East Texas Homestead Farms

East Texas Homestead Farms is a historic piece of land that was the homestead of one of East Texas's first naturalists. We offer a Bed and breakfast cottage as well as a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) venture. Our CSA is in our first year and our subscriptions for vegetables are currently sold out. We do welcome you to call us as we can sometimes provide non-subscription produce as our crops allow. We always have Lean Black Hereford Hamburger available in one pound packages.

Located just outside of Mineola, most buildings at Homestead Farms are constructed with materials recovered by the former owner from turn of the century structures. The heritage continues with the renovation of "The Cottage" at Homestead Farms. The cottage renovation was completed in 2010 utilizing materials that had been stored for decades in the former owners woodworking shop and outbuildings. "The Cottage" is available for overnight stays. The property is located just a few miles from Texas's premier bass fishing lake, Lake Fork, and a short drive to First Monday in Canton.

East Texas Farms is associated with PineHill Ranch, located directly across the county road from The Cottage and is known as Texas's top selling breeder of Black Hereford Cattle. www.blackherefords.com Black Hereford cattle roam the pastures of Homestead Farms.
