    This came across as an advertisement & for the first time ever I took a shot & it is amazing. Absolutely informative, and educational. If you’re interested in the concepts, new to the country life or living it there is something everyone can take away.
    Get a subscription, you won’t regret it.

    I was gifted a subscription to this magazine, and I absolutely love it! I’m thrilled each time I receive an issue. I am renewing the subscription as I cannot now bear to be without it. This magazine is far superior than most on the market in both presentation and material. Thank you for a fine publication. Much appreciated!

    Absolutely LOVE that magazine, every issue puts hope back into my heart

  15. Marcy Finney

    Oh my! I have received my first issue and read it from cover to cover. There is so much information within the pages of this magazine. There was a special section on Elderberries. I’m going to try the recipes since we have many Elderberries that grow wild. This is the type of magazine you save for years as a reference. For anyone on the fence about ordering, DO IT!

  16. P Chiccarine

    Great magazine. Love the variety. Takes me back to my childhood running thru the woods. I have already used many of the things I have learned. !!

  17. Michelle Lemaire

    Wonderful magazine. Very informative and great stories too.

  18. Robert

    Have been reading articles on the magazine web site for several years. Decided it was time for subscription.

  19. Wendy O’Neill

    Backwoods Home is an investment. These magazines have so much practical information and plenty of interesting articles. The only way this magazine could improve is to become a monthly publication! Buy a subscription for yourself and buy gift subscriptions for your family and friends so you don’t have to loan out your copies and risk never getting them back.

  20. Lauren Byler

    I absolutely love this magazine! There is always something that is useful and applies to me and my family!

  21. C Barnes

    I got this magazine primarily for tips on raising chickens, but I have found so much more within its pages. Thank you for a wholesome and helpful magazine!

  22. Brandy Riley

    Super packed with all kinds of interesting articles and info! My husband and I grew up in families who taught us nothing as far as these life skills are concerned and we have chosen to escape the city, move to the country, and homestead as much as we learn how to. This magazine is amazing! Worth every penny! Plus beautiful and captivating pictures and we love that it’s in print for us to touch, feel, and smell the pages (vs reading from the internet). Thank you for continuing this amazing magazine that my farm raised friend told me about! We love it!

  23. Stacie L Bailey

    This magazine and the sister magazine, Self-Reliance, are the only two print magazines we still subscribe to. Not only do we subscribe but we read them cover to cover and keep them in our library for future reference. These contain great articles written by people who are actually living the life. And I love the cover art!

  24. George Price

    Great magazine !! I look forward to each issue
