Workshop Session: Saturday II

Save yourself time and money by repurposing materials and equipment on your farm. We’ll share tried-and-true tips and tricks for creating tools, livestock shelters, and more, and show pictures of hacks that work and a few that didn’t. We’ll also help you decide when it’s better to buy new and when it makes sense to salvage, invent, or fix up what you already own.

Daniel Zetah owns New Story Farm in Minnesota. He has worked a variety of jobs, picking up skills such as welding, fabricating, building, and fixing everything.
