November 10-11 - Homesteaders of America Women’s Event

Are you ready for an inspirational and educational weekend with fellow women homesteaders from across the country (and beyond)? The second annual HOA Homesteader Women’s Retreat weekend is taking place this November at Polyface Farm in Swoope, VA! Imagine with us, a women’s only event at Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farm in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley in the fall—in one of his warm, beautiful hoop houses. It’s going to be grand, ladies!

This event isn’t like our big annual conference. With only 250 tickets (TOTAL!) available, this intimate event will have you walking away feeling inspired, rejuvenated, and encouraged as a woman homesteader. From faith and family, to learning how to roll-up poultry netting like a girl—we’ve got you covered.

Come and enjoy breakfast (with a VIP ticket) and lunch (for all attendees) straight from the farm at Polyface. Connect with like-minded women, mothers, grandmothers, entrepreneurs, farmers, old and young, single and married homesteaders.

This event will sell out! Click HERE for more info and to grab your tickets!
