    • Madison says:

      My Grandma received your magazine for a long time, and I would always steal her copies when she was done with them. Well when we moved away to Wyoming I decided it was time to subscribe myself, and I haven’t looked back since!

  4. Ruth Turner says:

    I love, LOVE your magazine and have been subscribing to it for several years! I grew up on a farm, raised by parents who also each grew up on a farm. In fact, my dad farmed family land that had been in our family since the 1760s! We were the last family members to farm it ourselves. We leased it when Daddy was no longer able to farm it. So, farming is running through our veins! We understand the work ethic, getting dirty more than clean, the pride in doing well in it, and what incredibly special memories we now have! Your magazine is a monthly reminder of how much I loved it, and I enjoy every issue so very much! Thank you for sharing about a lifestyle that has unfortunately become endangered. I pray it’ll be one of the catalysts to inspire other families to become a part of it!

  5. Leisa Perrotta says:

    My mom gave me your Idea book 10 or so years ago, and I’ve been a fan ever since.


    Many years ago I took my mother to her Dr. Appt. There was Mary Janes Farm read the whole thing could not put it down and asked if I could take it, they said yes so the next day I subscribed that was about 10 years now and still can’t wait till the next issue comes out wishing they came every month.
    Definitely anxiously awaiting for the next issue.
    Thank you for the joy that you bring.

  7. Monica says:

Then I would buy another one and after doing this for awhile I decided to subscribe to the magazine. Been a subscriber for awhile now. Like the magazine. Its always interesting to see what will be in the issue.

  14. Ann Cross says:

    I love your magazine, love all the tips. Always something to check out online. It’s just what I’m in to.
    I’ve been getting your magazine since I stumbled on it online, my subscription was when the magazine started to be bi-monthly. After my first issue I ordered all the previous issues which were in bundles. I still have those issues. Also have 4 books.

  15. Ally Gledhill says:

    I’ve renewed my subscription! I’ve been reading (and saving) all copies since April/May 2012! In fact, I just used the pizza dough recipe from that very first issue!

    I found your magazine while in a Tractor Supply store about 15 years ago. I haven’t missed a copy since then. It is my most favorite magazine and I save every copy. This would go great in my camper.

  20. I am not a farm girl but remember my Great Grandparents on their farm some 70 years ago. Was thrilled with the memories your magazine brings back.

  21. Carolyn Sanelli says:

    I was visiting my son and his new wife and we visited a Rural King store. I saw your magazine in the store and I was intrigued. I was immediately hooked.

  22. Mauri Ordway says:

    My mom showed me your magazine years ago and have been in love with it ever since. I save them. They are too precious to throw away. Thank you for creating such a great magazine.

    I stumbled onto to Mary Jane’s Farm magazine accidentally when I bought a stack of old ones at a yard sale… ( why would someone sell them I have no idea?)….needless to say, after I looked through my new found treasure, I got my own subscription and needless to say I’ve never let my subscription lapse.

  25. Tanya McElfresh says:

    I moved to Lewiston, Idaho from Texas/Oklahoma (right on the Red River Border!) in 2003. We bought back packing food from your farm. We LOVED the quality of the foods,and ease of preparation. We visited the coop farm and fell in love. Shortly after that you had the magazine and books! We visited the first Camping event,the flour mill,and the glamming tents. What a wonderful clean lifestyle and fun things to do !!!

  26. Kathy says:

    I’m planning this years garden – wondering where I can possibly squeeze in more tomatoes and veggies. One of the reason I subscribe to Mary Jane’s farm is reading articles like “10 Surprising Health Benefits of Gardening. Thanks

  27. Jane Corn says:

    I love all things about country living. I like to can some, sew some, plants and flowers. So when I saw your magazine offered by the publisher clearinghouse, I thought I would give it a try. It does have some advertising in it, but other magazines seem like they have an ad on every other page. It is a joy to read.

  28. Tina Savage says:

    One of your magazines was left in a room by an ER patient in Madras Oregon where I was working as a travel nurse. On my break I got a chance to look through it that was all it took, love at first look. I now have a subscription and allow myself cover to cover time when it arrives.

  29. Linda Kuipers says:

    I am reading the latest issue of your magazine and was totally fascinated by the article about Red Lipstick’s Revolutionary Roots. Susan B Anthony is a 4x removed cousin of mine and I try to save all articles pertaining to women fighting for equal rights. It is fun to read about different ways women used to come together as sisters in equality. That is the main focus of your magazine – bringing women together in a common cause – and it is much appreciated. Thank you for all the women you include in your magazine through stories and authors. the craft section is also fun to read. Thank you

  30. Rose Mason says:

    This magazine was a going away gift from a dear friend. Pay it forward! Since we are both in our late 70s, we are happy to remind you that this magazine truly is for all ages.
    The love of home and nature is universal. Thank you for sharing your life, family and friends with us.

  31. Debbie Noyola says:

    My best friend got me a subscription to your magazine because she knows how much I love to craft & am a country girl through & through! She said the magazine should be called: Debbie Jean’s Farm. Sounds good to me. Ha. But seriously I love this magazine & keep every single copy.

  32. Jill Judge says:

    My husband and I clean a Senior Living Club House, someone donated their copy of your magazine about 5 years ago. It was right up my alley! I read it cover to cover, found the subscription card and every year since for Christmas my husband renews my subscription! Thank you, jill

  33. Shelly says:

    This magazine was a gift subscription from my mom.

  34. Sharon Gough says:

    I have been receiving your magazine for about a year or more. I liked it so much I bought a gift subscription for a friend. Now we both enjoy your creative ideas and recipes.
    P.S. Thank you for including GF recipes!

  35. Barbara Mangrum says:

    Purchased first copy of your magazine off the shelf. Subscribed and have been subscribing since. Love it so much, I give a gift subscription to my daughter every year. My husband even likes to look. Once he took an issue about raising honey bees to church to share with guy that raises bees. He had told him about the article in conversation, and decided to take him the magazine. Great articles in every issue. Keep it up!

  36. Carmen Witmer says:

    MaryJane, it’s been such a blessing to me to have your magazines in my life for the past few years. I’m 40 now, and ever since I was a little girl, I’ve known that my heart yearned for experiences and memories of the quality kind. Growing up in rural PA I watched every episode of Little House on the Prairie and felt that I was born in the wrong era. I’ve combed through shelf after shelf in many stores looking for the right country magazine to captivate me and bring a feeling of satisfaction but they all disappointed, until I found MaryJane’s Farm. I homeschool four wonderful children with such discipline that I forget to enjoy the simple moments I should embrace, but when I pull out an old issue of your magazine I am humbly reminded of the importance of each and every moment happening now, and even those that happened in the lives of the women of my childhood. I’m so thankful for this magazine that you’ve put together and the writers that contribute, who tell my story in such artistic and hilarious ways.

  37. Susan Pennala says:

    A few months before my mother passed away, my husband and I happened to find our dream home in the country up for sale. Directly across the dirt road lives my mother’s sister, Auntie Judy. She’s been a wonderful mentor for me and a surrogate grandma for my young kids, especially in my mother’s absence. She shared an issue of MaryJane’s Farm with me about a year ago, and I loved it from the start! Now when I receive my own magazine in the mail, I wait till the house is quiet and the kids are asleep, and I savor every page.

  38. Jill Yeomans says:

    I picked up your magazine 4 years ago, and fell in love. I am a So. Cal. girl, but raised in the rural foothills, with chickens, horses, goats and a giant vegetable garden. Even lived in a Teepee for 3 years, hauling water and using gas lamps. Too many fires have burned the ranch, but I still garden and and bake. I cherish Mary Jane’s Farm, and read it the moment I receive it. After a few months, and many reviews of the magazine, I pass it on to like-minded friends. Recycle and share, I’m a MJF girl.

    Thank you for bringing me such joy.

  39. Joyce Parrish says:

    I happened upon your magazine, Mary Janes Farm, about 6 years ago. I work part time at a fabric store and my boss gave me one. She sells them and got me hooked.

  40. Donna Stone says:

    I have been getting your magazines for about 15 years and love everyone. When I got my first chickens I named a Buff Orpington MaryJane after your magazine.🥰

  41. Brenda S Frank says:

    I have been buying your magazine off and on for years. I found it in my local tractor store. I currently have a subscription that was gifted to me by girlfriend for Christmas. Girlfriends always know what makes you happy.

  42. Carol Gibson says:

    My Mom, Mary Jane, was a farm girl who had to quit school because her father needed help on the farm when World War II started and her brothers enlisted. I ordered your magazine in her honor. ❤️

  43. Cindy Manicke says:

    I hv your magazine because I am basically a farm girl. I was always playing outside, riding horses..always attracted to families with lots of kids and animals. I was a city girl brought up in Eugene, Or. I loved camping. I met my husband to be in Bellevue, Wa. His folks had a apple orchard in Pateros, Wa. Alot of work, but we had fun snapping beans, I learned to can everything for my family. Half acre of garden. Every kind of fruit. We lived in Goldendale, Wa. We had a huge garden and I froze and canned everything. Really hot there, dry land wheat.

  44. Carolynn Neely says:

    Hi, I actually found this magazine by accident, My husband is a retired police officer who worked at his cousins dairy farm since he was a kid. One day I went to Tractor Supply with him. Honestly I don’t remember what he was there for but I was bored, so I went looking for cards and magazines this was the first one I picked up I started looking through it standing in the aisle reading through I was fascinated and hooked. I would go there just to buy this magazine now I’m a subscriber and our youngest is a police officer, married with 2 babies. He just recently bought a farm about 20 minutes from here . His dad took him to “the farm” from the time he was 2 hes now 37, his wife is a nurse and he wants to raise his boys the way he was raised even though it wasnt our farm. He loved every minute . Now my husband goes to our sons “farm to be”. and to auctions buying equipment they’ll need. Its has come full circle and we couldn’t be happier for him. I’m so sorry I just told you about our whole life. Truth is I’m learning so much from your magazine and look forward to every issue. .

  45. Lora Weber says:

    I’m a subscriber of this fabulous magazine.

  46. Linda Rogers says:

    The first time I held your magazine in my hands was back in 2013 with the Dec/Jan issue. It had the burlap wreath on the front. From that point on I was an avid reader of this magazine and gave been subscribed to it from that issue. I always find something intriguing to make or cook. I always look forward to the next issue and can hardly wait for it to arrive. We have always been involved with the farm related life. Our kids went through the FFA program and went on to receive their American Farmer Degrees.
    Thank you for such a tremendous magazine.
    I absolutely love the current Denim line you now gave.
    Linda Rogers

  47. Tammy Slifer says:

    My mother has bought me this subscription as a gift!! LOVE, LOVE THESE MAGAZINES !!!! So when this runs out, i will definitely be buying more!!!!!!

  48. Stephanie Ogle says:

    I discovered your magazine several years ago and look forward to reading each issue. I also gift it to two other family members for Christmas presents. I was raised on a farm and many of the articles remind me of those days and past family members. Growing up on a farm teaches one many beneficial skills that aren’t always recognized until later in life. Of course, a big part of farm life is denim. Denim is simple, comfortable, durable, useful, decorative, and, of course, it may be repurposed. I was very excited to see the new bedding you are offering is denim. There are so many useful tips in your magazine, interesting stories, cool pictures, craft ideas, and delicious recipes. Thank you for producing such a beneficial magazine.

  49. Renee Pontious says:

    I love each month getting my MaryJane magazine. A subscription that has been worth every penny. Now with the June/July copy, I’m sitting with a glass of iced tea instead of coffee!!!!

  50. Rebecca McCoy says:

    I don’t remember where I first discovered Mary Jane’s Farm but I was hooked. I’ve read every issue for about 15 years and get excited when it shows up in my mailbox. I always learn something and enjoy trying new things.
