Speaker Bio

Deborah Niemann is a homesteader, writer and self-sufficiency expert. In 2002, she relocated her family from the suburbs of Chicago to a 32-acre parcel on a creek "in the middle of nowhere." Together, they built their own home and began growing the majority of their own food. Sheep, pigs, cattle, goats, chickens and turkeys supply meat, eggs and dairy products, while an organic garden and orchard provides fruit and vegetables. A highly sought-after speaker and workshop leader, Niemann presents extensively on topics including soap making, bread baking, cheesemaking, composting and homeschooling. She is the author of Homegrown and Handmade, Ecothrifty, and Raising Goats Naturally.
