I read your story when I was searching for info on wilderness rangers in the Uintas Mountains. It's looking like that's how I'll be spending my summer (I was told I have a 95% chance). I'm very excited about it!! I'm also very excited about coming across your website, and will be doing a big bulk order once I find out for sure. I think you've followed your dreams, and that's wonderful. I've tried to live my life in a similar fashion. I've spent the last two years on a mountain bike touring around Asia.
Have a wonderful day!!

My name is Nancy Beaumont, I am an artist and a child passenger safety advocate (see our web site at www.saferidenews.com). I live in Edmonds, Washington about 12 miles north of Seattle. I am so glad I found you.
The Seattle Times had a small paragraph on your web site in today's paper. What a great find! I love your site, your views and your good common sense. I have sent your link to my daughters. You are warm and friendly, and the type of woman to invite over for afternoon tea — out in the back yard on a warm sunny day, a small table with white linen, and Grandma's English Bone teacups.
I feel we are all teachers and all students. Your willingness to share your views, ideas and news is wonderful. I am not fully into organic, but would like to be — where to start? Seems so overwhelming — I think you will be a wonderful source.
I have just purchased my third issue "Plateful" and love everything in it. This inspires me to keep looking for a small farm somewhere here in the mountains of Western North Carolina and do on a small scale what you are doing on a larger scale. Keep encouraging us to live a simpler life — it's a desperately needed step away from our country's dependence on fast-paced, high-tech lifestyles. Thank you for all you do. I look forward to your next issue.
I received your boxes yesterday — I felt like a kid at Christmas, I couldn’t wait to unpack and look at everything. Tonight I will have one of the meals for dinner and read through the magazines. I still can’t believe my luck for having found you guys!
Sunnily yours (I love that expression, it so matches the entire feeling I get about MaryJanesFarm in general!),
Thanks again for helping me make up my mind. I will send the Jade shoes back today and can’t wait to receive the Flora. It was really nice talking with you, it didn’t even seem like we were conducting business ...
Thanks for that story about the lady with the tiny feet. I had a hard time all my life finding shoes that fit (and that weren’t ‘grandma shoes’) and pants that aren’t ‘highwater.’ I always resented people with a size 6 or 7 that could go into any shoe store and buy whatever they liked ... I just don’t understand why companies don’t adapt to this growing number of big-footed customers?!
I was sort of shocked to hear you answer the phone when I called. I had read your name in the magazine and I couldn’t believe that I would be talking to you personally. That’s another thing that really sunk in and completed this picture I have of the farm.
Love ya right back,
(Continued in May.)
