Home.stead has gotten approval from the Health Department and the Building Department of Boston’s ISD to proceed with plans for our bakery & cafe. Our GC will be pulling permits very soon.
We made it past the $20,000 mark! Thank you so much for your help; we are blown away by the generosity of those who have contributed. We hope to reach $60,000 total in the next few weeks, please help to spread the word!

We are thrilled to announce that home.stead has officially chosen Counter Culture Coffee as our roaster. We’ll be serving their excellent coffees when we open later this fall. Counter Culture is renowned for sustainable coffee of the highest quality. Since their founding in 1995, Counter Culture Coffee has represented a different way of bringing coffee to market: sourcing incredible handmade coffees directly from farmers and cooperatives, and roasting to bring out their unique flavors. They’ll be providing us training and support at their facility in Somerville.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who attended our fundraising kick-off party on March 20th. More than 70 people were present! The evening was a perfect preview of what home.stead aims to become: a warm, inviting space for the community to gather, catch up with old friends, and meet new ones while savoring delicious food & beverages.
The party was the official kick-off for home.stead’s Indiegogo fundraising campaign. Please consider making a contribution to help us get home.stead bakery & cafe off the ground!
