I want to preface this with the fact that I live in a suburban area known as the North Shore of Long Island. That would be the Nawth Shaw of Long Guyland if you buy into that whole stereotypical dialect thing.
I do not.
This magazine was at the checkout of our local Whole Foods. Modern Farmer? Really? Talk about missing the demographic! There are no farmers in this ‘hood – modern or otherwise. The only thing better than this close-up shot would have been one with a woman dressed to the nines in front of the magazine rack. Keep in mind this particular Whole Foods is across the street from The Miracle Mile, a Rodeo Drive style shopping area.
You’ve heard the expression, “It goes together like donkeys and Manolo Blahniks“, right? Of course, everyone has.
At first I thought this was an Onion type magazine. With that Headline: Donkeys, the new goats. And the Redonkulous seal (with an excellent use of hyphenation)
Other wonderful headlines that are a bit more relatable for this zip code:
- Pot Farming Goes Big
- How to Grow a Winter Garden (was this the follow-up to the Pot Farming article?)
- Drink Bitter Booze (while you are Pot Farming?)
I cannot, for the life of me, explain why I did not pick up a copy of this publication. I would like to point out that if you visit their website there is currently an article titled, New Year’s Resolution: Eat More Squirrel in 2015. Yep, that was definitely on my list this year! You?
“Locavores, listen up: if you want to eat non-GMO, antiobiotic- and hormone-free, lean, free range, local, healthy meat, you need to look up. Limb chicken, as squirrels are affectionately known in many hunting circles, is arguably better than grassfed beef or organic pork when it comes to planetary health.”
Affectionately, indeed. Limb chicken… I can’t.
And you are in luck, there is a recipe at the end of the article. (no I am not making this up)
I can’t wait for the spring issue!
(FYI, yes, I am pretty sure I am back)

Ha. How very Green Acres/ thepioneerwoman.com
An FYI, friends, Jesse Hirsch, who left that last comment is a staff writer for Modern Farmer. Check out the article he linked to.
LOL throughout this whole piece. Nice to see you again 😄 Not planning to hunt, cook, or otherwise seek out any “limb chicken.” ACK!
Okay. I read with interest the article and how she came to launch the magazine last April. Very cool. I may pick up a copy and leave it for my customers here in suburbia. We are getting into flower towers and how to grow greens indoors in winter.
So glad you are back!
Ann Marie is a good example of living the life you want to live.
I’ll pass on the limb chicken as well 🙂
