  1. Donna K says:

    I enjoy picking up a copy of MJ. I easily get bored with other farming mags because they keep regurgitating similar topics, but it seems you geared this just for us! It involves all the things I remember as a child on my grandmother’s farm: homemade recipes, gardening tips, craft ideas, and social networking to share stories with likeminded women. Thanks for being a little different!

  2. It feels like and old friend. You know when you don’t get to see or talk to them very often then you get together and it is just like you saw each other yesterday. That’s what it’s like when I get a chance to find your magazine.

  3. Cheri Blumenthal says:

    Love the craft projects and gardening advice. We in Iowa have a short growing season, so all new ideas are welcome. Also, appreciate no chemicals. 🙂

    I lucked out at my local used books store when I found a MaryJanesFarm magazine. Hooked from the start. Read the whole thing. I’m subscribed now, love all the heartwarming stories and the great recipe and craft ideas. I also found out that I have the Nat Geo magazine with Mary Jane’s picture in it!

  26. Lisa London says:

    Wow! It’s been 12 years, already?! Can hardly believe it’s been that long ago

  27. Terah Todd says:

    Love the magazine, haven’t subscribed yet though. Have been picking it up when I go to a bookstore in a different county as I can’t find it in my area. Would love a subscription. Thanks

  28. OH, I just LOVE this magazine. It’s my most favorite magazine in the entire universe.

    I’ve been in love with this magazine and everything it represents since the summer of 2009. I found Mary Jane’s Farm purely by “accident” or “divine providence” in the summer of 2009. I was in my local Barnes & Noble store looking for something to read. I just picked this up because I loved the front cover and I was HOOKED from the very first page.

    I found something that perfectly embodied my love of all things feminine, frilly, organic, country, rustic, vintage, retro…pretty etc….all things good 🙂 🙂 🙂 This magazine gives me the confidence that I can do things on my own and make it beautiful at the same time 😉 🙂 🙂

    I would love to win a year’s subscription…and even BETTER, the lifetime subscription. That would be so cool 🙂 🙂

    Extra special love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂

  29. Vanessa Welch says:

    I love this magazine! I have actually purchased extra issues to give away as part of birthday gifts to other women who I knew would love the articles as much as I do, and in doing so, my mother (one of the recipients) is now a subscriber!

  30. Wanda Larson says:

    I was born and raised a Farmgirl and married and traveled around with a Forest Service Guy!! MaryJanes’ Farm is my favorite magazine, it is full of inspiration and information. No matter where I go I am down on the farm! Thanks!

  31. Connie BETHEA says:

    love the crafts ,the recipes , the whole magazine !!

  32. Amy J. says:

    I’ve been a fan for years and purchased an issue here and there, but have never subscribed. I would LOVE to receive a subscription. It is full of inspiration and represents the lifestyle I strive to have. Thank you for the opportunity!

  33. Karen Witek says:

    Picked up my first issue a couple of months ago. Fantastic reading, ideas and pics!

  34. Carissa Reid says:

    I’ve been subscribing to your magazine for several years now and look forward to it so eagerly. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to renewal this summer as we are current one of the many households faced with unemployment. My gift to myself, should I not win a subscription, is to renew whenever we find ourselves once more among the working.

    In the meantime, I’m using many of the ideas in your magazine to help us get by–I’ve just recently learned how to bake the best biscuits using a homemade budget mix and your budget mix recipe issue. I’m transforming chunks of our yard into garden. And I’m cooking and freezing more homemade foods.

    Thank you for all the inspiration!

  35. Amber Boggs says:

    I only recently found out that there was a magazine. I purchased MaryJane’s Idea book, Cookbook, Life book many years ago and absolutely love it. I’d love to have your magazine!

  36. Casey Paige says:

    My mother in law found your magazine at work recently and brought it to me. I have only had time to browse through most of it, but I love it already!!

  37. Jan Floyd says:

    I love your magazine and all the information and inspiration is provides. My ex has been picking up your magazine for me knowing how much I would enjoy it. This year my kids got me a subscription. Would love the chance to win a free subscription.

  38. MJF Magazine inspires me to live a more healthful, simple, hand made life, and makes me feel connected to others who are doing the same!

  39. Denice Webb says:

    I have a subscription and love your magazine. It is so unique. Truly one of a kind with great information. Love to be a Farm girl

    Hi Mary Jane, You know why I have been a fan since you began with your very first catalog/Magazine. I love everything about what you are doing! I am still getting your magazine faithfully from the news stand at our Co-op. Mail always messed up the cover on my magazine. So Proud of you!

  47. Bev K. says:

    My sister-in-law lent me two of your magazines to read while I was recuperating from surgery. I have poured over them. Delightful! I grew up on a farm and miss the lifestyle a lot. I would love a subscription arriving in my mailbox for a year! What a gift it would be!

  48. Lori says:

    I LOVE this magazine!! It is always full of so much good stuff. I find , farm-girl things that I cannot live without. I also learned about quinoa, which I have grown to love. I look forward to finding Mary Jane in my mailbox each month.

  49. Jamie Lillethun says:

    My aunt has been reading this magazine for a couple years now, and she’s so stingy with her copies that she doesn’t share. LOL I’ve been thinking about getting one of my own and this would be great
