This small village is interesting and informative. I visited for a few hours and thought I could have spent longer. The small shops were full of hand made items - somewhat pricey, but high quality. The café uses locally produced food that is delicious. My favorite part was the woodworking shop. They teach classes on how to build your own... More

Our daughter and son-in-law recently hosted about 20 of us to a late breakfast here this past Saturday morning. Never been there before. Amazing. I cannot tell you how pleasant our visit was. Food was as good as it gets. However, I was taken back by the incredible surprise we all received with this experience. We discovered that HH is... More

This was the second time to visit. There have been some additions to the homestead since my last visit about 10 years ago. I find this place to be interesting. The people are friendly and always willing to answer questions about what they are working on or general questions about the operations at the homestead. We also stopped at the... More

We enjoyed the day we spent here walking thru the shops and looking around. The place is very clean and neat. We enjoyed the ride on the wagon drawn by horses. The food in the Cafe was delicious. I enjoyed shopping and had several items shipped home to me. I am anxious to see about having a custom made quilt... More

We visited during thanksgiving weekend festival. It was well and beautifully organized . All based on the community lifestyle and values . They make everything on their own and you get to see them do it starting with making flour, through interactions and explanations on horses , sheep, chickens and all the farm animals ending with lots of creative station...

This venue was a short 10 minute drive from downtown Waco, TX. We watch the free 14-minute film on this 550 acre religious community, walked through some of the shops and watched some of the craft demonstrations. Food items were reasonably priced buy many of the craft items were pricey, though of high quality. We initially thought about bringing our... More

My daughter goes to Antioch Discipleship school in Waco, Texas and a friend and I came for a visit. She kept talking about the great cheese from a place called Homestead Heritage - a small village of shops a few minutes outside of town. So we went and the place was just beautiful. If you've ever been to Williamsburg, VA... More

Interesting place, good living history, and delightful people. This is a good place to bring children for them to see not only how life once was lived, but is now lived by choice by the 1000 families still there. The community has an interesting history as well as shops and demonstrations. I would love to take the cheese making and... More

The people there live in a culture long past. They weave their own goods, do beautiful woodworks, grow their food, they have a metal/iron works shop, a bakery, a grist mill, etc. The children are home schooled. you can walk the village and enjoy the ambiance. The cafe is excellent. There is a cheeze shop. You can take classes to... More

I could say a lot about the class not being in depth enough but considering it was only 3 days and we covered so much ground it was a great class that gave me an idea of where i need to spend some more time learning. An excellent class with very good teachers.
