Back to the Basics….
Small Business Skills | Homesteading | Energy | Food | Heritage Skills | Personal Growth
Join the LFTN Community at Nicole Sauce’s homestead, The Holler Homestead, for three days of learning, fellowship, and homegrown food.
This year, we will focus on forgotten skills like forging, developing water on your land when you do not have a spring. We will also cover strategies for growing your online presence, getting your financial ducks in a row, food independence, and so much more.
Your three day adventure includes food grown at the Holler Homestead or sourced from the LFTN community (as much as possible). Why have a weekend dedicated to homesteading, real food, off grid living, and personal growth but feed people commercial crap? We will not do this!
As always, there are the barter blanket; the side meetings with new friends and experts; swag to purchase; late-night karaoke; and, well, too much to think of all at once.
We’ll meet in a heated and cooled basement structure and work on the projects outside, in the fresh air. There will be concurrent sessions, which will present you with decisions about where to devote your time. This year we will CONNECT with each other and CREATE pathways to communicate, trade, and refine our underground network.
In short, this still ain’t your Daddy’s homesteading workshop!
- Session facilitators eager to help you well beyond their presentations

What is your cancellation policy
Your deposit is refundable for one week – and nonrefundable after that and it holds your spot.
Can I bring my dog?
No. We have livestock and working dogs. Your dog is not safe here – nor would mine be. 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 by pouring water into the electronics. I’m fairly traumatized over that.
