Great Magazine

I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your magazine. Growing up in the 1960s and ’70s, it was a great deal of fun to visit the small Oklahoma town where our farmer relatives lived. We stayed at my grandparents’ house, and they always had the Capper’s Weekly, along with a few other farm magazines.

It was with great happiness that I rediscovered your magazine a couple years back at my local grocery store. I’m glad you brought it back – and I love the new design.

Thanks for a great magazine. Keep up the good work.

Learned to Read With Your Magazine

I love your magazine. I’m 84 years old, and I’ve seen many changes in the publication through the years. At age 31⁄2, my mom used the Capper’s Weekly to teach me to read. I miss my parents and the country lifestyle, but I’m so pleased to still have Capper’s Farmer in my life.
