Workshops Galore! Two solid days of numerous topics. We couldn't get to all we were interested in but it did help to have DH along so we could split up for more coverage.
I started out with a cheese making and raw milk class...
|serious note taking!|
...while DH hit up the bee keeping workshops.
Homesteaders Galore! Seats filled up fast...
especially for the more "famous" speakers.

Books Galore! Mother Earth News provided an excellent selection of books. Unfortunately they were sold out of our intended purchases when we finally got a chance to shop in the bookstore.
If there is a fair in Topeka next year and you are thinking about going, I highly recommend staying at the Ramada Inn downtown. I've stayed there the last two years and found it to be very accommodating. It's a very short drive to the Expocentre (free parking.) They serve an excellent breakfast included in the room price. And there is a neat little military museum inside to explore- if you're not too exhausted from the fair!
