    Mother Earth News, CountrySide and Mary Janes Farm. We also get Backyard Poultry (no homesteading, but definitely a related component).

    Quote:Same here. Once in awhile I pick up a copy of Backwoods or Backyard Poultry. Also buy HobbyFarm on occasion. My mother gets Mary Jane Farm but that magazine comes across as a bit self-righteous to me, like you're going to die if you don't use their recipes.

    Mother Earth News, but I pick up Hobby Farms often. My subscription to Organic Gardening just ran out, not sure if I will renew. I had seen an Urban Farmer magazine once, and I'd like to check out another issue to see if I want it before I subscribe - just haven't been able to find it! Possibly I'm remembering an incorrect name, though.

    I've tried grit, mother earth news, and mary jane's farm but those three are too liberal for my homestead. I have a 5 year sub to Backwoods Home (Jackie Clay is my idol!) and also subscribe to Countryside. But Backwoods Home is my favorite hands down! http://www.backwoodshome.com/

    I don't get any magazines, but I love to visit Backwoods Home's website. Excellent material, especially on guns. [​IMG]

    Hobby Farms.

    I have a couple of mother earth, a grit and a hobby farm mag if anyone would like them. :) Not sure how current the first three are, but the hobby farm is just a few months old.

    I love MEN! (Get it? Mother Earth News? [​IMG]) Seriously though, I'm glad you asked because I've been trying to find some other good ones, so I'm looking forward to checking some of these other ones out.
