The late Joe Dupere, founding member of Farm & Homestead Day, used to say that not long ago, the average person needed to know more practical skills to get through a single day than most people now learn in a lifetime. He and the original rabble (planning team) envisioned a hands-on, experiential event where people from all walks of life could share and learn new skills.

In 2019 Farm and Homestead Day at MOFGA will celebrate its eighth year, and we are proud that it will stay true to the original vision of a free, noncommercial, volunteer-run event. It is impressive and heartening to see so many people eager to share their knowledge and skills without monetary compensation. Together we recognize that sharing goods and services makes life more joyful and meaningful.

As Nancy Rosalie says, “Farm & Homestead Day at MOFGA is a joyful event. Witness the smiles; the proud bearing of accomplishment; the spontaneous music, song and dance!”
