My name is Trish Nichols and this has been my online “passion project” since 2010.
I used to own and publish an off-line print magazine called Welcome Home Magazine, which was an upscale glossy magazine for local homeowners.
Welcome Home Magazine covered topics such as interior design, landscaping, cooking, entertaining, home maintenance, and community events. Home, Farm & Garden continues these themes, but also includes the wonderful world of hobby farming.
I come from a long line of farmers: My grandparents were full-time farmers and my mom and dad owned a 70-acre place with corn fields, pastures, fruit orchards and lots of farm animals when I was a kid.
Today, my husband Chris and I have small place – although I hesitate to call it a real hobby farm just yet. 🙂 For now, it is mostly a blank slate with a house, a run-in shed, a fenced-in pasture and dogs, horses and a not-quite barn cat named Newman. (Ok, he’s a house cat).
Considering what we started with – we’ve come a long way, but there’s still LOTS of work to be done… but that’s half the fun, isn’t it?
