    This is one fantastic opportunity, Farmgirls! There are all sorts of perks but the number one perk is being a part of a group of talented, creative, supportive and fun women across the US and Canada. And, if you don’t get chosen for this giveaway, consider the $20 investment for a present to yourself. We would LOVE to have you join us in all the fun over at MJF Farm!

    MJF gives me a chance to connect to my “tribe” and reinforces a way of life that is all too uncommon…I love being able to connect and share with like-minded gals who inspire me and always have great advice!

  3. Bobbie calgaro says:

    I love to see the ways that women are working to make the world a better healthier place. Also a world not so consumer driven but a world where handmade is cherished and encouraged. A simpler life.

  4. Shannon Hudson says:

    Being a part of MJF Sisterhood is an opportunity to belong… an opportunity to “make sense” to others… an opportunity to share your knowledge and glean from others… an opportunity to set yourself goals and work towards them… an opportunity to share life’s trials and triumphs. The Farmgirl Sisterhood is just that – a group of ladies that become more like sisters than complete strangers

  5. Marlene says:

    Reading, learning from the Sisterhood, makes me feel a part. A real, connected, like I know you part! I just feel encouraged and want to be a part of that encouragement myself. Hugs!

    I love the blogs from around our vast country from “farmgirls”. Sisters who enjoy sharing the ups and downs of everyday living. The many joys of sharing homemaking and crafty ways to feather our nests. I love learning old time-tested ways and new twists on recycling.

  7. Gaye Durst says:

    Although I live in the city, Maryjane’s Farm helps me feel so connected to all women everywhere on and off a farm. I can live vicariously through you all. It is true that farmgirl is a state of mind, I learnd I could still be a part of this sisterhood!

  8. Rebecca says:

    I find that being a member of MJF sisterhood, more than a place where like minded women gather, but more of a family. Each person you interact with becomes a new sister which you learn about and share the ups and downs, joys and sorrows. This brings each member closer and has the ability of filling a void that most of us have in our lives and with each new encounter we draw from the strengths and have the ability our adding our strengths to those who need us when they are facing trials. It is like a family and for many of us, it is our only family.

    Hay there,

    Wow! How many ways have I grown and bloomed by just having the connection of all these wonderful farmgirls? So so many!!! I have meet friends that I will probably never get close enough to wrap my arms around their neck but they are still my friends! I have been inspired by them and MaryJane too. I consider my life much richer to have found MJF and enjoy the farmgirls.

    I love MaryJanesFarm. Reading the articles and stories and looking at the vintage Farmgirl pictures reminds me that I’m not doing this alone… even though it usually feels like it. 🙂 So, MaryJanesFarm doesn’t physically connect me with other farmgirls, but it does spiritually. I’ve been wanting to join the sisterhood, but have had to use my limited funds for equipment and feed. This giveaway is a blessing.

  11. Daizy says:

    Farmgirls ROCK !!

    I don’t do a desk job and my commute is just out the door so its really nice to have human contact thru MJF. I am so very thankful for this sisterhood.

    Hugs and prayers,

    I really enjoy reading all of the articles The recipes are especially great as the are new and many are ones that remind me of my mother who was a fantastic cook. The articles on handicrafts are great and so complete a person can make them up themselves. The Bird kitten teaser was precious.

  13. Nancy Shaffer says:

    Get so excited when your sweet magazine arrives in my mailbox. I stop what I am doing and start reading with ooos and aaaws about each page – in fact- I re-read it all month!! It then goes in my “Mary Jane” box with notes written all over the covers and inside too. I refer to all issues. I have ordered past issues and have really enjoyed them all. Bless the staff for continuing to produce such wonderful literature.

  14. Christine says:

    I’ve had MaryJanesFarm out at work during lunch and it has started conversations with my co-workers about being being healthier, coming up with creative ways to recycle items into new and useful things and urban homesteading. It has been a great way to bring us together and I’ve had to make several trips back to the store to replace copies I’ve given away.

  15. Jennifer Locke says:

    I just discovered the magazine today at the Honest Weight Co-op in Albany, New York. We are getting chickens this spring and I dream of a milking cow. I’d love to be part of a larger group of women farming. Thanks!

  16. Rachele says:

    My Aunt subscribed me to this magazine and I got my first issue this month. I think I might have read it 4-5 times now and I keep finding new interesting things. I’m a country girl in the city. When I read about the Farmgirl Sisterhood I instantly got excited and so desperately want to be a part of this group! I would love to learn from other women and grow as a person. Someday I would love to have my own garden (city garden) and I absolutely love animals and have dreamed of having chickens. I have 2 boys who I think would love and grow from this as well. I can’t wait for the next issue and I hope I win!!

  17. Susan Campbell says:

    It lets me know about other women and how they live and also I get a lot of good ideas from them. I read each issue a couple of times and share it with the oarents of my Family Childcare.

  18. Colleen says:

    When I first received this magazine it inspired me to do things that I only dreamed of before. It is nice to read articles of successful women following their passion.

  19. Dawn Alsept says:

    I love the modern look and feel of the magazine but completely identify with my romanticized ideals of days gone by that are showcased monthly. I love reading others tips and ideas and love feeling connected to a few new generations of “farm girls”

    Thanks so much for such a great publication!!!

  20. Cynthia says:

    Simplicity, encouragement, fun – just what I enjoy finding with MJF. Thanks

  21. Sandy Rees says:

    I enjoy reading what the other ladies are doing to make life better for their families.

  22. Melanie Rykena says:

    Mary Janes Farm gives me so many ideas and things to try….and they are all from women who simply want to help other women;)

  23. Donna says:

    I enjoy MJF Every issue i learn something new I like the GF recipes and i enjoy reading about the other ladies adventures in farming, crafts, cooking etc.

  24. Elisabeth Perkins says:

    I love MaryJanesFarm magazine! It inspires the farm-girl spirit in me! Helps me get ideas for things I want to do! I love all the recipes and references to healthier self sustaining organic living! It’s awesome! I am planning on joining the sisterhood just don’t know if I can wait till after mid-February…I may have to join before then! 😀

  25. Heather Hayes says:

    Mary Janes Farm has fueled my creative spirit when it has reached its lowest, by bringing me back to life through the creativity of others. MJF gives me the opportunity to see what other women are doing or have done in the past to bring us to where we are today, a group of women inspired to make the world a better place in whatever place we are planted.

  26. Kelli learned says:

    Absolutely LOVE MJF!! Gives me ideas for cooking, gardening, crafts, etc. makes my world a better place!
