Welcome to The Urban Homestead

Are you ready to create your own organic farm-to- table food based on old school traditional wisdom?

Sound Familiar…?

You are a busy yuppie who secretly suspects that the spirit of a nouveau urban hippie is hidden under that crisp, white blouse (or that dashing neck tie). You’re tired of eating on the fly while at work *and* tired of the food options in front of you.

You’ve heard about the revival of traditional foods and want to learn more but are not quite sure where to start. You crave a deeper connection to the food you eat and intuitively know that eating processed and fast foods just doesn’t feel right, but you fear you don’t have time to make change…

You want to slow down, simplify and live a bit more like your great-great grandparents did.

AND, you wish you can wave a magic wand and these changes would happen, *pouf* just like that…

We’ll get along really well if…

  • You’re ready to have a greater sense of *connection* to the food you eat, where you get it from and how you prepare it…
  • You want to learn more about centuries old traditional food wisdom and how to bring it into your home…
  • You get excited about the idea of creating your own little city homestead but feel you don’t know how or that you don’t have the space to do so… (you do! I promise!)
  • You know you are ready to make some small changes, yet you’re overwhelmed and feel you don’t have the time; you wish someone would show up at your door to make it all happen…

 

Pull up a shabby chic chair at The Urban Homestead if you…

  • Love all things beautiful and revel in the sweet luxuries of life – the delicious smell of home-cooked food on the stovetop, the taste of butter melting on warm, fresh out-of-the- oven sourdough bread, a night around the bonfire sipping a sweet cup of real cocoa, a picture perfect shore lunch with *just* caught fish …
  • Get excited when you discover special finds like a delightful local farm-to-table restaurant, a new farmers market, a charming antique store, a beautiful B&B, a breathtaking hike…
  • Have an open mind with a passion for life and new adventures…

Just a bit about me…

Iʼm Jill Kantor, CFO ~ Chief Fermentation Officer ~ of The Urban Homestead.

IMG_1984-3

Iʼm a busy mom, living a fast-paced life as a corporate professional *and* Iʼm a Traditional Wisdom Modern Kitchen Certified Teacher.

I’m a city girl, with an adventurous spirit and I started The Urban Homestead because Iʼm excited about the journey that I’ve been on – a journey to start living more organically, simply and with a greater sense of connection.

I started growing an edible organic garden, connecting with local farmers, food co-ops & supporting community shared agriculture (CSAʼs), composting, eating more mindfully and of course bringing in more traditional wisdom into my kitchen, my home and my life.

I want to share these incredible skills and have other, likeminded, busy, city folk learn some of the simplest tools to eat food that is steeped in the wisdom of centuries past centuries.

I want you to learn how to take time to slow down, simplify and celebrate the sweet life. My journey is still fresh, new and exciting and Iʼd love to teach you how to start slow and grow one day at a time, ~ together ~ with me by your side.

When we spend time together, you will…

  • Learn the simple methods needed to prepare whole, traditional foods and how to build a rhythm to manage it when time isn’t on your side.

  • Become more resourceful when looking for the best locally grown, GMO-free foods from pastured fed chicken & beef, to farm fresh eggs, to raw, unpasteurized honey, and organic grains, vegetables, fruit and oh, so much more
