The Stivers Homestead:

 Working together with our agricultural partners, the Appalachian Fair is pleased to announce special appearances by Zach and Jenn Stivers from The Stivers' Homestead.

The Stivers are a young family that had a dream of establishing a sustainable yet functioning family homestead.  Through hard work and a desire to succeed, those dreams, turned realities are brought to life through their immensely popular YouTube creation, "The Stivers' Homestead".

Zach and Jenn will be presenting their journey, through the homesteading adventure, on the stage of the Farm & Home Building on Friday, August 27th at 6:30pm and again on Saturday, August 28th at 11am & 5:30pm.  They will be available to answer questions and spend some time with their fans.

So please join us in welcoming the Stivers' to the 95th Appalachian Fair.
