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.
For 2015, I’m offering both new and familiar retreat opportunities! Choose a one-day, two-day, three-day, four-day, or five-day retreat! TASTE OF SASSAFRAS FARM is a true “taste of Sassafras Farm” touring you through my most popular workshops all in one day. PRIMITIVES & PIONEERS is a full two-day weekend of old-fashioned arts, crafts, and fun with ever-changing workshops for the first-timer at a Sassafras Farm retreat to repeat attendees ready to learn something new and different. CHEESEMAKING, THE FAMILY COW, BAKING, HERBS & SOAP is the full monty–up to five days of the most amazing experience you’ll ever have. Come join us! Open NOW for registration:
