Heritage Enriched

4th generation embracing change

From the past to the future

our story

Well Hello there. 

I’m Shaina Grace, a city transplant turned farmer, fulfilling my dream of being a homesteader and country girl. Raised in the city, I always knew my heart belonged in the countryside.

In 2001, my Grandma passed away, and the family farm of 150 acres was divided among three children. My dad chose the land with the old farmhouse and open fields, but over time, only his 52 acres remained.

In 2014, my dad fought a brave battle with Colon cancer, but sadly, we lost him in July 2016. Faced with the decision to sell the farm or take a loan to save it, we chose to preserve our family history and became the proud owners of a falling-apart farmhouse & 37 acres.

Though the land is overgrown, and the farmhouse in disrepair, I’m committed to restoring our heritage. It will be an immense undertaking, but I’m eager to document and share our journey with you all.

Thank you for joining us, and here’s to a joyous journey of homesteading!

Our History

Our journey begins with the visionaries – my Great Grandparents. They purchased this land, sowed the seeds of hard work, and raised 14 children, setting the stage for what we are today.

One of those children was my Grandfather, a guiding light whose wisdom and strength remain woven into the fabric of our farm. Though his time here was short, his impact endures.

Exploring our ancestry, I’ve unearthed treasures like an apology letter from my Great Grandfather to my Great Grandmother – a poignant reminder of the love that underpins our story.

As I stand on this land, a living connection to generations past, I honor their journey. 

Grace Homestead Farm is more than a name; it’s a legacy of family, love, and growth that continues to flourish with each passing day.
