The Farm Where You Live Homesteading Fair of the Carolinas 2024 – SC

April 5 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm CDT

$70 – $330

The Farm Where You Live Festival is back! Come out and bring the family on Saturday, April 6th for the Farm Where You Live Homesteading Fair.

You will be able to experience, learn, share, and buy hand-crafted goods from more than 50 market vendors, see your favorite homesteading leaders in their booths, and see live demonstrations of blacksmithing, grain milling, pottery, and even more!

Take advantage of our farmers market area with fresh, local, farm products or browse our rows of local artisans selling their crafts in our market.

Our kid-sized homesteaders will enjoy the fun with face painting, workshops, and classes just for them. We know they will enjoy the live demonstrations happening from local farmers and homesteaders.

Free for ages 10 and under. The Event is from 9AM to 7 PM.

Classes are on Friday, and Event is on Saturday.

“Farm Where You Live Fairs gives you the knowledge and skill to successfully grow and secure your own food supply whether you live in town or the country. From home butchery to home-brew soil amendments, these fair fellowships put you in touch with others in the area who care deeply about similar self-reliance issues and inspire you to carry on in your endeavors.

Any mindful, thinking person today can make a long list of grievances: crime, economic dysfunction, supply chain breakdowns, video and drug addiction, and nutrient deficiency at the supermarket. Food, water, and shelter security form the bedrock of planning for disruptive times. We can either nurse anger and frustration over the way things are, or we can
embrace proactive creative fix-it alternatives. By farming where we live, we can offer hope and help to a society mired in hopelessness and helplessness.

Investing in techniques to flourish when others barely survive beats any retirement plan; it’s even better than buying gold. Mainstream American culture seems oblivious to the problematic trajectory we’re on; Farm Where You Live dares to question the downward spiral and brings us together with upward solutions.

I look forward to seeing you at the fair.”
