Come to the Backyard Farming Fall Workshop!

Come to Cold Antler Farm this Fall for a Backyard Farming Workshop! It'll be held mid-October, Sunday the 16th, at the peak of Hudson Valley foliage, and should make for an amazing weekend of farming, fall leaves, and local sight-seeing. I'm announcing it early so folks who want to make reservations up here can (all hotels and B&Bs sell out by late summer). This workshop will not focus on any one thing in great detail, but cover what can be done in small spaces with backyard livestock, gardens, rain water collecting, canning (we'll make pasta sauce or jam and send you home with some!), and many other topics for home-food production. Everyone who comes will get a copy of Carleen Madigan's Backyard Homestead, and have time to enjoy the farm's food, music, and animals. We might just butcher a turkey and drink some home brewed Black Dog Stout, too!

Please email me if you would like details to attend.
Sign up soon! Limited to 15 people!

Wow! Would I love that. Distance(Gastonia, North Carolina) makes it a little hard. Now if I could convince my Charlottesville, Va girls to attend. . . . .huuummmm.

Sounds like another 'Don't miss it!' weekend if you're close enough - I know it will be an eye opener as to the beauty of upstate New York.

Count me in for this one! Sounds like so much fun! Not to mention that fall is my most favorite time. What will the cost be?

How do we get added to your mailing list to be kept up to date on upcoming workshops?

P.S. I think there will be a full timber management program done by Brett, with log skidding ala Jasper!
