I spent 10 minutes trying 🙁 Reply admin on January 30, 2013 at 9:32 am Susan, Try this link: http://snack.to/ft3ab9nh Reply Erin on January 31, 2013 at 11:14 am Really want to read this but I can’t get it to work on my IPhone either, tried the link above.

Really enjoyed the articles and beautiful pictures. Can’t wait for the next edition. Reply Emily on January 30, 2013 at 10:14 am This is wonderful! The photography is beautifully done. The information is helpful, and the overall feel is simplistically luxurious in its farm edge. Congratulations! Reply The Modern Homesteader on January 30, 2013 at 11:21 am I’m impressed! This is a wonderful magazine: very informational and fun to read, in addition to being well laid out and beautiful!I want to thank you, not only for the great read, but also for featuring my pin cushion in the Sewing Section of your magazine. It’s much appreciated and I hope I can participate again in the future!Thanks so much! Awesome job well done! Reply Lauren on January 30, 2013 at 12:25 pm Will this be available for iPad? Great read for sure. I love the quote “Chickens are the gateway drug to a farming lifestyle” it is so true! 🙂 Reply laura little on January 31, 2013 at 9:15 am I agree! I also thought that one of the proper names for a goat ‘herd’ was quite appropriate. Yes, goats are a ‘trip’! Reply Edna on January 30, 2013 at 4:21 pm What a magical afternoon I have spent recovering from pneumonia and reading this really delightful magazine…didn’t fall asleep once. Can’t wait for the next one! Reply Denise on January 30, 2013 at 4:23 pm EXCELLENT!!!! Our wait was worth every minute, congrats!!!!!!!! Reply Sarah on January 30, 2013 at 5:23 pm Great first edition! Can’t wait to dive into the next one! Of course I will be rereading this edition in the meantime. Reply Tammy on January 30, 2013 at 7:03 pm Very nice first edition. Is there a way to save it for future reference (or did I overlook that)? Reply Kristen on January 30, 2013 at 8:04 pm Thoroughly enjoyed pouring over the first issue. Can’t wait for the next one! Reply Mary Rives on January 30, 2013 at 11:58 pm Thank you for the great issue! I even got some new web resources. Looking forward to next month! Reply ML on January 31, 2013 at 8:52 am Is there a way to download the issue so I can read it without having to be online? A PDF of the magazine would be great. That way I could also keep specific articles.Thanks for a great magazine!! Reply Melissa on January 31, 2013 at 5:27 pm You can download a pdf by visiting http://www.fromscratchmag.com/magazine/ Reply Trish on February 4, 2013 at 11:25 am Thank you for the PDF Format! Now I can print the articles I want to keep in front of me…yes, I still like the “paper”. Reply Elyse Noland on December 3, 2013 at 12:23 pm Is there a way to download the premier issue? It doesn’t seem to have a way to do that one. Reply Melissa on December 5, 2013 at 1:32 am We’ll be posting all the pdfs on our website soon. We’ve just completed compiling the pdf files for each issue. It should be up, barring any complications, by the end of the week. If you are subscribed, you’ll be notified when that happens. We’ll also post a notice on our Facebook page. Thanks for reading! Reply The Modern Homesteader on February 3, 2013 at 12:19 am Great! I love that the PDF is available. Again, great job guys and gals! This magazine is a wonderful read! Thanks! Reply Joanne Semanie on January 31, 2013 at 9:14 am Great first edition. Nice photography, good information. I look forward to coming editions and am passing along the website. Thanks! Reply Vicki B. on January 31, 2013 at 9:20 am Awesome photography and content! Shared it on Facebook.

As stated before…they photos are beautiful and it appears to be an interesting, thoughtful magazine. Have been forwarding the info to others whom I think will enjoy. GREAT WORK. Reply Kay on January 31, 2013 at 10:13 am Just got the first issue and it was even better than I had expected. I have forwarded the link to my friends because I am sure they will love it too. Is there a way to print out a page. I would love to have a print out of the germination chart to keep with my seeds. That is the best one I have seen. Reply Melissa on January 31, 2013 at 5:25 pm You can download a pdf of the magazine by visiting http://www.fromscratchmag.com/magazine/ – follow the directions at the bottom of the page. Reply Cheree on January 31, 2013 at 10:26 am Very enjoyable! I think I’ll now head off to the antique shop to see what I can find to dress up/characterize the coop a little more! Reply Kathryn on January 31, 2013 at 11:06 am Wonderful! I can honestly say this was the first magazine that I’ve ever read cover to cover and enjoyed every single page (I even read all the ads!). There are beautiful photos, inspiring stories and who doesn’t love recipes? Like Tammy, though, I’d like to know if we’ll be able to refer back to the older issues when the new ones come out? Reply Melissa on January 31, 2013 at 5:24 pm Yes, all the older issues will still be available online once the new ones come out! Reply Sandra Miller on January 31, 2013 at 11:48 am This is like reading a best seller but better.Keep up the great work-I absolutely love it. Reply Kim on January 31, 2013 at 12:07 pm Is this available in Kindle.. or downloadable format? Maybe a pdf? Reply Melissa on January 31, 2013 at 5:21 pm You can view it on your kindle fire.

Reply Janice on January 31, 2013 at 1:16 pm I love this magazine! I wish I could have coffee with all your writers just to ask questions, etc. Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us.

It was particularly timely for our family. Thanks for including homeschooling among your topics! Reply Beth P on February 1, 2013 at 2:10 pm This is an awesome beginning! I am going to be getting my first angora rabbits and learning to spin this year! I will also be expanding our garden beds to include more vegies. This magazine is going to be a godsend! Regards, Beth P Reply Gail on February 1, 2013 at 9:33 pm Thoroughly enjoyed reading your magazine. I appreciate all your hard work and creativity in putting it all together. How about doing an article on seed balls? Reply Kim on February 1, 2013 at 10:28 pm I just LOVE this magazine 🙂 We are looking to get more into a homesteading and self reliane lifestyle and have started with the garden and chickens… but this gives me confidence we can do more 🙂 Reply Emilee on February 2, 2013 at 10:19 am Great first issue! How long are the issues going to be archived? Indefinitely? Reply Charlie Meeks on February 3, 2013 at 8:40 am Altogether beautiful! Reply Susan on February 3, 2013 at 8:55 am Totally enjoyed your first edition and looking forward to more, love this lifestyle. Thanks. Reply Allotmenteerist on February 3, 2013 at 2:00 pm Excellent mag, I’m a very new allotmenteerist, but a wannabe smallholder living in wales , uk . Look forward to next issue. Reply gabi on February 3, 2013 at 10:28 pm Beautiful magazine! I look forward to reading it thoroughly. The “cover goat” looks just like our kinder milk goat, Keely. We just love our goats and our GOS pig family and our Saxony ducks. We are new homesteaders and are learning so much about raising our own Real Food. Kudos to you! Reply Possum Creek Herb Farm on February 5, 2013 at 10:51 am Melissa…congratulations on a job well done! It is a beautiful magazine. Thanks for getting the word out that it’s readable in just about every format. Appreciate very much being allowed to contribute a little something for the premier issue. Reply Carrie Wood on February 25, 2013 at 12:05 pm I just got your email feed of an article about making your own detergent. Can you use it in HE machines? Reply Donna Ellis on March 5, 2013 at 1:56 pm Great magazine. I love getting the emails telling me there is something new. Thanks for all you do for us “homesteader wantabees”. Reply Anne on March 6, 2013 at 5:00 pm My husband and I are both from the country, but living in the city. I LOVE this magazine. Makes me work harder to get us out of an apartment and into our own home where we can do a little more homesteading and little less lift-living. Awesome!!! Reply Ruth E. Brown on March 26, 2013 at 6:49 am Can you make the first edition a downloadable PDF like the second? I’d love to put it on my Kindle. Reply Stacey on March 27, 2013 at 10:09 am I agree, I’d like to be able to download to read on my tablet when I am not at home (wifi, no 4g).Thank you Reply Gabriella Abraham on May 6, 2013 at 5:21 pm Great Job, Melissa. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire magazine. I grew up on a small farm in Hungary and have had the yearning to go back to that simple life. My friend and I are embarking on this venture this year….thank you for this wonderful insight. peace, love, strength and kudos!!!! Reply Jolana C on May 7, 2013 at 6:57 pm Love this magazine! I want more of this in my life…homesteading! I am however having a issue being able to download this first issue to a PDF like I did with the second issue. I’ve tried the above links from other comment-ers but it doesn’t lead anywhere. Would you please be able to provide a link where I can download the file as a PDF so that I can put it on my Kindle? Please and thanks! Reply Rodney on November 10, 2013 at 11:38 pm Every issue but the first is available as a download. Yet your comments seem to suggest they should all be available. Would really appreciate it if you fixed the links so the first issue could be downloaded. Great Mag! Reply Melissa on November 11, 2013 at 11:48 pm I don’t know why that is. I’ll check with tech support and get back to you on that. Just a quick question: You are referring to the ability to download the pdf, right? Here’s the link for the flip book, if that helps. I’ll find out more about the pdf issue and let you know something. Thanks for the compliment! We really appreciate it. Also, quick note, we’ll be adding new formats next year, barring any unforeseen complications (epub, mobi, and maybe even print.) If you are subscribed to the magazine, you’ll get a note when that happens. Hopefully one of those formats will be better fit your needs. Reply Melissa on November 12, 2013 at 6:27 am Hi Rodney. I talked to tech support and found out what happened. When the first issue was created, the service wasn’t offered by the third part provider that we use to create the flip book. We’ll be updating the website soon and when we do, we’ll be sure to include a section for all the pdf’s of each issue. Forgive the inconvenience.
