Farmers Guardian, informing and supporting Britain’s farmers for over 170 years.
First published in 1844, the Preston Guardian switched to concentrate solely on agriculture in the 1950's. Since then, it steadily grew to become agriculture's national weekly newspaper covering all sectors of the industry and all regions of the U.K. Farmers Guardian now provides so much more than just the weekly print edition with many additional services for members.
At Farmers Guardian, we’ve been informing and supporting Britain's farmers for over 170 years. Since 1844, we’ve reported on progress and change in farming – our earliest issues covered the repeal of the Corn Laws – and today, we’re using technology to transform how we provide news, information and advice to our readers.
The new look Farmers Guardian news content is even harder-edged and drills down in to what political decisions and wider events really mean for farmers and their businesses. We analyse the big issues affecting agriculture, as well as showcasing the innovation which is transforming the industry.
Easy-to-read news content, great analysis of complex issues affecting the industry, farm features and case studies, plus market-leading show, sale and technical content. But, you also told us you wanted more, now you’ve got it and all in a handy size.
From comprehensive business coverage focusing on realities of the industry, farmers told us they want greater focus on international news and context around why what happens in Europe, New Zealand or the USA matters for you on your UK farm. With more about diversification and generating additional revenue for your business, the new Farmers Guardian delivers all of this and more.
With a quarterly or annual subscription, you can have the paper delivered direct to your door every week – and save money on the regular cover price, too. As a subscriber, you also receive exclusive access to VIP Member content on FG Insight, which includes a free App version of the paper every week so you can read Farmers Guardian wherever and whenever suits you.
