old countryside magazines (swap for British equivalent?)greenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
Ive just had some countryside magazines passed on to me and they are brilliant!!!! There is nothing here in the U.K with so many letters and bits in by REAL PEOPLE!!!!. We have 2 smallholding magazines in the U.K both good for technical info and animal info but not much about how people live and do things. I'm going to organise a subscription to Countryside but has any one got any old back copies they would be willing to send to England inreturn I would send old back copies Of Smallholder Magazine. We have a 5 acre smallholding(homestead) and keep goats, sheep, laying hens and fatten a couple of pigs.we love our way of life.

England! the only country I have ever wanted to visit, and you live there? Maybe I read too many novels. Do vendors still sell "fish and chips" on the streets? Oh, what romance! I have some recent back issues of Countryside (past two years), but my oldest treasure is a small collection of the "Foxfire" books. The Foxfire books were started back in the 60's. Some group went up into the hills where people had experience with doing things the "old way". These books are fasinating. I am willing to loan you these books for you to read. How long does it take for a package to go from the States to England? My real email, a first. P.S. your post doesn't sound "British" :-p
