A New Venture!
We are Barry and Mechel Wall and have lived in NWA for 30 years and raised our family of 8 children here. Our home was never without a garden, a few chickens, rabbits, goats, sheep, cows, pigs and dogs (not all at the same time). We have learned through experience over the years and definitely have our favorites. We love attending Homesteading Conferences to continue building our base of knowledge, and in fact have spent our last two anniversaries attending a great one up in Missouri. We kept hoping someone would plan one here, and instead of waiting, we decided to jump in with both feet. That's the only way I know to do things.
So, it is with great excitement we invite you to the First Annual NWA Homesteading Event planned just for you!

Monday through Thursday will be our "Adult Only Farm School" portion of the event. Tickets are a-la-carte so you only need to sign up and pay for what you will use. Tickets can be purchased through EventBrite: Click Here for Tickets
