Homestead Open House in Review

Remington's Homestead Open House in Review Eight years, can you believe it? We sure can't! As we celebrated our Homestead Open House at our Remington location this past weekend, we can't help but remember that eight years ago we were turning that closed sign on our door to open for the very first time. We were nervous as ever. Mom had come in to work early that first day to whip out homemade cinnamon rolls before the day began. We remember it so clearly. Eight years, two locations, three buildings, and many, many changes later, we look back on it…

Puppies at the Bahler Farm

Once again, our momma dog, Asher, blessed us with a set of puppies! Just to give you a little history on this beloved dog of ours, Asher was found roaming the country-side near our area, probably around 5 years ago. She didn't have a collar and she didn't appear to have a home, so our uncle asked us if we wanted to adopt it. We hadn't had a family dog in awhile, so we agreed to keep her.   Fun Fact: Without checking the gender, we actually just assumed our new dog was a boy (remember, we were a house…

The Homestead Puts Down Roots in West Lafayette WEST LAFAYETTE — Jody Bahler and her husband, Mike, opened The Homestead in Remington in 2010. In October, the couple opened a second location in West Lafayette at 1185 Sagamore Parkway. The Homestead is a multifaceted business organized around one core concept: good food. Both locations offer a wide selection of jams, pickled relishes, baked goods and a full-service lunch counter. The store also sells homemade frozen quiches, casseroles and pies. “We make everything from scratch so the consumer just buys it, thaws it and makes it,” Bahler said. A spinach and bacon quiche…

Opening West Lafayette

In April 2017, during our 7-year Anniversary Open House, Paul and Linda Widmer approached us about an available lease they owned in Bell Plaza, West Lafayette. It was the former Baker's Peak (which had a reputation for great cakes!) and they asked the Homestead if we would be interested in occupying that open space. At the time, we had a retail location open in Carmel, Indianapolis in the Village of WestClay. We were also in the middle of remodeling our "Cafe building" (the old cafe building across the Homestead parking lot) which we turned into a production kitchen, storage, and…

Potato Wedges with Sauce

I was asked to make dinner for our family one night, and so I started brainstorming what I could have... what could I make that was different than normal? Potatoes are my favorite, so I looked up recipes and this one caught my eye, off Potato Wedges with Shawarma Sauce: Sounded easy enough! I collected my ingredients and got to work! When these came out of the oven, honestly... they didn't last till supper. I ate almost the whole pan, as embarrassing as that is to admit. The spices and the olive oil blended together beautifully to create a…

Apple Pear Praline Pie

Anyone else really loving this fall weather?! I am, and decided to make a pie to celebrate. It doesn't include pumpkin (sorry, folks!) but it DOES include pecans, apples, pears, and caramel. It doesn't get much more fall-ish than that, if I do say so myself! The aromas are unbeatable, too. But...the great news? It's actually really simple! So if pies tend to scare you away, WAIT!! Try this one out; I think you'll change your mind. When I served this to our family at home (with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, of course), the pie got great…

A Tribute to our Cleaners

As you know, cleaning can be a thankless job, especially here at the Homestead. It takes about two hours to clean up the day's messes, and one day later it's messy again! We are incredibly thankful for the many hours our cleaners spend making this place shine, between broom-sweeping the floor, emptying trashes, cleaning bathrooms, sweeping rugs, washing windows, mopping floors, and wiping down appliances. All the work often goes unnoticed, but if it were to get forgotten, well, that would certainly get noticed right away! Our cleaners come in at the end of the day, after almost everyone has…
