Mother Earth News Fair, Seven Springs, PA: We Went!

What a great weekend!  We met 100s of people, talked about our craft, talked about their crafts, and sold honey and maple.  

I arrived at the Fair on Thursday and set up my tent.  

We had a great spot... right on the picnic court area.

And I had some great shows to watch while hanging out in my booth!

Going to the Mother Earth News Fair always increases my desire to do more, be more, on our little homestead.  I watched Joel Salatin (an American farmer, lecturer, and author whose books include Folks, This Ain't Normal; You Can Farm; and Salad Bar Beef) speak and the next thing I knew I was making plans to get into largish scale chicken raising and figuring out where I would put my chicken tractors and how I would feed my chickens with just grass and bugs.  It was a great dream!  

Thankfully, my cooler head prevailed and by the time I got back to my booth I remembered my commitment to doing better at what I'm already doing rather than doing more!  

Dig into this past year's Mother Earth News Fair's Schedule of Events.  Your mind will be blown with the diversity and range of topics covered!  

Sometimes we find ourselves getting worn out and the Mother Earth News Fair is a great way to freshen your desire to pursue the homesteading/natural living/clean eating lifestyle.
