Carpenter, waitress, janitor, upholsterer, secretary, milkmaid, wilderness ranger, environmental activist, entrepreneur -- the founder of MaryJanesFarm has worn many hats in her day, but none more proudly than that of modern-day farmgirl. Speaking to the farmgirl in all of us, MaryJane Butters offers a captivating introduction to the organic lifestyle, resurrects forgotten domestic arts, and shares lessons gleaned from her diverse background and two decades of life as an Idaho farmer.
Whether you simply need encouragement to embrace a more authentic, wholesome lifestyle or you're looking for guidance on building a greenhouse, chopping firewood, hosting a town event, caring for a flock of chickens, making your own butter, growing a winter salad, or choosing a water filter, MaryJane's Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook is both an inspiration and a practical road map for farmgirls of all stripes.

This book contains so much information for women who want to do things the old fashioned way, the way that maybe took more time, but meant so much more. Most of the 'projects' are simple and great to do with kids, like the sewing projects, and there's a lot of useful miscellanery. This isn't Martha Stewart stuff, she'd never get that dirty!!
