~ The Farmer's Wife... November 1936

November - 1936

"...The Farmer's Wife magazine, a monthly published in St. Paul, Minnesota, from 1905 to 1939, was the sole agricultural periodical pitched entirely to farm women, and its visibility was considerable: it had well over one million subscribers nationally by 1930, with readership estimates reaching as high as five readers for every copy...." 

Above quote from here.... 

I love these old Farmer's Wife magazines. If you ever stumble across them in your adventures... and they are cheap... BUY THEM!  Well worth the investment to have the opportunity to read them.

Did you know that someone has taken recipes from them and published them? They are good.
