Life on the Farm & Other Writings by Joyce E. Franson
Originally intended to be a recording of her life for generations to come. Joyce invites readers to travel back to the old farm in Rhinebeck, New York amid the Great Depression. Joyce and the women of the farm, Mother and Aunt Sally, press on whilst enduring many hardships. A hard life no doubt, but together with faith, hard work, and a deep affection for each other's well being, they prevail. Creating a strong foundation for generations to come.

2022 " Spring Heirlooms"
The chilly breeze of the winter months has noticeably shifted to a warming haze that fills the air. The ground is becoming greener and greener as the white mounds melt away. Soon, it will be time to work the land, as we always have. To then look ahead to the harvest that will later come.
This issue embraces the land and those who work it; highlights include contributions from many Hudson Valley and Finger Lakes farmers, homesteaders, and families. Along with heritage stories from Joyce E. Franson.
