Suzanne Upton

Suzanne Upton- Simple Homestead Living- Fermentation; Homestead Herbals; Wild Food Gardening

Suzanne Upton is a North Carolina native homesteader and herbalist.  She grew up in a large family with acres of gardens, harvesting and preserving food as naturally as possible.  She began canning with her mother at seven years old and learned sustainability from ‘mountain folk’ grandparents.  Being among the first generation in her family to be born in a hospital, she grew up with Granny-women who found ways to heal from the plants and remedies of Appalachia. 

 Her homestead now is a happy little mix of chickens, goats, vegetable beds, cold frames, herbs gardens and fruit orchards designed make the most of a sustainable lifestyle.  Over the years she began a serious education into herbalism and nutrition, including foraging wild foods and medicines, fermenting, winemaking, finding nutrition in wild foods, as well as homemade vinegars and herbal remedies. 

 Suzanne’s focus is on healthy, sustainable prepping and wild food survival.  She believes prepping is more than just stocking instant foods in a pantry.  Being able to quickly replace nutritional food in a time of disaster is key.   And making sure that food is healthy, delicious and plentiful as well as frugal is so important in any stressful situation.  She readily passes on her foraging, harvesting and preserving abilities, teaching others about how to find foods, using healthy preservation techniques and maintaining health with diet and herbal remedies.

Nik Davrados – – Reloading Ammunition,

Years ago, Nik Davrados got this wild idea to start buying up reloading supplies from individuals, estate sales, closing gun shops and manufacturers. He then started selling this vast collection using social media. An instant message here, a text message there and he was up and rolling. The more Nik sold, the more he built relationships and started what became the RedEye family and As the business grew he pulled more and more people to help him. Fast forward to today and here we are; Years later, bringing you the best that reloading has to offer! Redeye currently has over 500+ die sets in stock, 25 presses and an array of components new and pulled.

Now he has taken his years of experience as a classroom teacher and created RER Educational Services and where he offers the NRA certified course for basic metallic loading. In development now are course for advanced reloading, long range and casting.

Charlie Rankin

Right to Farm

Charlie worked in the corporate world of Commercial Real Estate for over a decade, specializing in distressed assets.  Throughout his career he represented clients and assisted legal teams in District and Federal Courts as well as raised capital through hedge funds and private equity.

Having grown up spending his summers on his family farm in Vermont, Charlie had a desire to transition back to a simpler lifestyle.  In 2014 Charlie and his wife Shauna purchased a small ranch 50 minutes outside of the Raleigh Metro area where they began building a sustainable future for their family.

Today, Charlie and his wife Shauna operate a company called Yanasa Ama Ventures. The company operates as a niche agricultural real estate, marketing, and videography services provider.  Along side their business, they are creators of a YouTube Channel focused on issues surrounding the Agricultural Community.


Charlie brings a unique perspective to what is going on in the food and farming industries today, and will show you how big industrial agriculture, is tied into the deep state, and that they want to control you, by controlling what you are able to eat, and what you are able to grow.  Dependence on the food grid, makes you dependent on them and the politicians that they pay.
