I just wish I had dug a little deeper. I agree with going back to your roots and living simply and learning how to do this. We walked the grounds and through the very few exhibits then to the cafe forvat sandwich and phone checking. I wanted to know more about the people so started reading different materials I found...

We visited Homestead Heritage during their Labor Day festival. The people are kind and eager to share more about their skills and way of life. The food at the festival was fantastic - all homegrown. Plenty of activities for the whole family. My 6 and 10 year old loved it. My wife found lots of great organic groceries and crafts.... More

The other day my family and I decided to travel out to Homestead Heritage to spend the morning. We took our own picnic supplies and found a picnic table under some trees near the parking lot. After our picnic, we visited the various workshops on their campus. There is a lot to see and do, and the workers do not... More

We visited Homestead Heritage on our way from Dallas to Austin on 4th July - planed just a short stop in the half way to let the kids (3 and 6) to walk around a bit. We ended up spending several hours and wishing we would have more time. We all enjoyed demonstrations at the pottery shop - a beautiful... More

My entire family visited Homestead Heritage in early May. The land is very well kept up; everything is very clean. The restaurant is delicious, with homemade sandwiches, fries, and pies. The shops are very nice, but expensive. We spent about 2 hours touring the land, and then ate at the restaurant. I will definitely go back again!

If you're looking for a quiet, refreshing couple of hours and perhaps a comforting meal, this is the place to visit. I was inspired by this community's dedication to faith, family and a simpler, sustainable lifestyle. The food at the cafe was delicious - think comfort food - and reasonably priced. The stores with their handicraft demonstrations were very interesting,... More

Near Waco, Texas, Homestead Heritage is a look back in rural history. Food at their restaurant freshly raised on the farm - excellent - especially the jalepeno sweet potato soup! That is worth stopping in. The Pottery Barn shows beautiful hand made pottery; the wood work is beautiful. Shop, browse, watch corn meal being stone ground (and buy some), eat,... More

The monthly dinners at Homestead Heritage are a highlight of each month. Gourmet meals prepared and served by talented, dedicated friends make the experience unique each time. Dinner on Valentine's evening was over the top in ambience and quality of food and service. Salute!

This place will show you how it used to be done before power tools.. Great day trip back in time. The food is great and the scenery is fantastic. They offer classes in what you would be more interested in learning from blacksmith, wood shop, weaving and much more. A great way to hone your skills.

The Heritage Homestead property is an amazing place to visit. The place is run by an organization that runs http://www.homesteadheritage.com/ . They have not only a beautiful property with working historic buildings, but each of the buildings has a specific purpose with items to buy. Such as: * The Gristmill * The Foundry * The Cheese house (has a great... More
