Cast Your Vote

Get ready to cast your vote for jobs in rural America.

Here’s how. MORE magazine sent a crew to my farm recently for photos because they’re going to feature my Project F.A.R.M. (First-class American Rural Made) in their November issue. Make sure your subscription to More magazine is current!

I will be one of 10 innovators featured who have found ways to create jobs for women. Next summer you can vote for the job genius whose work impresses you most. The winner will get a boost from More magazine: $20,000 donated to her organization.

Our photographer was on hand to capture their photographers in action. I especially loved the “groomer” they sent. My comment after their photography crew left? “Wow, my coat is so shiny and healthy-looking now.” What woman wouldn’t love being preened (queen) for the day?

  4. Miss Mary Jane, you’ve got my vote! Since the day I ‘accidentally’ came across your magazine while waiting for a return flight, I immediately connected with your farm-sense which was not just passed on, but taught, to me by grandparents who raised families during the Great Depression. Although I was a ‘city kid’ because I lived on the edge of town (pop. 210 if counted on a major holiday), my childhood was mostly spent on the farms of my friends or in 4-H meetings. Even now, though my grandparents have passed on and I live near a very large Texas city, I remain inspired by the principals of good stewardship and lending a helping hand that are so beautifully depicted in your magazine. Thank you, Miss Mary Jane!

    Wow, that looks like a lot of work and fun, too. I just voted for you on the vote page. I’m very glad to find out about all these amazing women, too. I’m going to find out more about them. It’s very encouraging to see all of you there, and get a glimpse of what you all are doing for women and the world. Thank you.

  6. Congratulations Mary Jane. I have been inspired by you for a few years now after visiting one of your shops. And the magazine is fabulous. I always think it is excellent when “mainstream” culture acknowledges agriculture. After all. . . wiithout food. Best of luck.
