Re: the discontinuation of Acreage Life
Like losing a treasured possession. Very sorry to see you go.

We have received this magazine free since we moved to our 4.66 acres. Would you consider doing a survey to find out if it would be feasible to continue with the magazine if people would be happy to pay for it?

I received my winter issue of Acreage Life and found it as full of interesting and useful information as in every previous issue. However I was dismayed to read that it was also the last!
I have been a subscriber to your magazine since the first issue and have kept every one as a source of information and interesting reading. I will miss its arrival in my mailbox. It is a magazine of high quality, both in its presentation and the articles in it, and is worth considerably more than the mere $25.00 per year subscription.
I suppose the die is cast as far as its termination is concerned, but I would be willing to pay more for it if that would influence the publishers.

We have just received your last edition of Acreage Life and are so sorry to hear that there will be no more.
Many thanks, and we wish all of you success and happiness in whatever ventures the future holds for you.

It's a shame to hear, because your magazine was fantastic. I bought it when I saw it at a newsstand or bookstore. I hope everyone there moves on to something equally wonderful.

We're very, very sad to see this go. We've kept all the issues that we've received over the past three years, for reference to the many projects and questions that arise when you're living on an acreage.
The articles have been enjoyable and informative. I'm not sure where we'll turn now! It was nice to have a Canadian perspective on these issues, where climate is more extreme. It was also a great reference to regional suppliers and services.
We'll miss it greatly!

We read Sheila's column, Farewell to Acreage Life, and we're just as disappointed as you.
As city transplants to the country, we loved reading each issue and learned lots. I just downloaded the treehouse instructions off the website! And we had a run-in with a skunk in our garage a few weeks ago, and wish we had seen the article on discouraging skunks!
We'll miss you and Acreage Life.

Hello. I am very disappointed that you are no longer publishing the Acreage Life magazine!!
Your articles are always very informative and enjoyable. I have learned a lot as an acreage owner. Could we not get enough people to have a paid subscription? You will be sorely missed.

We shall miss Acreage Life in our mailbox! As new Canadians (2001) and new to acreage living (2002) we have enjoyed the fascinating articles (built the bat box), the gorgeous photography, and clipped recipes.
Let's hope it will be 'Au revoir' rather than goodbye...

My husband and I were both very disappointed to learn that you are ceasing publication of Acreage Life. We've bought other magazines geared to country dwellers in the past, but enjoyed yours the most because it had a 'western-Canadian-familiar' feel to it. We live on an acreage 7 miles south of Boissevain, Manitoba. We thoroughly enjoyed your magazine and always looked forward to it. Your articles were interesting, helpful and above-all, relevant. Sad to see you go.
Thanks for a great run, and thank you for the subscription refund just received. All the best to your staff, for the holidays, and for 2009!
