Homestead Heritage

I've always read about and heard great things about Homestead Heritage, and we finally tried it for ourselves on Saturday, March 8th!

Homestead Heritage is a 510 acre homesteading village. This little village is full of craftsmen who love what they do! There is a delicious Cafe located on the grounds (which is the real inspiration behind wanting to go). There is a Barn that was built by Dutch settlers in Northern New Jersey during the early 1800's, that has since been restored and houses lots of goodies- from furniture to natural soaps that have all been handcrafted by the gifted workers at the Homestead. They also have a woodworking barn, a potters barn, a blacksmith barn, and my favorite-a Gristmill. They still utilize the gristmill that is powered by water to make all their wheat for the Cafe!

The Cafe is adorable, not to mention divine! All their products come from locally sourced ingredients! They have grass fed beef, sandwiches, soups, and delicious desserts! Wes enjoyed a Reuben sandwich with a side of chips and guacamole! I enjoyed a natural turkey wrap with fresh fruit! Then we both just HAD to try their homemade ice cream in a homemade waffle cone. Wes chose maple pecan and I chose sorgum pecan...can we say GOOD!!!

We've decided to make this a Saturday morning/afternoon tradition!

Daddy enjoyed watching the blacksmith!

Such a fun experience!
