Heritage Farm and the School of Homesteading are located within the Homestead Heritage community at Brazos de Dios. We have 510 acres of mixed woodland and arable farmland cultivated by traditional sustainable farming and gardening methods. Four of those acres are designated as Heritage Farm—A Working Homestead. This model homestead is a teaching and research facility where we offer workshops and seminars to those wanting to learn homesteading skills. The homestead contains a log cabin, a barn, a greenhouse, a family vegetable and herb garden, an orchard, a vineyard and berry patch, animal pens and corrals, pastures and a larger field that we farm with draft animals. Heritage Farm provides a context for hands-on, interactive learning on a working farm.
Adjacent to Heritage Farm is the Homestead Heritage Traditional Crafts Village. This includes a blacksmith shop, pottery shop, woodworking shop, retail gift and craft store, deli, bakery and gristmill. Here our craftsmen and apprentices work daily in the traditional crafts that support our agrarian lifestyle. These craftsmen serve as the instructors and the shops as the classrooms for teaching the crafts and skills offered through the School of Homesteading.
