Many of my friends are now avid Haooby Farm Home fans, both those from the city & country are enjoying your publications in Manitoba, Canada. After I circulated to family & friends the January/Fenruary 2013 issue where you featured my contribution on pages 6 & 7, they all started to search the newstands for copies of your magazines! They are impressed with the content that both the country & city people can use. Thank you! Lorna Wall www.wall2wallsheep.com

I find this site to be a little over whelming at first, but after spending some time looking around I am able to find things. However it's not very easy, otherwise I do like coming here to be educated on the different farming ideas.Keep the information coming!!
