Villagers gather Coin from Plantations faster.
—In-game description

Homesteading is a technology in Age of Empires III that can be researched by European civilizations at the Plantation once the Industrial Age is reached and Bookkeeping is researched. Once researched, it allows Settlers, Coureurs des Bois, and Settler Wagons to gather coin from Plantations and Rice Paddies 20% faster. Refineries is the further upgrade of this technology.
