Each spring Millstone Farm offers a variety of workshops to help educate and empower us to grow and preserve our own food and learn homesteading skills like beekeeping and chicken keeping. This spring mushroom growing, raising chickens, and beekeeping for beginners are schedule for May. If you are interested, I encourage you to sign up soon before they fill up.
Austin and Kendra Martin, the husband and wife team who run Squash Hollow Farm in New Milford, have organized a fun and educational day of events and live demonstrations for the public to enjoy on Open Farm Day. Save the date for Saturday, May 25, when you are invited to visit this 10-acre farm which grows vegetables and raises chickens, pigs, goats, guinea hens, and turkeys. Please refer to the flyer for a list of the day’s events. More coming!
