Educating farmers since 1877, Farm Journal Magazine has been a leader in agriculture journalism for over 140 years. Focusing on all aspects of farm life from animal welfare to science and technology to the joys and challenges of the country lifestyle, this go-to publication kept families informed and updated on all the latest news.
In 1959, they published their first Country Cookbook which featured from-scratch recipes made with homegrown ingredients sourced from 80 years of the magazine's recipe archive and over 500 households across the country. That cookbook, which became a beloved favorite, paved the way for other Farm Journal cookbooks including one on pies and this one America's Best Vegetable Recipes published in 1970. Containing over 300 pages and featuring 41 different types of vegetables, this is a windfall of a cookbook for all vegetable lovers. Including over 650 recipes, this book highlights vegetables in all forms whether home-grown or store-bought, and covers all manner of preparation from canning to broiling, baking to frying, cold to hot, raw to cooked, and everything in between.
