What a cool unique place to visit. The cafe was worth the small wait. Seeing all the handcrafted items, the grist mill and herb garden was such a treat. Even on a hot July day in Texas

The food is unbelievable fresh and worth the investment. (It's a little expensive because it's all organic.) The people who work there are so friendly. We have made a point of going... More

Homestead Heritage is a religious community that emphasizes simplicity and sustainability. Beautiful handcrafts and wonderful food at their cafe. You can tour their workshops and see where they create beautiful pottery, furniture and more.

A wonderful place for people of all ages, but buildings are scattered so be prepared to drive between. A working Amish community complete with exhibitions, wares, and food. We had lunch at the restaurant - food and service were excellent.

After eating at the restaurant we took the walking tour to see the different craft areas ... The blacksmith demo was very good along with the mill grinding the corn meal... You can purchase the items right their in the store....

Larger parties had a short time to wait. Lunch was great, the lady who waited on us was extremely helpful explaining what everything was and giving recommendations. The... More

If you love to see crafts coming together as you watch, this is the place for you to visit! If can visit potter's cottage, weaving, woodworking, mill, basket weaving and all the items are for sell. Really beautiful pieces!
