Mary Jane’s Palouse Farm
by Carol Price Spurling
An organic farmer, carpenter, entrepreneur, magazine publisher, photographer, and writer, Mary Jane Butters has reached her prime now, at age 51, after an early career in the U.S. Forest Service. With a major book deal and a thriving business, Mary Jane’s success story is growing on a national scale in an unlikely location: the Palouse hills eight miles south of Moscow.

A splendid view of the majestic Sawtooth and White Cloud mountains awaits those who choose to visit the central Idaho hamlet of Stanley. While they may appreciate photographic versions of similar settings, outdoor recreation seekers jaded by big city office work can find there’s nothing like the real thing. It’s a visual treat that local residents, such as cattle ranchers, have access to year-round.

With her short story “The Wildflower” Ciara R. Huntington was IDAHO magazine’s Youth Division Fiction Contest winner in 2004. Huntington, a Boise native, wasted no time in making her mark in this year’s Adult Division competition. Huntington’s humorous entry, “The Boyfriend Test,” took top honors in the ever-competitive adult category. It’s a good read.
