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 10 time 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.
It's a bouquet that you eat. It's a scent that you taste. It's edible beauty. Eating flowers is not a new fad. Many ancient cultures like the Greeks and Romans and Chinese incorporated flowers into their meals. Over the centuries, kitchen gardens are said to have included edible flowers, adding both beauty and sustenance. Today, edible flowers are splashing their colors back onto our plates, enticing us to blend our senses as we try to taste the color and smell of the beautiful blossoms. Read more
Long ago, members of the Native American Sauk and Pottawatamie tribes created the Great Sauk Trail from the Detroit River across southern Michigan. The plentiful oak trees that covered the landscape were interspersed with natural openings where travelers would gather to rest and come together in community. One such place became the Village of Clinton, where the Clinton Arts Center's (CAC) new building, named "Oak Openings" Read more
"Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds." So says the long-fabled motto of the United States Postal Service. Yet, despite these harrowing words, the magnitude of the postal service's tasks and the carriers who complete these appointed rounds are often overlooked and unconsidered.
Five days a week, through snow and rain and heat and gloom, Tecumseh postal carrier Carely Neuvirth Read more
With visits from area 4-H members and Wild World Zoo in Jackson, Cambrian Assisted Living residents have gone wild for animals. The special visits have created new memories and sparked personal remembrances for residents. Mandy Otto, director of life enrichment for Cambrian, knows the natural world is a great way to enhance the day for the residents in assisted living, as well as the memory care residents. The animals stimulate the senses of hearing, vision, touch, and smell and add joy for residents and staff, too. "A lot of our residents were farmers. Many raised the same animals on a farm," Otto said. "I always try 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.
