The New Pioneer Magazine was created in 2010 and comes out four times a year. It covers a wide range of self reliance and homesteading subjects: gardening, food preservation, hunting, alternative income streams, tools, survival, eco-building, energy independence and much more.

The magazine is available in print or digital subscriptions. Do not look for a website, they only have a Facebook page where they put scanned copies of some articles.

They are published by Harris Publications who publishes many other magazines such as the Farmer's Almanac, and Quilt Magazine.

You can subscribe to their magazine here

The part about "permaculture gardening" mentions me, and there is even a sidebar about me!

And there is an article about butchering pigs by the farmstead meatsmith guy. Lots of good pictures.

I was able to score a copy at Barnes and Noble today.

They sent me two copies about six weeks ago with a note saying something about how they like me, and they hope I like them! I browsed the two issues they sent and thought - yeah, this is good!

.... I just went through this issue that talks about me. I thought I would relay subscription price and phone number but I couldn't find anything in the magazine about subscribing. I guess you just have to buy it one copy at a time.

They should have it at Chapters if it's at Barnes&Nobles. Paul as for the commentators we wanna let ya know our household loves your sense of humour. It keeps the monotony at bay and keeps us ADD folks interested

I think the is the first time I have seen a magazine that does not do subscriptions. They only wanna sell it on the shelves. And there is pretty much nothing on-line.

When I open any magazine, I fully expect that the good ones will have one article I am interested in. A really good one will have two or three. This one has


1) intro to permaculture - YES! SPREAD THE INFO!

2) paddock shift stuff, including RABBITS as a colony style

3) a geothermal system for hundreds of dollars instead of thousands

4) solutions to farm pond problems

5) process a pig (you can see a picture the hams aging in his kitchen)

6) cooking fireside (I never thought of that refective spit)

7) build a bird bistro (Abe said he is gonna do this and put a fence around it to see what ends up growing there)

scrap heap helpers (two really cool ideas there)

I think there are probably five to ten more that others will like but are not so interesting to me.

Sounds like I will need to find a retailer in the Seattle area.

They must be trying to keep expenses down by eliminating the 'home office'.
Too bad - they're also keeping sales down.

Xisca, On the order page, the drop-down boxes had options for country, so I think you would be able to get them.

The most recent issue has a huge article about the permaculture playing cards!

And they sent me this and told me it was okay to share!

I hope they sell lots of issues this month because people want to encourage this sort of article!

Too bad they have no digital version, shipping doubles the price for me. :/
