People, Land, and Community

I recently found a new magazine that is well worth getting. Farming is a magazine for those of us that farm because we love the life it provides our families and communities. Over the past few years there has been a real void in this area. I just get depressed reading most of the Ag magazines out there now. The last issue of Dairy Herd Management that came had an awful article on how we dairymen have "evolved". It sought to make fun of "farmers" who wore bib overalls, kept cows on grass, had barn cats, and get this one........Who's wives cooked them breakfast! Well, this one is different. Farming Magazine celebrates the joys of farming well and living well. It celebrates People, Land, and Community. The first issue just came and it has articles on small dairy coops, the heritage of stone fences, a look at traditional barns, the loss of small slaughterhouses, and some good poems and opinion pieces. My only gripe is that it only comes 4 times a year. I wish it was a weekly!
