Holmes County Get-A-Way

Each February we look forward to our little winter get-a-way to Holmes Co. Ohio. If you've never been there, it's a fun experience. Amish homesteads dot the landscape amongst the rolling hills and winding roads, ... and horses pulling Amish buggies cause us to slow down and enjoy the picturesque scenery. Bikes, buggies, and little children walking to school with their lunch pails are captivating to see! Mike and I left on a Tuesday, arriving around 5:00 to the home of an Amish family- Ivan & Esther Miller, our dear friends now for about 10 years. Ivan sold us our…

How We Use Our Two-Week Break

How We Use Our Two- Week Break As you may notice, each year the Homestead, located in Remington, shuts down for just two weeks (West Lafayette location, only one week) over Christmas and the New Year. We take this time to reflect, organize, clean, paint, etc. Things that just can not be done while we're open for business. While this might seem like a time where we can just relax and enjoy these two weeks of break, behind the scenes, we don't stop. This break is important to us each year as we use it for many different reasons. For…

KANSAS PRAIRIE | The Homestead

Kansas Prairie

Kansas Prairie It was a balmy afternoon on Thanksgiving weekend when my sister and I suddenly felt the urge to jump on the John Deere Gator and head west down the country road…mile after mile we drove…over the hills of Kansas. There was something so freeing, so pure, so simple, and so nostalgic about this trip as we rambled through the vast prairie. Contented cattle dotted the pastureland, resting in the shade of random trees, or drinking from the small pond of water. The sky was slightly overcast and the sun was high above the earth. The November breeze was…

Kevin O'Callaghan | The Homestead

Speaking Event featuring Kevin O’Callaghan

A few years ago, we hired a lady on to our Homestead team named Jackie O'Callaghan. She was the perfect candidate. She was very qualified for the position we were seeking, and she was specifically looking for a job in the Remington area. Why? Because she drove her husband to work in Remington every morning from West Lafayette, and picked him up again in the evenings. Allow us to explain. You see, her husband is blind. And her husband's name is Kevin O'Callaghan. Mike and I were intrigued! We learned that he worked at Advance Auto Parts, and not only…

Sweet Memories: Grandpa’s Homemade Ice Cream

Do you ever travel down memory lane and just wish you could go back and relive the moment? (... just one more time!) Recently, in preparation for the 4th of July, we dug out the White Mountain ice cream freezer, and made a batch of this smooth, sweet treat! It triggered many memories of Mike’s Dad. For those of you who knew Dad Bahler, he was the master of homemade ice cream. Vanilla, of course. He was well known around Wolcott for his ice cream and shared it liberally with others. When Dad and Mom moved to town the year…

The Beauty of Doing the Dishes

The beauty of doing the dishes If you need a new perspective on likely your least favorite job, you're in the right place. Whether you've realized it before or not, there really can be beauty in doing the dishes. If you're totally not convinced, read on to find out how. Many dishes means an abundance of food. Here in America, we're used to eating three meals a day, and then a few snacks in-between. Our struggle is never if we'll be able to scrape around dinner that evening, but rather it's whether or not we can manage to cram that delicious-looking…

Homestead Open House

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…
