Homestead Kitchen Tour: Northern Homestead

Homestead Kitchen Tours |

This week, I am featuring Anna’s Homestead Kitchen. Anna blogs at The Northern Homestead in Alberta, Canada.


Anna says:

Our homestead country kitchen has lots of space for cooking, baking, sprouting, fermenting, making cheese, and …hmm, eating. I love all the work space and the natural light. My Favorite Tools & Gadgets are: Grain mill, Kitchen Aid mixer, juicer, Vitamix, digital scale, stainless steel cooking set, food processor, sprouter …

My biggest Challenge Cooking Real Food is to keep it all clean. It seems like I am always either cooking, baking, sprouting, fermenting, and do not forget eating, and it all makes a mess. I cook mostly from memories, old family recipes from all around the world. I also like Nourishing Traditions and some german recipe books.

Now lets tour our homestead kitchen:

Extra work space- a simple Ikea cabinet we added that works great!

My kitchen helpers:

A Kitchen Aid mixer, that I make great dough with, and a juicer. Notice the extra self-made container to keep the pulp in!

Vitamix, another kitchen helper I would not want to be without.

We love to grow herbs and micro greens all winter-right in our kitchen!

I love how Anna uses her homestead kitchen to grow things during their (very long) winter season! She inspires me to do more during my very average winter season here in Virginia.

    It looks great! I think a lot of people struggle with keeping the kitchen clean – at least I know I do! In the kitchen pictured I think I would miss having a counter beside the stove to set things on. I do love the plants in the window.

    It is so nice to look into another woman’s kitchen… I love the homemade holder on the juicer! I will need to try that on mine. 🙂 I am currently trying to talk my guys into adding a shelf in front of the kitchen windows to get the plants/herbs off of my counter… I can’t afford to give up the counter space. It is an ongoing thing to make the kitchen more usable. 🙂

    She has a lovely variety of ferments and I also love the year round growing of herbs 🙂

    Thank you for continuing to share this fun series on the Art of Home-Making Mondays Angi!

  5. I love the pulp holder, I’m totally stealing that idea! I’ve always been so inspired by Anna and what she grows in her cold climate. Thanks for sharing with us at Simple Lives Thrusday; hope to see you again this week.

  6. Thank you everyone for the nice comments! It was so fun to share a bit of my kitchen with you!

  7. Love this kitchen! I sooooo want a grain mill. And I love the view you have outside your window.
