With the pig roast, Holler Roast Kickstarter, and sudden influx of awesome visitors who descended and started knocking out our new coffee roasting room, I missed it!
Today, we will go over the third canning project just in time for Tennessee Berry Picking Season: How to make and can jam, and I will give you all an update on the Holler Roast Project.

An update on Holler Roast.
Check out some of the videos we are making over on YouTube – Ive set up a playlist called “Coffee Manic” where I will be documenting the mobile roaster unit progress, as well as other coffee related things, including the process for this year’s tasting.
Starting, and growing a business is some of the most exciting energy to be involved with. And this spring is not disappointing. And somehow, we got our garden planted, albeit a bit behind schedule. This episode isn’t really about homestead life, it is more about lifestyle design of a homesteader. Thanks for listening and Make it a great week!
