The Farmer’s Wife Cookbooks

Serve up a piece of the past as you savor the flavor of farm kitchen cooking! Long before the Internet and high-speed travel connected us all, The Farmers Wife magazine gave hard-working rural women a place to find and share advice about everything from raising chickens to running a farm kitchen.

All of the recipes in the following four cookbooks first appeared on the pages of The Farmer’s Wife magazine. The classic recipes in these cookbooks have been adapted for the needs of the modern kitchen, but they still preserve the flavor of a life dedicated to feeding not just the family, but also the nation.

All four have spiral binding allowing the books to lay flat when open.
