Are Old Hand Tools Still Relevant for the Modern Homestead?

Cody-Wranglerstar

Power tools are a wonderful convenience, but they are expensive and disposable. Old hand tools can last for generations, can often be found for a fraction of the cost, and are as relevant and useful today as they were 100 years ago. Sadly, these old tools are no longer manufactured. Learn what to look for when purchasing old tools and how to care for and restore them.

Speaker Bio

Cody and his family decided to turn their backs on a comfortable city life and become modern day homesteaders. Their adventure takes place in the rugged mountains of the Pacific Northwest, where they document their lifestyle on their YouTube channel Wranglerstar. With more than 300,000 loyal subscribers and 90 million video views, they are leaders in the modern homesteading movement.

Joel Salatin Polyface Farm

Salad Bar Beef

Joel-Salatin-Speaker-Spotlight

Herbivores not only built the world’s deepest and best soil, they provided the foundation for nutrition in most areas. Building soil and eating well are symbiotic activities, but many today view the herbivore as an enemy … a direct result of misusing animals. In this workshop, Joel Salatin introduces the concepts and high-tech infrastructure that allows modern farmers to duplicate the symbiotic choreography of ancient herds. This system also increases yields and offers the most tasty, nutritious food.

Speaker Bio

Joel Salatin’s family owns and operates Polyface Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, producing salad bar beef, pastured poultry, pigaerator pork and forage-based rabbits. The farm services 6,000 families and 50 restaurants. Featured prominently in countless media, documentaries and books, the farm offers many educational opportunities for people wanting to learn these pasture-based systems. He has written 10 books about food and farming, both how-to guides and broad cultural works.
