Established in 2006 in the offices of The Tecumseh Herald - Homefront began as an exclusive real estate book and quickly morphed into a community lifestyle magazine. Originally mailed exclusively to every home and business in Tecumseh, we now reach far outside the Tecumseh area. The full-color glossy format has become a "must read" and therefore a "must advertise in..." publication.
Located 30 miles Southwest of Ann Arbor, we explore and bring to light the rich offerings this corner of Southeast Michigan has to offer. From farm to table recipes, antique offerings, loft renovations, personal stories and exciting events, our seasonal magazine focuses on the charm of small town living.
Known for taking immense pride in our work, we feel we succeed when our advertisers do. Our MPA (Michigan Press Association) Award-Winning graphic artists create many successful ad campaigns for local small businesses wishing not to remain small. Our design fee is free and is incorporated in our ad space rates. Businesses using their own agencies are also welcome to spread the word to our avid readers.
We like to keep you up-to-date with what's going on right in your own backyard.
Here are some stories from our latest issue of Homefront.

Ken and Sue love their historical home, but wanted to refresh the kitchen with modern touches that celebrate the past.

Beverly Nickle makes her living on the land where she grew up, with her husband and children in an 1850s farmhouse on Tipton Highway surrounded by greenhouses, plants, trees and nature. "My parents were farmers," she said as she gave me a tour of her property. "This was a dairy farm when I was a kid." Nickle went on to Michigan State University to study horticulture and earned a bachelor's degree in 2004. Then she came back to the farm and started growing produce on what she named Needle-Lane Farms. "That first year was just a little market garden, about an acre," she said. Read more
I grew up in Iowa, attended the University of Iowa and then, moved to New York City to pursue my printmaking career. Of course, I needed a day job to support myself, and spent nights and weekends creating art. In the mid-sixties, the city was a moveable feast for a young person with limited money - free music, galleries, museums, wonderful ethnic neighborhoods, and cheap restaurants. I started working at the Printmaking Workshop directed by Bob Blackburn who was associated with the Harlem Renaissance artists. The workshop was a haven for an international group of artists.

It might be one of the most misunderstood professions. Our ideas of lawyers are shaped through TV and big screen courtroom dramas. Yet, the reality is vastly different. We asked three Tecumseh lawyers to share their thoughts on practicing law, common misconceptions about their profession, and about their proudest moments... Read more
We love hearing your thoughts on the Homefront so much that we share it with others!
What a brilliant idea for your advertisers!! I read every inch of every ad. Looking for your paperclip insert on one of your ads... This is a beautifully done publication. I hope I get one every time you print one.
I've always loved Tecumseh. It's such a pleasant place to shop. Keep up the good work.
To staff at Homefront Magazine, Thank you for the quality publication that I enjoy!
The advertisements are helpful since we have lived in Tecumseh area for a few years now, and I'm still learning about our town. The articles are full of history and information I always glean from. I try to take advantage of as many community activities as I can from the advanced notice provided. Thanks again & Keep up the good work. It is appreciated.
I want to tell you how much I enjoy reading Homefront. I like the articles, I find useful business information from the ads & I always see interesting things to do in the calendar of events. I used to pick up Homefront when I was in Tecumseh shopping at What a Find! Consign. I was thrilled to get a copy delivered to my mailbox in Manchester.
Thanks again for a great magazine and making us aware of all that's available in not only Tecumseh but surrounding communities... Homefront is a winner again. It's a wonderful showcase for pure Michigan.
