Seven Springs Speaker Spotlight: Deborah Niemann, Home Dairy and Homegrown Food Enthusiast

| 8/3/2011 8:41:27 AM

 Get to know Deborah Niemann of Antiquity Oaks. 

What are you going to speak about at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR? 

Deborah NiemannI have two sessions: one on The Natural Home Dairy and the other on Why Homegrown and Handmade.

I got the idea for the first session because I receive a lot of emails from people who visit my goat website and are surprised that we allow our moms and babies to stay together, so the babies can nurse. People have expressed surprise that it is even possible to share milk with babies, while other people have asked if I have any trouble selling my goat kids since so many people think that kids and calves have to be bottlefed. So, in this session I'll talk about why we let our cows and goats raise their babies, as well as how we milk and make our own dairy products.

My other session is based upon the introduction to my book, Homegrown and Handmade, which talks about all of the benefits of growing your own food and making food from scratch: health, safety, ethics in factory farming, personal pride, and so on.

What are you most looking forward to sharing with FAIR attendees?
