“Inspiring a back-to-nature, back-to-basics way of living”

Hello and welcome to Homegrown Kate. This is a place for me to share and hopefully inspire you with my ideas about food, foraging, gardening and anything else that happens along the way!

I’m a gardener, recipe writer, food stylist and author with a degree in health sciences and a huge passion for creating good, honest, tasty food from organic homegrown produce. Will and I are raising three ‘free-range’ children, five chickens and a dog and we do everything as naturally as possible. No chemicals, no additives, no nasties. Just heaps of goodness and lots of fun!


We grow loads of organic fruit and veg on our biodynamic allotment and these fantastic raw ingredients become meals that make us feel amazing and are packed full of natural energy. They’re also super quick and easy to make, because we’re striving for a simple life! Every recipe has been taste-tested by our own children and passed the ‘family-friendly’ test with flying colours, so we hope you enjoy the food as much as we do.

Many of our recipes are vegetarian, but we occasionally eat top-quality, locally sourced organic meat. All of our recipes are free of refined sugars and some are wheat free, dairy free and ‘raw’.  Every single one is big on taste and created with loads of love. We find that eating this way encourages more energy, good sleep, better health and an awesome sense of wellbeing. Yay!

Feel free to follow Homegrown Kate if you’d like to be the first to know when a new story is posted. Happy reading and I hope you have a great big, smiley, happy, healthy day!

Kate. xx

    Hi Cous
    What an amazing blog! Lovely ideas, scrumptious food and photos (taken by you or Will?). My mouth is watering. I wish I had the time and climate for more of these ideas. You do things so well. We do get a few homegrown tomatoes and other vegies from our garden within a brief growing season which are undeniably yum. Will keep reading for inspiration.

    Please say hi to Will and the kids from Matt, Lowan and I

      Really lovely to hear from you Kumalie and glad you like my blog! It’s such fun putting it all together. Photos are all mine, except the ones with me in them… Will takes those. Hope I can inspire you to grow more veg! Maybe some chickens in your back garden too??!!
      Love to all. xx

    Hi Kate. So glad I found you! Such a lovely life ethos. We aim for similar, growing our own food, cooking delish food, no / low chemicals, involved in the community and encouraging freedom and the good life. Look forward to future posts.
