Homestead Village: Thrive Where You Are

While cookies await packaging, Nancy Enders prepares one of her “welcome” coffee cakes for a new resident of Homestead Village.

Meet Nancy Enders 

Nancy lives with her husband, Jay, at the Farmstead at Homestead Village. Nancy is known around Homestead for providing new residents with “welcome” coffee cakes. Her mission is to bring joy and happiness to others through her baked goods, as was evidenced when Nancy organized a small team of residents to bake more than 3,000 cookies and other treats to brighten the days of staff who continued to work diligently throughout the pandemic. She also contributes to community bake sales to raise funds for initiatives such as the Homestead Village Auxiliary. Beyond baking sweets, Nancy recently prepared 12 pans of lasagna for community meals at Zion Lutheran Church in Landisville. 

The Importance of Kitchen Design at Homestead

Universal Design is a concept that calls for spaces to not only be beautiful, but also accessible and functional. Utilizing that concept, Homestead opens and brightens spaces as residences are renovated. In designing their homes, residents are not limited to a small showroom of options, rather they can work with our in-house renovations team to customize their new spaces in many unique ways. 

In the realm of kitchens, cabinetry is locally sourced and is ordered from a select line of stylish options. We have partnered with the cabinetmakers to incorporate standard touches such as slow-close drawers and pull-out shelving. Homestead Village also supports the business community by partnering with local suppliers and vendors. From fully renovated kitchens to artistic wallcoverings or tile, Homestead Village residents are assured of moving into an apartment, cottage or carriage house they will be proud to call home. 

Dining Options on Campus 

The Plow and Pineapple Café is sometimes casual, sometimes formal (The Pineapple Room), but always excellent. Chef-prepared specials, made-to-order breakfast offerings and action stations will keep you coming back for every meal. Our newest upscale café-style eatery, Stauffer Spring House, offers fresh, made-to-order breakfast and lunch fare.

Food Culture 

Unidine, Homestead Village’s new dining service, creates hand-crafted meals on a daily basis. Each fresh-to-order meal is prepared and finished to the taste of individual residents and guests.
