I really like this magazine. Sure, it's about as deep as any other glossy pub, but it's a great intro to the rural life that many people are looking for. Pretty farm-porn pictures too. Not my #1 source for intensive information, but a good basic-info read for $5. Introduces people to a lot of ideas in an attractive way. The writing is clear and accessible.
I feel the same way about Mother Earth News. I read both of these c2c.

Only if there's a cover article that catches my eye. I much prefer Mother Earth News, Countryside, Backwoods Home, or BackHome, all of which I read regularly.
Backwoods Home and Countryside articles are usually or always written by readers who are actually doing what they are writing about, rather than journalists. Jackie Clay at Backwoods ought to be required reading for anyone working on food self-sufficiency, including foraging and hunting.
