Heritage Workcraft is a small, family-owned business operating out of our shop nestled in the beautiful forest near the gates of Yosemite National Park. We are a husband and wife team with a passion for creating high-quality leather products, most of which are used in clay shooting sports.
In 2020, we moved from Jennifer's hometown in the Central Valley to Adam's mountain hometown near Yosemite. It was our hope to provide a simpler, more intentional way of living for our children. We homeschooled for three years and recently transitioned our kids to the local school, where they are thriving, learning, making new friends, and doing sports.
We are part of our local 4-H group where we enjoy learning about raising animals, photography, sewing, cooking, golf, and so much more. Our daughter has raised two pigs for our county fair auction and our son hopes to raise a lamb this upcoming year. We have chickens, three dogs, a cat, and a lovely garden where Jennifer spends much of her time cultivating the land and filling the pantry with canned goods to last throughout the year.
Our hope is that someday we can transition from a small home-based business to a full-time operation, allowing us to raise our children in an environment that teaches them hard work, discipline, and the joys and benefits of a job well done.
