My fall schedule is filling up fast, which means that I’ll get the opportunity to meet a lot of you not only in Illinois but also in California and Texas.
Starting this weekend, we’re opening up our farm Antiquity Oaks to the public Saturday and Sunday as part of the Third Annual Livingston County Farm Crawl. It is totally free to stop in, check out the critters and chat with us. You can also buy our goat milk soap, a book, wool products, or some farm-fresh produce.
Next weekend, we are hosting the Third Annual Mid-America Homesteading Conference in Joliet, IL. In addition to me talking about goats and livestock guardians in two separate sessions, my husband Mike will be doing soapmaking and mozzarella making demonstrations, and we have a great line-up of other speakers, including author of Pure Poultry, Victoria Miller, who will talk about canning, living off-grid, and raising poultry. Click on the link for the schedule, list of speakers, and registration information.
In September, I’ll be speaking at the National Heirloom Exposition, so I will finally get a chance to meet some of you who are California.
Throughout the fall, I’ll be doing several classes in cheese making at community colleges in Normal and Oglesby, Illinois, as well as the National Goat Expo in Bloomington, Illinois.
I’ll be heading to Austin, Texas in November to do a half-day workshop on creating value-added products with rare breeds of livestock at the national convention of the Livestock Conservancy (formerly the American Livestock Breed Conservancy).
If you are ever wondering what I’m up to, you can check out the Event page of this website for my speaking and teaching schedule.
