CHATSWORTH, Calif.—This week marks a landmark in porn history, with Homegrown Video set to release the 800th volume of its signature self-titled series. Homegrown Video Eight Hundred releases March 31 on DVD, allowing Homegrown to keep its title as “the longest running series in the history of porn” (Newsweek magazine).

Homegrown Video has been producing authentic amateur content since 1982, with the first volume in the Homegrown Video series released in spring of the same year. Originally titled Homegrown Video A, the company ran through the alphabet twice before recognizing the series’ ongoing success, and switching to numbered volumes.

Homegrown Video Eight Hundred features several longtime amateur submitters from across the globe, from Latvia to Asia to Denver. The participants—all original fans of Homegrown—provide self-shot scenes that celebrate some of Homegrown’s best-known genres: anal, creampies, deepthroating, girl-girl, busty, outdoors, and facials.

"I discovered Homegrown Video in the ’80s, fascinated by people creating their own homemade porn,” remembers Homegrown Video President Farrell Timlake. “My wife and I decided to send in our own: a great way to finance more Grateful Dead shows! Little did I know that the owner of Homegrown Video would eventually ask me if I wanted to buy Homegrown ... the rest is an XXX fantasy come true."
