Homestead Bakery Hours
the bakery

Just like the pumpkin patch, we love diversity. That is why we offer 18 flavors of angel food cakes and our baked goods have spanned the country, much like our beloved cucurbits.

We have taken our products to the Country Living Fair in Columbus, OH, Atlanta, GA, Rhinebeck, NY, and Austin, TX, as well as Farmer’s Markets in Urbana and Springfield, IL.

Besides the natural connection between a pumpkin patch and a bakery, we love the idea of doing something from start to finish. We love to grow things, we love to produce things and we love to share the end product with our family and our customers.

Each of our pumpkin cookies represents the full life cycle of of our beloved cucurbit and reminds us of what the land can provide if given the opportunity.
