A Farm Thought

"Hobby farmers are often among America's best land stewards; they are interested in working the land, but are not reliant on it for income." John Morgan, author for Hobby Farm magazine

Do you really like that magazine? I got an offer for it in the mail and have thought about getting it, would you recommend it? I know we don't have land yet, but it hasn't stopped me from reading Organic Gardening from cover to cover when it comes!

Andrea Cherie,
I don't subscribe to Hobby Farm. I just don't want to spend the money when I am not for sure that it is worth it. Instead, I usually look at the magazine rack when I am at our local Tractor Supply. If an issue looks good, then I will purchase a copy. I only do this upon occasion, but I always enjoy the pictures and the look of the magazine. I was at a bookstore just the other day and purchased what I thought was Hobby Farm magazine. When I got it home, it was really called Hobby Farm Home magazine. While I enjoyed thumbing through the pages, it was geared more for city people who wanted to add a bit of country to their backyards. I won't buy that again because it didn't fit my needs. Sometimes I find that magazines just spark my creativity and I glean from them in that manner. Hope this helps!
grace and peace,

If you go to the website they have lots of information for free since they put most of their articles on the web. A downside that I saw was that they didn't have a lot of information on the bigger animals specifically but they said they were going to add more info later. I still need to look around more but it certainly seemed like a decent resource!! I hope this helps!

Thanks for your two cents on it!
