Back to the Land Festival 2022 – TN

September 23, 2022 - September 24, 2022

Back To The Land Festival 2022

THEME: Homestead for a Living

The second Back to the Land Festival is back with a brand new theme! This year, we’ll introduce you to dozens of individuals and families who are making a living from their farm (i.e. professional homesteaders). Through a panel, demonstrations, and personal Q&As, you’ll discover new ideas for how you can practically homestead for a living. The 3-day festival will also include interactive peer discussions, food and entertainment, and a philanthropic service project and class.

We’ll see you at The Amick Farm in Centerville, Tennessee on September 23-24. The 25th will be a community service project at a to be determined location. Stay tuned for a more detailed schedule.

Jordan Goodwin, Axe and Anvil

​​Jordan is Owner and Founder of Axe & Anvil. Jordan does most of the ironwork, correspondence, and social media/writing for Axe & Anvil. Jordan has fallen in love with traditional blacksmithing in a big way. Jordan doesn’t remember when his love of working with his hands started – it’s always been a part of life since he was a small child. Being homeschooled, he found many opportunities to be creative with what was to be found on multi-generational small farm on which he grew up.
