In the Barnyard: Who are Bohemian Farmgirls?

Bohemian Farmgirl is something that has evolved over years of trying to figure out how to weave all of the meaningful parts of my life together. This is what it means to me, and if it touches part of your soul then my guess is that you are a Bohemian Farmgirl too.

1. Growing a Family--First and foremost, comes family. This may be your biological or chosen family, but whomever your family includes, it's roots dig deep and provide grounding for growth above the surface of the soil.

2. Planting a Farm--Modern homesteading is a way of life for a Bohemian Farmgirl. This may include anything from a windowsill garden to acres of land, buying local and supporting small farms to growing and raising all of your food yourself, and cultivating dreams of homesteading no matter if you live in the city or country.

3. Nurturing a Creative Life--This is the heart of a Bohemian Farmgirl and what brings us all together creating a community of ideas and inspiration. Living a creative life is the wellspring of joy that provides energy to make our dreams reality, no matter what the circumstances. And we all help each other along the way.

Mary Jane's Farm Farmgirl Sisterhood

Mary Jane of Mary Jane's Farm is perhaps Queen Farmgirl.  She has started a Farmgirl Sisterhood that you can join (for $20) to connect farmgirls all over the world with each other.  I remember being a young girl and seeing ads for clubs like this one in the backs of magazines.  Boy was it fun to join!  This was before the internet and all you got for your membership was a card and maybe a newsletter.  But I felt like I belonged to a group people like myself.  Networking has come a long way with the invention of chat rooms, email, blogs, and websites. But my favorite part of The Farmgirl Sisterhood is the old school notion of  earning  merit badges just like in Girl Scouts!  You get your first badge with your membership and can earn badges for anything from knitting to kitchen know how.  I just joined and can't wait to start earning badges and connect with other farmgirls.  I invite you to join!  Visit Mary Jane online at and join the sisterhood at .  Mary Jane also publishes farmgirl books and a monthly magazine that promotes the "Everyday Organic Lifestyle".
