Great escape for apartment dwellers. Want to really get out of the city? Want to take in some vast spaces and good clean living? We stumbled across MaryJane'sFarm.com out in Moscow, Idaho, yesterday and have been lost on the website all day.
While it is damn hard to find an overview, the backstory seems to be that Mary Jane Butters started a farm in Idaho over 15 years ago, and has turned it into a remarkable opportunity to become the Martha of the West: a media savy, organic farmer who writes about everything she and others do around the farm in the hopes of spreading inspiration, information and good living. Oh, and there's also a B&B with wall tents as bedrooms...
She edits a women's magazine called Mary Jane's Farm, writes a weekly syndicated newspaper column (Simply MJ), she runs an online business selling everything from bread to salsa to non-stick pans, she runs a farm school called the Pay Dirt Farm School, AND she's an organic farmer.
Enough said, just take a look. The pictures are STUNNING. (Thanks, Abbe!) MGR
