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.
Squash Hollow Farm raises Cornish X and heritage breed chickens for meat and is holding a Raising Meat Chickens course at the farm on April 27 at 10 am.This is not for the meek or faint of heart: as part of the course you will be processing your own chicken and taking it home for dinner. It’s for the burgeoning number of farmsteaders who want to learn to be more self reliant.
