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 5 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.

My dad was a football coach at the University of Iowa. After home games (win or lose) we would have a crowd over for spaghetti and meatballs or lasagna on those Saturday nights. Food lessened the gloom after a defeat. Read more
In a world where Americans spend minutes with medical practitioners and large sums of money on pills for pain relief, acupuncture can offer a refreshing alternative. More time is spent with practitioners and less money is spent on pain pills. This ancient medical practice began in China thousands of years ago, with the first textbook written somewhere around 305-204 B.C.
Most people think of needles when acupuncture is discussed, but practitioners find needles to be only one aspect of treating human ailments, and sometimes needles aren't used at all. The focus of Chinese medicine and acupuncture is Read more

Walt Harvey has known Dick Thomas for most of his life, with a personal and work relationship. Not only did he sell Thomas wood for his company, Thomas Woodworking in Clinton, he would also help out at the business. "I was actually his lumber salesman," said Harvey. "I was a sales rep for HMI Hardwoods for the last 14 years."
At the same time Thomas was ready to retire, Harvey was ready for a mid-life career change. "At 50 some guys go out and buy some kind of toy," Harvey said. "I quit my job and started a business." Read more

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.
