    she still craves today I ve never gotten over my need for quiet absolute quiet said Butters That need for nature led MaryJane to the Palouse in 1985 where she bought a remote five acre farm With no indoor plumbing this single mother of two managed to raise her young children and a bounty of organic crops Despite MaryJane s green thumb it was actually a neighbor s crop that launched her culinary career A fellow farmer was struggling to sell his organic garbanzo beans MaryJane bought a 50 pound bag and began experimenting I looked at what was for sale in the stores and I thought hmmm falafel ground up garbanzo beans said MaryJane Butters I played with the herbs and spices it would need and started selling it locally to restaurants and our co op I sold maybe 5 pounds a month and now I sell hundreds of pounds a month said Butters During the experimental phase her kids dubbed it mom s awful falafel a recipe that ultimately lead to an award winning creation and the genesis of MaryJane s Organic Foods Gary Salzman KTVB MaryJane Butters lives on five acres near Moscow Idaho She recently began a bed and breakfast experience on her property that lets overnight guests stay in canvass tents I decided to put a face to food and to brand myself and that s when things started cooking said Butters MaryJane next launched a self titled magazine shooting her own photos and writing about the simple things in life sewing cooking gardening reaching out to rural America in particular Last year she optimistically printed 5 000 copies of her first issue and almost immediately sold out After 9 11 there was just this shift people wanted to stay home embrace their home life

    answer all her e mails phone calls and letters personally although someone will but the farm and the business still operate on an intimate scale And she insists they always will That and the quality of her products are the real trademark The personal touch begins at the farm where she and her husband Nick Ogle a soulful native of the land that surrounds Butters tiny plot employ about 14 full time people most of whom are local folk fired with optimism about sustainable agriculture They work on the gardens the magazine or the book or they help package the organic foods If the whole operation invites comparison with Martha Stewart the analogy stops where the emphasis on the real human souls at MJF begins Butters knows that she has reached her personal tipping point and she worries a little about the consequences of success What is likely to protect her from a backlash is the community she has created As we talk about people like Julie Bell from South Carolina who does the food styling and the sewing projects for the magazine or Carol Hill from Moscow Idaho who designs it Butters admits that when she stops to consider how much all these people have helped her with her dream she is overcome All I can do in return she says finally is to help them with theirs In her effort to spread the word Butters has created Farm Stays for people who want to come to the farm and learn by working there To accommodate them she has built a few comfortable wall tents heated by woodstoves and furnished in the best MaryJane fashion with iron bedsteads old quilts and a few good books and magazines Dreams are MaryJane Butters business and she has always pursued them without pausing to consult conventional wisdom In 1993 when she needed money for her business she figured out how to do her own public stock offering and raised 500 000 from 25 investors The initial dividends were paid in the form of the farm s products To close the circle of business magazine and farm Butters invites her investors to the farm to do a little hoeing and often profiles them in the magazine Her approach to journalism is equally inventive The magazine promotes the MaryJane line of foods and tells readers how to make quick nutritious meals with them It also draws attention to products made by other rural businesses There are plenty of reader testimonials how to projects inspirational poems and essays news bits and homemaking tips There are no ads and no subscribers some features are recycled from issue to issue regular columns may or may not appear and readers are encouraged to help increase circulation if they drop an issue off at their local store they are reimbursed with another issue It s the homespun touch again but it can have large scale consequences After her magazine distributor warned her that Wal Mart wouldn t be interested
