Love Rural Living? Like These Facebook Pages!

Facebook is more than a place to share vacation pictures and reconnect with old high school friends. It’s a great tool for connecting with people who enjoy life outside the big city. Many Facebook pages share home décor, outdoor living, gardening and ranching tips you can use, whether you live on half an acre or half a million acres. We’ve researched a variety of Facebook pages you may want to follow.

Mother Earth News
With an eye toward the environment and conservation, Mother Earth News helps us do our part to preserve the beauty around us. Learn about making your own shampoo or growing strawberries, or how to restore old wood. Beekeeping, rural living, green homes, DIY projects, and related content will help you devise strategies for conserving time, money, water, and electricity on all your future projects.

Hobby Farms
Hobby Farms magazine feeds its 369,000 Facebook fans fun little tidbits and videos about raising chickens, sheep, bees, and other assorted small acreage animals. Woven into its posts are gardening tips from fertilizing to pest control, and recipes for down-home cooking and home remedies that you’ll want to try. The ideas shared on the page aren’t just for hobby “farmers.” They’re so helpful that nearly anyone can learn a thing or two here.

Grit Magazine
Of all the pages we’ve highlighted here, Grit is the “grittiest” of them all. [And perhaps it’s the one that appeals the most to Quadra-Fire owners who don’t mind getting a little dirt under their fingernails.] Its content is more about rural living and less about home decorating, with recipe ideas sprinkled in here and there. You can learn about foraging for wild berries, rotating crops, or building a chicken coop – as well as raising and harvesting the chickens. Join the other 382,000 people who “like” this page and stay in the know on all kinds of helpful information for country living.

Country Living Magazine
Country Living, both the magazine and the Facebook page, cover country home décor, practical housekeeping and landscaping tips, scrumptious recipes and crafty ideas. With more than 2.2 million Facebook fans, Country Living has found its niche by offering content many people appreciate. You won’t get help with raising chickens on this site, but you will get a fresh perspective on home decorating for cottages and country homes.

Of course, you’ll also want to “like” our Harman Stoves Facebook page, where you can follow our blog stories, learn about new Harman stoves, and get maintenance tips from our professionals and other Facebook friends. We also run special offers and contests from time to time, so get in on the action!

From all of us at Harman, embrace a Facebook community, and make sure to have plenty of fires along the way!
