More info on the exciting and educational #homesteading expo during our 117th annual #bentoncountyarfair Thanks to Ozarks Homesteading and UAEX Benton County and all the knowledgeable presenters for making it happen.

They say "You Learn Something New Every Day". Well, you certainly can learn something new every day of the Ozarks Homesteading Expo at the Benton County Fair. For five days we will be doing one in-depth presentation about every two hours. (See schedule on website) There will also be individual demonstrations going on at times including milling lumber, blacksmithing, spinning and weaving, and more. Several vendors will be on hand to supply you with the things you need and resources for your homestead.
This is all happening during the fair so you can also enjoy all of the livestock shows, and the fair exhibits. Come out for a day or two or five. We have some great presenters including a couple of popular YouTube Channel hosts you won't want to miss. See our website for more details.
