Welcome to Headwaters Homestead. A small farm built on big dreams in Hartville, Ohio.

We’re a small homestead and subsistence farm situated at the headwaters of the Tuscarawas River in northern Stark County, Ohio.

Inspired by fellow homesteaders and small-scale farmers we strive to develop a strong relationship with our land. In return the land sustains us through the beauty and bounty of what the tended earth and Mother Nature can provide.

We believe we’re on to something special. A higher calling and a better way of life. We want to share that with you.

This is Headwaters Homestead.
