About Modern Homestead A journey that began over three decades ago as a roadside fruit tree stand in Kingwood has continued to evolve and grow as one of Preston County’s oldest family-owned and operated businesses. Today, the next generation, Lucas Tatham and Trellis Smith, are at the helm of Modern Homestead (formerly Tathams) which includes our seasonal greenhouse and new budding divisions–coffee shop, gift shop and guesthouse.


Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!
