Over 500 pages consisting of 25 years of Farm Journal’s Best Recipes! Published in 1959, and updated in 1972. From the cover: “The Country Cookbook contains over 1400 recipes from some of the best cooks in the world — farm women.”
Farm Journal [magazine] was first published in March 1877 for farmers in bountiful agricultural regions within a day’s ride of the publication’s office in Philadelphia. Founder Wilmer Atkinson was a Quaker, farmer and journalist, who insisted that his publication disseminate common sense information to farmers and their wives.
When Atkinson received approving letters from beyond the Middle Atlantic states, he began aggressively to seek national circulation. A publication that started with 25,000 copies grew to 1 million subscribers nationwide by 1915. (Source)
