About Handmade Hootenanny

Started by Jill (Jill's Homestead), Steph (Something More Co), and Sara (The Holton Homestead)- the event has had a wonderful journey through multiple venues over the past few years. 

In 2021, Handmade Hootenanny is coming to the farm! Hosted by Prudent Produce and The Holton Homestead @ New Family Farm in The Big Oak Barn, this event will bring a stronger emphasis on food while maintaining the local Maker model.
