Overview
More
The National Park Service has renovated and refurnished the Gifford farmhouse as a cultural demonstration site to interpret the early Mormon settlement of the Fruita valley. The house depicts the typical spartan nature of rural Utah farm homes of the early 1900's. In addition to the farmhouse, the Gifford homestead includes a barn, smokehouse, garden, pasture, and rock walls.

Nice little place to call off at when driving through the beautiful Capital Reef National Park. Located just a mile or so down the road from the Park's visitor's Centre (just off Utah State Route 24). The pies are to die for including cherry, apple,...More

This was so beautiful, sun going down, everything was golden and beautiful. There were a lot of mule deer just beside the parking area. The camp ground is right past it.

Love the history of this place, but the highlight are the pies and cinnamon rolls. Strawberry rhubarb, cherry, peach, apple and mixed berry pies. Great staff and lots more to see in the house. Be sure to stop.

Definitely worth the drive, just for the pie! It was delicious! There was a long line but totally worth it! I loved how lush and green everything around the Gifford Homestead is!

One word: pies. Get the pies. They are absolutely amazing. The gift shop is really nice and there is plenty of cool stuff to buy, and some history to explore, but the pies are what you really shouldn't miss.
