  1. How great an edition or addition!
    We are just going to get our South African Boar goat bred Feb 1.
    We have had nannys before and are looking forward to it again. We love the milk and cheese.

  12. This is wonderful! The photography is beautifully done. The information is helpful, and the overall feel is simplistically luxurious in its farm edge. Congratulations!

  13. 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!

  14. 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! :)

    • I agree! I also thought that one of the proper names for a goat ‘herd’ was quite appropriate. Yes, goats are a ‘trip’!

  21. 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
      • 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
      • Is there a way to download the premier issue? It doesn’t seem to have a way to do that one.

        Reply
        • 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!

  24. Haven’t had a chance to “really” read YET but look forward to doing so. 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.

  25. 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.

  26. 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!

  27. 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
    • Yes, all the older issues will still be available online once the new ones come out!

  46. 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!

  47. 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.

  50. 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!!!

  51. Can you make the first edition a downloadable PDF like the second? I’d love to put it on my Kindle.

    Reply
    • 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

  52. 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!!!!

  53. 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
  54. 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
    • 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.

    • 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.
