Grange Cookbooks


Important Announcement  

Sold Out!

The popular 1972 (white) State Grange Cookbook is no longer available.   The State Grange has announced there are no plans to re-print this edition.



Granges and Grange members have long cherished their reputation for good cooking. Most Grangers are rural or small town residents with access to fresh wholesome ingredients. Many carry on the tradition of preparing food for their family's consumption along with sharing their time, skills and ingredients to prepare many community meals and fund raising dinners.

It's not surprising, then, that cookbooks have been put together by Grangers for decades to share recipes and household hints.  What may be surprising is the continuing popularity of these Grange cookbooks and that demand has encouraged the publication of many different editions. Unfortunately, many of the cookbook editions printed over the years are no longer available for purchase. 

The most recent State Grange Cookbook was released in October 2010 and is on its way to becoming another best seller.  Perry Valley Grange now has that new cookbook, along with some previous editions, available for sale. You may purchase them at any activity at the Grange Hall or by calling Douglas Bonsall at 717-921-1957. The cost varies by book and is shown below along with a description of each book.  Please add $4 per book to the price to cover shipping costs for any books that must be mailed.
