  1. Bonny Garland says:

    I love this pillow

  2. Zoe A. Siperly says:

    I have a blue jean quilt my mother made and this pillow would go with it perfectly. Mary Jane Farms and the Glampers have made my heart full of joy and sisterhood!!

  3. It is true that “farmgirl is a condition of the heart”… for over a decade I’ve been longing to, dreaming of, and working towards moving full time to a beloved patch of rural heaven we own. It was hard enough to get it, it’s hard enough to take good care of it on a weekend-and-holiday-only occassion. And it’s CRAZY HARD to leave it each Sunday to go back to our crowded town and wonder how we’ll ever manage to make this transition. But no one can take our farm out of my heart!!!! And with my memory of every excellent moment spent there over the past decade and my imagination of what will be when my dream finally comes true, I remain a true farmgirl, even in the “stuck” places!

  4. Catherine A Grimes says:

    Worth it. It’s worth all of it. Be it day dreaming or planning next years garden while caring for a current crop. The pain is worth it.

  5. mary says:

    My main outfit are jeans, T-shirt’s and flannel shirts. I gave up dresses except for summer jumpers I made when I left working in an office. This would be so perfect in my home. Farmgirl is in my DNA and thank goodness, now I can say it’s in my grown children’s DNA! both have farms. My grandmother always said I was born in the wrong century and I believe it.

  6. Ally Gledhill says:

    Farmgirl is a condition of the heart because no matter where I am in life, whether it’s a five acre farm or tiny duplex without a yard, I know that the lessons I’ve learned from this community will stick with me. I may not have the space to do everything I want, Farmgirls are clever and I can choose to live that farmgirl life.

  7. Lorraine Hess says:

    Farmgirl is definitely a condition of the heart. I spent most of my life living in the country. Even though I now live in a small town that is rapidly growing larger I still have a good size garden we eat and preserve from and I still do a lot of crafting. Some day I would like to get back to the country but, for now, I make my escape in my camper.

  8. Carolyn Sanelli says:

    Farmgirl is a condition of the heart. I am a city girl by birth but I love to create whether it is growing my herbs, cooking a homecooked meal or creating my own gifts for family members. So would you consider me a farmgirl at heart?

  9. Kay A. Jones says:

    While reading my MaryJaneFarm magazine, I am back in my childhood with my country aunt, Aunt May. She had chickens, nursed an occasional stray raccoon, raised rhubarb, and had the most beautiful peonies on earth that would grace my mother’s dining room table. I have pictures of me as a toddler followed by her cats. I believe that is why I love cats today. My garden at my farmhouse stye home in Sunfield will have rhubarb. I have planted peonies. I can hardly wait to make stewed rhubarb and have peonies grace my dining room table in my forever home in Sunfield. God is good. Be blessed, Mary Jane.

  10. Rose Mason says:

    Sometimes daily life can become too repetitive and we find a danger of not celebrating our joy in the little things we do. The “farmgirl” attitude is the reminder to our hearts of not only who we are but to live inspired.

  11. Shelly D says:

    The magazine articles remind me of my childhood on the farm. And I have a blue jean quilt from my grandmother. This would look wonderful.

    Also want to make another quilt out of my grandfather’s jeans. I think I’ll use the same pattern.

  12. Linda Bowlby says:

    As a retired farmer’s wife and the daughter of a farmer’s daughter, I love the motivation and encouragement Mary Janes Farm brings to women of all ages, backgrounds and locations. I especially love the articles and features on lost and forgotten skills.

  13. Barbara Mangrum says:

    “Farmgirl is a condition of the heart” statement is so true. Farmgirl definitely is a girl whose heart is all about simplicity, creativity, and passion of all things on the farm growing and continuing traditions throughout the years.

  14. Ardis Boll says:

    Living in “Rural” Idaho and being a “Farm Girl” is an invaluable life; more so now that “isolation” is so important to all of us. I love Mary Jane’s Farm magazine and all she exemplifies. I have all my subscriptions saved and having retired in my first year I am looking forward to many more years of Farm Girl Attitude!

  15. Susan Pennala says:

    I think if we go back far enough, we would all find farmgirls in our lineage. Not only is it a condition of our hearts, it’s imprinted in our DNA!

  16. Dorothy J. Shaulis says:

    I live in a rural area surrounded by farmland. Farm machinery going up and down our road here are a common occurrence, as well as Amish buggies. I love the fresh, clean country air, even when they spread manure! I discovered Mary Jane’s Farm Magazine at our local quilt/sewing shop and have subscribed to it. I look forward to all the stories, articles and pictures.

  17. Lora Weber says:

    I’ve made many baby quilts for gifts. And a few larger ones too. Love to see different ideas. Love this magazine too. Im all about denim everything.

  18. Tammy Slifer says:

    That saying just means “down to earth”, we came from the earth to take care of the Earth. It is the best way to stay healthy in so many ways!! Also helps us to not forget were we came from!!! Its the roots that keep us grounded. I was lucky enough to have these kind of roots!!

  19. Nancy Frazier says:

    Farm girl is a condition of the heart means simply that. No matter your “place in life”, the type person that you are is in the heart.

  20. Maureen Justice says:

    Has made me relish the simple things and reminds me of when I was a young girl in the farm

  21. Andrea E. says:

    Farm girl is a condition of the heart- including whatever makes your heart happy! Holding onto my farm heritage whether I’m hard working outside or at the hospital- homemaking is always where my heart is!

  22. Robin D. says:

    I love the idea that regardless of where you are in the world – growing up in a small fishing village in Canada, slogging through a Master’s degree in England, teaching English in remote northern Pakistan or learning to raise a small boy on a wheat farm in Washington – a ‘farmgirl condition of the heart’ travels with you.

  23. Bev Read says:

    Denim is dear to my heart. My Mom who has been gone for 34 yrs. She wore her first pair of denim underneath a button-down skirt, as women were not allowed to even wear pants, in our town scandalous! But she wore them with pride!!! She was the heart of our family and loved red roses. I love denim too and wear them on most days. I still laugh and smile when I think of my mom, breaking the denim rules!!!

  24. Lisakay Mindel says:

    I am holding this magazine in my hand because I purchased it to get the subscription card inside. My mom LOVES your magazine so I am giving her a subscription for Mother’s Day. Looking through Mary Jane’s farm I can see why and plan on getting a subscription for myself as well. I can’t wait to make the pickled radishes from my garden and to patch the jeans I am currently wearing using the techniques in this issue. I love my mom and couldn’t think of a better gift! Thank you.

  25. Denva Corff says:

    means…to enjoy handmade, homegrown, simple things….appreciate all that God has created and find happiness in helping and sharing those in need.

  26. Karen D. Chandler says:

    I love and look forward to each new issue. It’s total quality time for just me, away from all the noise and responsibilities that I normally have. The ideas and creations and recipes are great. Just in general fun to read something interesting and important, yet soo fun to read. Thanks Mary Jane, I will be subscribing forever.

  27. MS Barb says:

    I was raised in a metropolis area, but love in the country now, and LOVE it!

  28. Ann Senge says:

    A farm girl is a condition of the heart. Even though I live on a lake, my gardening is done without pesticides, and nothing but natural fertilizer. No chemicals for my organic crops. I even make my canning labels that state from Murray Lake Gardens. If I could I’d have chickens but my lake association would not allow it. Boo..

  29. Joyce Gardner says:

    Always look forward to my next copy of your magazine. I do a lot of gardening. Can always use new ideas

  30. Amy Bassett says:

    I used to consider myself a city girl until our family bought a homestead in the countryside of Connecticut. Our happy farmhouse (300 years young!) is surrounded by rambling stone walls as we have added many animals to our farm: alpacas, beehives, chickens, and in the summertime pigs. I love being a farm girl! My soul is fed by the life-giving nature all around!

  31. winnie Jackson says:

    Love this pillow out of different shades of blue. This pillow would be welcomed with a time that we are all dealing with this awful virus keeping us from others we love and care for. It would bring me such great comfort in my life cuddling up with it. Thank you for this fantastic contest! All be well and safe, Winniei 🙂

  32. Joyce Johnsonce Johnson says:

    No matter what is going on in my life I just remember I’m a farm girl st heart.

  33. Janice Hardin says:

    As I consider this, it reminds me of my townie raised daughter, who now thrives on an Ohio farm with her family where they raise otganic grown produce She absolutely loves farm life and it takes me back to visiting my grandparents on that Oklahoma farm every summer. Thank for this delightful re-visit.

  34. Katie weekley says:

    This would be for my mom she’s been a fan of yours since the beginning

  35. Linda Bennet says:

    It’s a condition of the heart because it’s everything I love: flowers, gardens, food and fashions!

  36. Deloris Bennett says:

    “Condition of the Heart” – I am blessed to have always lived in a rural area. When I was a little girl we had pigs, chickens and turkeys. I was a little afraid of all three. I now live about 1/4 mile beyond that house (further into the hollow) and have my own chickens. I’m not an official farm girl, but I’ve been a farm girl at heart for quite a while. My garden has just been plowed and I’m anxious to get the planting started. I like to glam up my vegetable garden with flowers too (and a picnic table with a bench).

  37. Leah Hunter says:

    Farmgirl is definitely a condition of my heart. Born to a widowed Mom I was raised to be a housewife, taught housecleaning, cooking, textiles (sewing, knitting, crocheting and all things crafty) and respect for my elders. I now am also a single Mom, raising my kids on a small animal farm with all its challenges and joys! Your magazine gives me an escape into relaxation with every issue!

  38. Cary MILLER says:

    “Farmgirl is a condition of the heart” because from the first time you experience the life on a farm it is always there in your heart. I could spend summers on the farm in Idaho and then return home to the city life in California always longing for the time to be back there. It was always a dream of mine to have a little piece of land to call my own, to farm and garden and enjoy nature. Farming is in my blood. My small little piece of land is now my home. I will spend the rest of my days here on Earth working and enjoying this land. It is a true gift!

  39. Abby says:

    It’s reminded me I can stay true to my heart and nature no matter where I am or who I’m with.

  40. Rachel Frisbie says:

    I take my bit of farmgirl in the burbs and garden and try to lead an organic life.

  41. Renee Paquin says:

    I discovered your magazine by accident at my local tractor supply store. I was browsing the magazines and books for something different to read as well as some backyard gardening and canning info. I’m definitely a farm girl at heart. I was raised in the country and gardened and canned anything and everything. I even did it when I was single, for myself and the pleasure of providing for myself. Now I live southern coastal and not country but I have a great husband and a great backyard and still garden and provide for us. Your magazine is truly amazing and inspiring! I love it and it is who I am. I’m looking forward to beginning my subscription.
    And I love your denim pillow. I’m all about denim! Your pillow would be a great addition to my many pillows – and I have a lot because of my health issues! But I think your pillow was would take front and center stage to all my others, right next to the neck-pillow my grandma made me many years ago that looks like denim. It’s beautiful!
    Thanks so much for your magazine and I’m ecstatic that I discovered it!!

  42. Terry Steinmetz says:

    I got my first issue of MJF magazine starting at the Plum Issue. I instantly fell in love with it and the philosophy. It really is your heart that leads you on the paths in your life. Since then I’ve collected, read, re-read all issues. I can’t get enough of MJF! The quilt I chose for my glamper from a church auction is an hand-sewn honeycomb top made all of vintage fabrics. It is a reminder to me that though I don’r live on a farm, I can still have the heart of a farmgirl.

  43. Linda Lundgren says:

    5/27/20~I can only say that if my parents didn’t move from Nyack, NY to Glen Gardner, NJ in 1961 when I was 11 THAT I WOULDN’T have become a farmgirl, so to speak. From a “city girl” to living in the “boonies,” as my NY friends and relatives used to say, living right next to a dairy farm was perfect! Made a younger friend there and STARTED WORKING, helping out with herding the cows in the old pickup (no license either!!) and on the horses; driving tractors around plowing fields, doing all the haying, oats and corn too. Best part were the farm lunches AND coming in sometimes seeing friend’s mother making homemade dough for the apple dumplings! Man they were good. (When I make them to this day, think of her). This hexagon pillow may represent all that you wrote, but it just feels comforting and restful to me. I know I was always beat after working and slept like a baby!

  44. Kathy Seery says:

    All I can say is everything about this magazine makes my heart happy! Which is the best “condition of the heart” I can think of.

  45. Jessica Kaufmann says:

    Farmgirl is condition of the heart it is true. Once you have tasted it, you can never forget it or long for it. I grew up a farmgirl on 120 acres of pure bliss as a young girl. Everyday was a new adventure with the animals or the garden. Every night I went to bed, exhausted and satisfied. “Farmgirl” gets into your blood and your heart and you either live completely satisfied in it, knowing there is nothing better, or you long for it knowing what you are missing. Now that I have children, I long for them to have a similar idealic childhood on a farm, as I did. To have animals and endless fields to adventure in and dream tangible and make believe dreams and experience life in the dirt, with it beneath your fingernails and in your very soul; that is living life to the utmost.

  47. Cynthia Robb says:

    Love the Farm Girl ideology – even though I live in the suburbs. It’s helped me to broaden my outdoor horizons, even though – truth be told – I’m more comfortable indoors. But I love cooking and crafts and love seeing those topics in your magazine.

  48. winnie Jackson says:

    growing up in a rural town of Lebanon, CT I can relate to farmgirl Oh how wonderful memories to recall. I recall the farm smells, walking barefooted, eating rhubarb right from the plant at my great-grandmothers land. Everyone should have the experience of farm living, especially children of this world today. People who have not experienced this life don’t know what they are missing. From one farm girl to another, winnie 🙂

  49. Carol Krygoske says:

    I have enjoyed your health articles and hand craft ideas for years. I have given your magazine as gifts I enjoy it so much myself.

    Living in Quarantine, It really helps to escape & take our minds to the wonderful outdoors ❤️

    • 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:

    When I receive my magazine in the mail, I know it’s my time. I can set with a cup of tea and relax. I am a busy Grammy of five and I also hobby farm I am inspired by the magazine! Thank you so much for all you do!

  8. Bonny Garland says:

    I was told by a friend about a wonderful magazine that she had fought at the local book store. I bought a copy and have loved it ever since.

  9. Jill Judge says:

You truly do inspire me to get outside, eat and cook healthy, try new crafts, and to be a feminine woman. Thank you for all you and your family do. God bless you.

  11. RoDonna Carson says:

    I’ve been reading your magazine for many years and have been a part of Farmgirl sisterhood too. My mom and I share your magazine. Thank you for everything. I enjoy reading and being a part of the farmgirls.

  12. Zoe A. Siperly says:

    I need a new quilt for my bed, I now have one of Mary Janes quilts on my bed, but it’s time for a new one and my bedroom is blue… perfect match!!

  13. Deb Morris says:

    It’s a great escape from the virus and from daily work from home life!

    • Nancy Dickinson says:

      I seen your magazine in a store and something on the cover caught my eye. So I bought the magazine. 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!

  16. Eileen Osika says:

    I’ve been a subscriber for about one year. I always look forward to receiving my next copy. Love the articles and beautiful pictures!

  17. I’ve never fallen in love with a magazine so quickly and fully before! I can’t wait for my subscription to arrive in June! I ordered one for my sister also.

  19. Lorraine Hess says:

    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.

  23. Kathy Wolfe says:

    My cousin turned me onto your magazine. I have been a subscriber since almost the beginning. I love denim in any way it is used and my bed is a queen size. Please pick me!!!

  24. Lisa Whaley says:

    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.
    Lisa Whaley

  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.

    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.

    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.🥰

    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.

    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. ❤️

    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.

    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. .

    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.

    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!!!!!!

    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.

    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!!!!

    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.
