Mountain Farm & Feed Demo and Book Signing

As homesteaders for nearly two decades we have spent our fair share of time and money at farm and feed stores. They are more than the products on their shelves - the good ones are a rich source of knowledge about just about anything facing your small holding. The people at Mountain Farm & Feed have been strong supporters of the fermentation revival and our books and its a pleasure to get a chance to share what we know.
