Hi there! I’m Jen, thanks for stopping by Honeychick Homestead!
My site is about more than urban homesteading. Here you’ll find a mix of diverse topics, about health, real food, Lyme Disease, and my newest adventure, urban homesteading! I began this adventure in 2013 and as of July 2015 I finally have chicken’s and bees, so I’m now a “honeychick” 🙂
I had the desire to build an urban homestead when my husband and I purchased a home with little bit of land. About a half-acre, to be exact! I had spent the past 11 years at a stressful job, sitting at a desk 40 hours a week. During the weekends, I’d spend time in the yard, and wish I could be there everyday. I’d also think about the constant stress at work, and was concerned it might keep me from overcoming Lyme Disease.
After lots of encouragement from my husband, I’m taking the plunge and focusing on those aspirations, full time. I’m excited to grow my skills as an orchard-keeper, bee-keeper, and hen-keeper. I look forward to having more time to focus on fully recovering from Lyme Disease.
I love being outdoors. I’m a tomboy at heart. I don’t mind getting dirty, especially if I’m having fun or getting a project done.
I enjoy cooking real, nourishing food.
I have a passion for all things health and wellness. For many years, I had unexplained health issues, that led me to educate myself about how to truly nourish my body. I’ll be sharing what I’ve learned along the way, including some of my favorite healing foods, and recipes.
I’m honored to share my Lyme story, and promote awareness about a disease tens of thousands struggle to overcome. I’d be happy to talk with you about my treatments, including thymus and stem cell therapy at Infusio or my awesome Lyme ND. Just leave a comment in the contact me section so we can connect!

A little more about me…
It took awhile, but I let California have a bit of my heart too, marrying a native helped 🙂 I try to enjoy this local view as much as possible!
I’m not professional blogger, cook or a typical “homesteader.” I’m learning as I go, and that’s fine with me! I’m excited to learn from others, and have this blog as a permanent record of how my husband and I built our homestead.
Finally, the “urban” part of my homestead includes a classic muscle car, R&B, soul, and hip-hop music, my handsome, handy husband, and two cute rescue dogs!
Let’s stay connected …
