Educational events at the farm are geared to smaller groups in an intimate atmosphere.
Retreats and workshops take place at Sassafras Farm– home of Chickens in the Road–located in Roane County, West Virginia.
Learn old-time skills and fresh, new methods with in-person mentorship, in-depth and hands-on. Take home fun and functional know-how for self-sufficient living and old-fashioned crafting–and take home what you make, too.
2013 brings smaller, more intimate retreats–through the spring, summer, and fall with lots of options to suit your schedule, budget, and interests.

Accommodations are not included for retreats or one-day workshops. If coming from out of town, find nearby Suggested Accommodations here.
One-day workshops are periodically scheduled (check this page for upcoming dates), but may also be scheduled upon request. If requesting a workshop day, choose two workshops from cheesemaking, soapmaking, preserving, candlemaking, and breadbaking. All supplies are included. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Workshops at the farm are available for all ages for groups of 2 to 12 participants. Attendees under 18 years old must be accompanied by a paid attendee parent or guardian. The cost is $110 per attendee for the full day, including meals, supplies, farm tour, and workshops. If you request a workshop, I may open the day for other attendees if your group numbers less than 6. If you want a private workshop for a number less than 6, an extra charge of $25 per attendee is required.
See you at the farm!
