Tecumseh Area Living Magazine

About Us

Established in 2006


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.

What We Do


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.

Spreading the Word


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.

Friday is Scone Day. While on the surface, Scone Day might sound like a day of baking and eating, (which, in part, it is) for Barb Vallieu, the creator of Scone Day, it is actually a day of contagious kindness.

Barb moved to Tecumseh a little less than two years ago. During her first year Read more

Through the doors of a nondescript building in Blissfield is a miniature world of wonder. Trains whirl around the Appalachian Mountains, through tiny quaint towns and stop at industrial steel mills. There are bridges over rivers, shipping yards, schools and Read more

Sara Hilton     Winter 2020 Homefront

I’ve made a terrible mistake. I think this on most winter days as I tote sloshing pails of warm water to the barn. Twice a day I leave my woodstove-warmed home to tend to my sheep and goats and chickens. In the winter, I never want to go. Opening the door means facing the bitter wind Read more
