The Homestead, Located in Remington & West Lafayette Indiana

The Homestead!  We are a family-owned business that was founded in 2010 in downtown Remington, IN.  Our second location in West Lafayette, IN opened in 2017. We continue to supply and serve our communities as well as outlying areas with products that customers love and enjoy. We are the Mike and Jody Bahler family.  We live and labor in the heart of a farming community where we raised our five daughters and taught them the simple joys of planning, preparing, and serving wholesome meals around the family table.  Life brings change to family dynamics and we found ourselves busy with…

The Turn of Autumn

The long hot days of summer have gently given way to the cooler days of Autumn. I welcome this time of year, but inwardly hesitate to embrace the change when I know that winter is coming! The summer flower pots are trying their best to remain vibrant through the seasonal change, as if they know their days are limited. Some of the coleus way outdid themselves this year, and were looking a little droopy with heavy top stalks! These pots have been refreshed and adorned with beautiful fall mums and to enjoy for a few more weeks. Recently while on…

Wheat Harvest

I'm a transplant from Kansas- otherwise known as the sunflower state. Kansas is also known for their waving fields of golden wheat out on those wide-open prairies. As I drove down the lane early one morning, I couldn't help but stop at the wheat field and capture the beauty of the freshly cut wheat and the new bales that dotted the landscape. The picture just didn't do it justice, but this scene took me back to my roots. My dad baled the large round hay bales for the cows, and we loves it when they stacked rows and rows of…

Holmes County Get-A-Way

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…
