This used to be an idiosyncratic publication that you could only get through means so complicated I don't even dare try to describe them here. Now it's widely available on the newsstand — I found it in the grocery store yesterday –and through a perfectly ordinary and reasonable subscription arrangement.
MaryJane Butters is an Idaho farmer who promotes, through her magazine, website, and farm (where you can come and learn about whatever aspect of farming interests you), a form of country living that involves keeping a few chickens out back, growing and canning your own vegetables, sleeping outside on warm summer evenings, and even knowing how to sew a thing or two.
It is an unabashedly girly farming magazine. I love it. I think you should subscribe.
She also sells a lot of cool stuff through her website, from packaged organic foods to camping supplies. But the best thing is the Limited Edition Teardrop Trailer, which just holds a double bed and a tiny portable kitchen. At $14 grand, it may be the best housing investment you ever make.
Seriously, MaryJane rocks. Check her out.Posted by Amy Stewart on April 3, 2009 at 8:36 am, in the category Uncategorized.
