The Farmer’s Wife

Hello History Lovers!

I’m Elaine, a twenty-first-century farmer’s wife and lover of domestic history. I collect old cookbooks and read them like novels to piece together the history of rural women in America. I recently stumbled upon a cache of farm magazines and newspapers from the nineteen-teens through the 1930s. These publications enrich and add depth to my understanding of the lives of women living a century ago. Sharing the knowledge and insight that I glean makes up the composition of my blog. I hope you enjoy!
