homesteads; homesteading; homesteaded
A homestead is a house and surrounding land owned by a family — often, it includes a farmhouse.
Most people have homes, but not everyone has a homestead: that means your family owns more than a house. The homestead often consists of a farmhouse and land devoted to crops or animals. You'll find a lot more homesteads in rural areas than in cities. Often, a homestead is passed down from parents to children for generations.
