You asked for it! Our first homesteading seminar! — 6 Comments

  1. Hello Jackie, We were so excited to hear about your upcoming seminar in August. We would love to come! Please forward us the info we’ll need to attend.
    We look forward to meeting you and learning alot!
    Right now we raise chickens and rabbits and are learning ways of self reliance. Its been fun and challenging!
    Thanks Much!
    Marilyn & Jon from Iowa

  2. Beverly,

    We slaughter pigs at about 275#. The two gilts will be bred because we had such a hard time finding a barrow pig to raise to butcher. We’ll sell the extra weaner pigs to help pay for the feed for the rest.


  3. At what age, or size, do you slaughter your pigs….or, will you breed them? NICE PEN!!!

  4. Sue,
    If you would like to come to the seminar, just send an e-mail to me via BHM and I’ll send you a flyer with all the information. This is a first come, first served basis. I don’t want you to be disappointed. It’d be great if you could come!


  5. The seminar sounds fantastic Jackie, and is very gracious of you and Will, considering how busy you guys stay. I wish the best for you and all that can attend.

    Thank you for the photos of your pigs in their new “home”. They look great, and must enjoy all of the space to move about. :)

  6. Jackie and Will,
    Thank you for offering Homesteading Seminars. We look forward to attending one. Our first summer and canning season on our new place was successful. I have more green tomatoes, put up in various forms, than canned red tomatoes, but we’ll do better next year. Thank you for sharing your experiences and wisdom so that us newbies can have a mentor, even if it is long distance.
    Thank you, Sue
