Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Nothing better than a good loaf of homemade bread and some wild blueberry jam. Keep it simple.

Hi, Alexis. Welcome to HOMEGROWN! My name is Jennifer, and I'm the flock tender here: site updater and tweaker, feeder and waterer of content. And Rockport! My husband is from southern Maine, and since we’re in Massachusetts, we head north every chance we get.

I’m so glad you found HOMEGROWN. I hope you turn up plenty of projects and ideas here to spur you on, and I hope you’ll be game for sharing some of your own, too—more on your road to farm ownership, please!—in our member blog, The Stew. Elsewhere on HOMEGROWN, you can always find the latest additions to the site at the top of the homepage, and if you’ve ever got questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment on my profile page or shoot me a message. I hope you feel right at home!
