Modern Homesteading: Why Everyone Makes Everything

What do resourceful survivalists, beer connoisseurs, creative omnivores, vegans, naturalists, microbiome enthusiasts and millenials aspiring to become foodborne entrepreneurs have in common?

All these disparate groups of people are trying to do the same thing: make everything.

In this session, we will explore the rising movement toward self-sufficiency in an era when any cuisine is available with ever-increasing convenience.

Erica & Stephen will pull from their experience running Brooklyn Brew Shop and FarmSteady, where they've revolutionized DIY beer and food kits. As leaders in the DIY food industry, they'll bring unique insight to a discussion of its future.
