Take Part in a True Homesteader Type Lifestyle

The Hutterites are a communal people, living on hundreds of scattered bruderhöfe, or colonies, throughout the prairies of northwestern North America. On average, fifteen families live and work in the typical Hutterite colony where they farm, raise livestock and produce manufactured goods for sustenance. We work with a number of these colonies and offer hands-on experiences right within a living and working community. Step back in time and learn to make bread, jam, milk a cow, or even make wine!
