GIVEAWAY: “Wild Bread, Tiptoe Through the Flowers”

Thank you for dropping by my Raising Jane Journal to participate in my giveaways! We’ve chosen a winner for this giveaway already (see below), but don’t be afraid to leave a comment anyway. I love reading them. And stay tuned for more great MaryJanesFarm giveaways.

In the Feb/Mar 2019 issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Tiptoe Through the Flowers” (on newsstands Jan 1), I led you here to my journal for a chance to win a FREE copy of my newest book, Wild Bread.


Wild Bread completely reinvents the concept of healthier-for-you, naturally fermented sourdough. Until now, sourdough was perceived as too much work and sour-tasting, artisan-style-only loaves. In Wild Bread, my quick and easy 1 minute 2x/day technique demonstrates the use of eight different types of flours for each bread featured―everything from gluten-free brown-rice flour to quinoa to common white to heirloom whole wheat―for a whopping 295 recipes and 475 photographs.

For a chance to win, tell me which of my books you’ve enjoyed most and why in the comments below. I’ll toss your name into a hat and draw a lucky winner sometime mid-February.

Check out my Wild Bread chatroom here. While you’re there, join in on our conversation about everything Wild Bread! If you haven’t picked up a copy of Wild Bread, you can find it here.

Stay tuned for more magazine-related giveaways. If you’re not yet a subscriber to my magazine, MaryJanesFarm, subscribe here for $19.95/year.


The winner of our Wild Bread giveaway is …

  8. Joanne Terwilliger says:

    I love all the books so it’s really hard to choose one. Glamping led me to the farm girls, but I think my favorite is Maryjane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook. It includes a little of all the books in one, and is so inspiring.

  20. Ann Senge says:

    The Idea Book is the best

  21. Elisabeth Perkins says:

    My favorite book would definitely be Wild Bread!! I have had so much fun making recipes! It took awhile for my mother to make it to the fridge stage, but now I have success every week! If I won this book I would give it to my friend, Crystal! I let her borrow my book to look at and she really liked it!

  22. Bonnie says:

    I’m just getting back to my farm roots. Baking bread would be a great start.

  23. Dale Card says:

    I am new to your magazine. Subscription has sent me 2 issues so far. I lived in Hailey for 10 years about 30 years ago and miss it very much. Your magazine brings back that spirit. I honestly don’t have any books yet. Hope I am not disqualified. Just reading through as soon as it comes in the mail makes my day!! Thank you sister !

  24. David Brown says:

    Iseabool is my go to! Thank you for this giveaway, I recently tried to harvest my own yeast but have since killed it twice! I need help 🙂

  25. David Brown says:

    The Idea Book is my go to! Thank you for this giveaway, I recently tried to harvest my own yeast but have since killed it twice! I need help 🙂

  26. Ann Andersen says:

    I haven’t read any of your books yet. I’m hoping to simplify my life, so I can find more times to do the things I truly enjoy, like reading, baking, and spending time with family.

  27. Cindy A. says:

    That’s a hard question to answer. I’d have to say whichever book is newest is the one I like best, at least until the next one is released. But, if hard pressed to tell which one is my all-time favorite I’d probably have to say your Idea Book. Since I love sourdough bread though, I have a feeling that this new offering will no doubt rise to the top!

  28. Karen Webster says:

    I love to cook, bake, and preserve things from the garden. Sourdough bread is someting I haven’t tried yet. Every time I see a picture of “WILD BREAD” I think, I need to order that book. I would love to win one. I read each addition of your magazine from cover to cover, but I don’t have any if your books yet.

  29. Jenny Eilers says:

    I am brand new to your magazine; just learning what it is all about. I haven’t read any of your books yet but would love to win this one to get started!

  30. sue says:

    I didn’t even know that store-bought yeast has a negative health aspect so would love to have a copy of Wild Bread.
    Thanks so much!

  31. Nellene Boatwright says:

    Unfortunately, I don’t own any of your books. I’ve wanted this one since I first saw an article about it in your magazine a year ago. I just haven’t found an extra $25.00 to purchase one. Hopefully, I will be lucky enough to win a copy.
    I love your magazine.

  32. Linda McKarns says:

    I am new to Mary Janes farm and have enjoyed it immensely. I had bought the magazine initially at our local store and enjoyed it so much I then subscribed. When I received my first issue it was the same as the one I had just bought so I shared and gave it to my sister. She loves cast iron cooking so I knew she would like this magazine as much as I did. For Christmas I also shared with her a package of Budget Mix. Thank you

  33. Kathleen Meggitt says:

    I just discovered Mary Jane’s Farm a few months ago, so this is the first of your books I’ve bought. I LOVE it, mostly because you so carefully and completely include gluten free flours and recipes. I’m excited to start my GF mother!! I would love an additional copy to share with my daughter, also GF, and interested in einkorn, which you ALSO included!! Thank you.

  34. Lynn says:

    I haven’t read any of your books YET but since I’ve just been introduced to you I plan to check them out!

  35. Christy Craver says:

    I don’t own any of your books but I have been a long time reader of your magazine. I would love to win your book.

  36. Lori Johnson says:

    I’ve really enjoyed MaryJane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook. Flipping through its pages leaves me feeling like I’ve had a conversation with a like-minded friend!

  37. Mona Tucker says:

    I don’t own any of your books, but since my passion is baking, this would be the one to start with! I’ve done some reading on wild yeast, and I’m curious to learn more about how it works.

  38. Deborah Reynolds says:

    Mary Jane,

    I fell in love with your magazine several years ago with copies that were gifted, (and I say “gifted” because that is what I felt they were), from an old family friend. I have since gotten my issues every month and I am so excited when they show up in the mailbox!

    This wonderful book you are giving away did not end up under the Christmas Tree this past season so I am hoping to win one. This will be my first Mary Jane book but there are several I intend acquire.

  39. Dee says:

    I did have Wild Bread, but gave it to a brother-in-law; now I need one of my own! I’ve also longingly looked at your Glamping book and the one about cows. I’m sure they are as fascinating as your magazine (to which I do subscribe), which makes them all winners. Thank you for this opportunity.

  40. I am a brand new subscriber. How did I not know you?! I do not have any of your books but I have made bread a couple times and this book would heighten my passion to serve my family off the land! My newly married daughter’s neighbor told her he wanted to bring a loaf of bread to her a welcome to the neighborhood. What a beautiful gift! I began to look for a homemade bread book. This would be wonderful.

  41. Eveline says:

    I bought this book for me but ended up giving it to a friend,who kept coming to borrow it, for Christmas. Now I need one for me, can’t wait to try some of the yummy recipes I spied when it was mine for a short time. My fingers are crossed.

  42. Julie Kenny says:

    I can honestly say I have just found Mary Jane magazine and web sites a few months ago and I am in LOVE! I’m a city girl (more suburbs) but country at heart. I love to cook and can’t wait to try all the new recipes in your new book! I love the mixes and recommend them to anyone!

  43. Debbie A Demuth says:

    I love cookbooks and would be overjoyed to add this one to my collection. Bread is always so therapeutic to make. I have not purchased any of your books as of yet, but would love to try this one.

  44. Bonnie says:

    I do not have any of your books but I love the magazine and would love to have this cookbook!

  45. Cindy Jacobson says:

    Tough choice, buy I would have to say “Glamping with Mary Jane”. I found that some of the information was helpful in other formats than glamping. Love you magazine.

  46. Lois Carr says:

    I am brand new to all this wonderful Farm Girl world. ..would love to win all of it! 😊😊😊

  47. Lois Carr says:

    I am new and don’t have any of these awesome books…husband limits my purchases😕 I would love to win any of them!

  48. Deean Hicks says:

    I love Cast Iron, I have learned so much. Thank you.

  49. Virginia Pewthers says:

    Just received my first issue of Mary Jane’s Farm so now learning about your books. Would love to have Wild Bread

  50. Margaret Miller says:

    I am new to MaryJane, but very impressed with my magazine subscription. I am a brea baker and would love to learn a better method for sourdough. By the way the Bacon and Corn Chowder is to die for.
