Homestead Series at Snuck Farm

At Snuck Farm, we’re reinventing the homestead for the 21st century. Homesteaders are everything we admire: people who work hard, with a sense of where they are in the world and how they relate to one another and the earth. They’re generous, community-oriented, willing to share what they have and what they know. They’re great neighbors, and strong friends. This land was settled by homesteaders in the late 1800s, and although the exact methods we use have changed, the spirit of adventure and of community hasn’t.

As our world has evolved, many of us have gotten away from our ancestors’ self-sustaining skills. This isn’t a bad thing - time that we don’t have to spend sewing our own clothes or processing our own wheat is time we can spend on the people and pastimes we love. But it also means we have time to pursue some of the skills our ancestors were experts at, like beekeeping, flower and vegetable gardening, keeping chickens, and more. We do it not out of necessity, but out of joy: to build relationships and new passions.

We’re exploring all of this in our Modern Homestead Series: a collection of workshops on living on and with the land. Together, we're building a sustainable, handy, generous community, and reclaiming lost arts for the 21st century. We're teaching skills you can use no matter where and how you live.

Come check out our Modern Homestead Series to see which classes are coming up, and to be inspired to bring a little of that homesteading spirit to your home!

I love eating local. There’s nothing like visiting a farmers market and holding a piece of produce that was picked a few hours ago. It’s a whole-body experience. When you pick up a peach, it’s heavy and sweet-smelling.

When I was a kid, one of my jobs was helping Grandma clean up around the house. As I’m sure was true for many of you when you worked on your childhood chores, I was always tempted to rush through it. I wanted to cut corners, wiggling out of “just right” and into “good enough.”

In my experience, the best way to get kids interested in healthy cooking and eating is to get them involved in the kitchen. When we cook as a family, we all have a stake in the final meal, and that allows us to enjoy it more fully. We can set the table and fill our plates, each of us having created a part of what now works together as a whole, rounded experience.
