Letters to the Editor from the Winter 2017 Issue

A reader talks about the magazine content of Capper's Farmer, and another reader shares an old photograph of his grandfather and a horse-drawn wagon.

Best Magazine Ever!

I grew up with Capper’s Weekly. It was the only magazine my family took. Father said it was money, or oftentimes a hen, well spent – and Mother and all eight of us children wholeheartedly agreed.

After I got married and had six children, life was busy. I never had time to sit down, relax, and read a magazine – and, oh, how I missed it.

A few years ago, I found the “new” Capper’s Farmer.



Each issue is better than the last.The articles are perfect, and the photographs are beautiful. It’s like you’re putting the magazine together just for me. I absolutely love it!
