ABOUT US & OUR STORE'S HISTORY
A welcoming, comforting and transparent gathering place for the community.
Homestead Country Store is a small, privately owned country store, featuring: beef, pork, chicken and eggs all locally raised, the "Old Fashioned" way. The store
was built on our ranch in 2014 near the old settlement house that
was built in the early 1900s. Our new store opened May 22, 2015 and officially started accepting customers June 1, 2015.
and Grandparents taught us to live a simpler but more fulfilling life, they taught us to spend less than we make, take care of and be happy with what we’ve been given, respect the land and livestock and always be thankful. We love this life, and we’re raising our kids to do the same."
We have always been “ranchers”. We were raised ranching, just like our parents, grandparents and great grandparents. Most of our ancestors were born, raised and lived their entire life merely a mile from where they grew up. Growing up, they helped on the ranch while their parents slowly put them together a herd of their own. Once the opportunity arose, they moved out with a small herd, and started their own ranch and family, not too far away. While this seems an amusing concept and rather difficult to grasp in these days of constant commuting, moving across the country for job change or promotion… they stayed consistent, never changing. Living a simpler but more fulfilling life, they taught us to spend less than we make, take care of and be happy with what we’ve been given, respect the land and livestock and always be thankful. We love this life, and we’re raising our kids to do the same.
VALUES & PURPOSE
Homestead Country Store believes that everyone should have the opportunity to "EAT LIKE A
RANCHER", by feeding their bodies and families tasty, healthy and nutritious real food, the way God intended.
Allowing people the opportunity to purchase their food in the very same neighborhood where it is raised.
Our store on the ranch, sells home-raised hormone free (no added growth hormone)
chicken, & eggs.
In addition to wonderful meat, Homestead Country Store empowers its customers with the option to obtain fresh fruits and vegetables, all year long, by collaborating with the
Bountiful Baskets Food
Homestead Country Store strongly desires to promote and encourage wives and mothers, with the
peace of knowing that their food is a healthier option, all in one place. The store also deeply believes in supporting local small business and therefore invites and welcomes area entrepreneurs, with an opportunity to market their
products by creating another avenue for our neighboring small farmers and ranchers who believe in quality above quantity, and doing things right… even if the profit margin is small.
People are starving, not only for nutritious and healthy food, but for: the return of simplicity, the ability to trust again, honesty, common sense, community with real friendship and to see accomplishment again. We believe that this lifestyle is still possible, but it will take a lot of hard work, something we know very well. We believe it is still possible to offer quality, customer service and honesty.
