Food store has a few items from here and some from other local concerns. The General Store has a hardware store items and a lot of metal... More

Great place to take the kids to learn how life was a couple of hundred years ago! Interesting to stop to consider the lifestyle of this community, the work they do, the attention to detail and their commitment to each other. It was so refreshing to have people so genuinely interested in sharing their fine woodworking skills, pottery, products from... More

We had breakfast in the cafe and the food, service and atmosphere was great. Be sure to go into the shops in the community while you are there. This is a really special place to visit in a picturesque area.

The cafe was a great way to end our visit. We even enjoyed a very lengthy and nice discussion with one of the local guys. I... More

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

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...
