sessions might happen which will present you with a choice of where to devote your time. We’ve changed the side-hustle accelerators to a speed-dating style approach, so we can all pitch in to help more people get their good ideas on the road.
In short, this ain’t your Daddy’s homesteading workshop! It’s all up to date.

What is your cancellation policy
Your deposit is nonrefundable and it holds your spot.
Can I bring my dog?
No. We have livestock and a grumpy old protective dog. Your dog is not safe here – nor is mine. Either way, we simply can’t have other people’s dogs on the property.
What about bringing children?
This workshop is not appropriate for children under 14. The property is not designed for the safety of small children unless they are constantly supervised. You’re not going to want to do that.
Alcoholic beverages will be consumed at this event, probably some foul language and so forth, so make sure you are comfortable with your teen being around this group if you choose to bring them.
Last time we allowed children at an event, they broke some really expensive stuff, including my coffee roaster, so no children.
