Who We Are

Homestead Hut™ supports the emerging focus on local food production, the creation of home goods, and the journey toward self-sufficiency. We strive to promote these practices by offering access to an efficiently designed, state-of-the-art mobile kitchen equipped with everything needed to clean, prepare, process, and package goods.

COVID-19 Response

  • In need of temporary access to a fully functional kitchen during these uncertain times? Homestead Hut is here to help with COVID-19 relief by providing a sterile portable kitchen space and appliances  for food preparation.
     

  • Homestead Hut was created to promote cooking, processing, and preserving local harvests. Our goal is to minimize inadequacies in food systems through education and accessibility and the urgency and need to pursue these ambitions is evident now more than ever. We are here to facilitate pursuits in food security and resilience.

We are excited to be open for business in the Gunnison Valley! Currently renting our kitchen for personal food processing/preparation, demonstrations, classes, and private events.
