Hi There!!! I am brand new to MaryJanesFarm magazine. My mother recently got a subscription for me. I must say I LOVE LOVE LOVE the magzine. I haven’t tried any of the products yet but each month I’m inspired. I’ve purchased the Wild Bread book and I’m planning on trying some bread this winter. Would love to try budget mixes! Thanks so much!

Congratulations, Lorna! Watch for an email from the farm.

    I would most likely bake a nice warm bread that I would slice into single serving sizes to be used in our parish soup and cookie brown bag gift we give during the winter months to our shut-in parishioners to let them know they are not forgotten and are still in our prayers. Our parish (Sacred Heart Church) is in a small town with no stoplights called Chazy, NY just 7 miles northeast below the Canadian border. Hope to hear from you all and God Bless you!!!!

    I just read your Magazine and I love to bake and am inspired to try both of your Budget Mixes for Wild Bread and four of Budget Mixes.

  28. Bonnie says:

    I haven’t bought any yet. Each issue of your magazine inspires me to “get going” on my journey to get back to my farm roots. So I want to start baking again, like I did when my kids were little.
    I’m 75 and live in a small mobile home in a mobile home park so my yard is small.
    I’m planning my garden for my hillside spot that worked so well 2 years ago.

  29. Dale Card says:

    I have only tried your original at my friends house. Really enjoyed it and would make baking much easier !!

  30. Ann Andersen says:

    Whike I haven’t tried any of your budget mixes yet, I look forward to trying them in the future. Your recipes in your magazine not only look yummy, they remind me of true comfort food.

  31. ida settlemyer says:

    Perfect for small households!
    And fresh ingredient! Love the smell when I open the package!

  32. Connie Clevidence says:

    I love that they are organic. All your recipes using the Budget mix look like they took a long time to make!

  33. Linda H says:

    Quick! Easy! And super convenient!

  34. Cindy Siemsen says:

    I have bought your Chillover powder for making jam. It makes the flavor of my strawberry rhubarb jam stand out without the flavor I usually get from using sure jel.

  35. Phyllis I says:

    We go way back as I purchased your Backcountry Ecocuisine from your, “newsprint paper” catalog 1999 edition. I still have the catalog! You were ahead of your time with delicious, easy to prepare, and best of all, organic backpacking meals. I recently ordered two six pack samplers, single serve meals for a kayak trip, from your magazine this time!
    I’m looking forward to trying your budget mix for coffee cake, garlic knots, oh just about everything vegetarian.
    I wish I could attach a picture of the catalog, but I don’t seem to have the technical ability. Warm regards, health and happiness.

    • MaryJane says:

      That’s amazing. Why just today, I pulled out my only copy of that catalog so I could take a picture of it for our new website that Cydnie and I have been working on for several months. I am just so very pleased to meet you!!!! And to be able to thank you. My word, I still can’t believe we’ve found someone who has been with us for so long. Please know how very special this is for us.

  36. Lisa Poynter says:

    First, I love the the ingredients and the ease of use…

  37. Taffy Troup says:

    I’ve never had any of the Budget Mix choices. I’m recently gluten free for health reasons so am excited that I have a place to purchase the GF mix and use it for REAL tasting foods. The foods in the grocery are just blah! Love your magazine…new to it and have subscribed!!

  38. sue says:

    One look at the pictures and recipes in your magazine were enough to make me want to try the mix. Thanks so much!
