Living on a Few Acres is a webinar series developed for the beginning producer or homesteader who is looking to become more self-sufficient or take the first step in producing a product. These two-hour programs are designed to explain the very basic information on how to get started but provide resources with more advanced information as you continue pursuing your goal or hobby. In 2023, Living on a Few Acres will be split into a spring and fall series. Topics in the spring included beekeeping, syrup making, soil fertility, vegetable gardening, tree and small fruit production, home food preservation, backyard greenhouses and hydroponic production. In the fall, we are returning to discuss animal husbandry and home butchering.
