It's all in a name

I am wanting to name our "homestead".  We live on 4.7 acres, in a rural area, but also close to several small towns.  We live about 20 minutes drive from the biggest city, and 5 minutes drive to the freeway.  I really like our location.  We have a long, narrow lot so our neighbors are close, which can be a good thing or bad thing, depending on who is renting the house on our right.  We have elderly neighbors on our left, who we love dearly.  
We have a garden and are working on some fruit trees and berries.  We grew some strawberries and blueberries this year!  The back 2.5 acres of our property is wooded and thick with underbrush.  It is also pretty marshy and the last acre is wetland.  We have our home, a 600 sq. foot building we call "the studio" (used to be used as a recording studio before we moved in), a shed that our kitty Betty sleeps in, a pump house and a covered parking area that we have used as a woodshed and storage area for bikes and toys.  Our homestead is constantly a work in progress, but we have done a lot since we moved in four years ago. 

Please leave me a comment with suggestions on a name for our place.  I think it will make us feel more at home!
