I first met MaryJane through her Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook; then her Stitching Room, Farmgirl Wisdom, and now Outpost. For those of us who love family, home, nature, and simple things, she is an inspiration. Kindred spirits immediately connect from the heart. When I saw MaryJane’s bird nests as home decor, I had to send a photo of mine. My bookshelves hold feathers, more nests, eggs, bark with lichen, fossils, and books (many of the same authors and titles shown in her Outpost book). I write, do photography, sew, and love chickens unashamedly. MaryJane has inspired me to live an authentic life with purpose, on purpose—in aprons (usually flowered, floured, and homemade).
I just ordered myself a copy of MaryJane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook—For the Farmgirl in All of Us. I think after looking over your website, there’s probably a little farmgirl in me along with all this middle-aged gardener farmboy. I’m looking forward to reading through it and ... well ... getting in touch with the farmgirl inside of me, lol! Your site is terrific and I wish you all the best!
Well, MaryJane has done it again!
I was so proud of myself because I don’t smoke, drink, gamble, do drugs, or eat meat, fish, or fowl. I’ve been ordering from MaryJane for several years and really enjoyed her Red Pesto Pasta, Nick’s Couch Potatoes, and Creamy Dill Sauce to pour over my Falafel. It was a pleasant craving and I could handle it. Now I’ve tried her Bare Burrito; Lentils, Rice, and Indian Spice; and Cheesy Noodle Casserole with Sugar Snap Peas. I have new favorites—and a problem. Do you have a 12-step group for MJF addiction? :)
To all at MaryJanesFarm,
Your products and service exceed all expectations. I found an issue of MaryJanesFarm magazine in Barnes & Noble recently, which led me to the Web—and all that is MJF. What a wonderful path to have found myself on! Within the last month, I purchased the back issues for summer porch reading, a box of assorted food products for my daughter in Florida, a gift subscription for my sister in Kansas ... and one for myself.
MaryJane’s books—Outpost, Ideabook, Stitching Room—were recently purchased at a bookstore. The era and family values MaryJane describes are similar to my growing-up years in small-town Kansas—and encourage me to keep a “farmgirl at heart” attitude. From a Kansas farmgirl now living near Boston, thank you for reminding me of life’s simple pleasures.
From my daughter Kimberly living in Tallahassee, Florida, thank you for the quality of the food items. On the busy days Kimberly is unable to leave the office, she has a choice of taskbars, oatmeal, and meals. She is totally hooked after sampling her first MJF products. From my sister, Bernice, living in Kansas, thank you for every issue of MaryJanesFarm magazine. Our phone call last night began with: “Have you received the new issue with MaryJane, Meg, and baby Stella on the cover?”
I am looking forward to introducing one and all I know to the world of MaryJane Butters!
