Registration & Login


Why am I being asked to log in?

To gain complete access to all NEWS content on FGInsight.com, you’ll need to join us by registering or subscribing. It is a quick and easy process and will give you all NEWS access within seconds. For the next few weeks, all new Users will be given full access to the site, including VIP and VIP Plus areas.


Do I have to register again if I registered on farmersguardian.com?
All email addresses of registered users of farmersguardian.com have been transferred into FGInsight.com. You will need to request a password for FGInsight.com and can do so by clicking here. Simply add in your email address, click send and a new password will be sent out to you.


Can I find historic articles?
We’re looking at making a complete archive of historic news content in the near future. For now though, we’ve transferred a handful of select articles over to FGInsight.com. This does mean that, for the moment, some of our old articles are unavailable.


Can I still use farmersguardian.com?
No. If you search for farmersguardian.com in a search engine, or type the address into your url bar, you will be redirected to FGInsight.com.


What are filters?
If you need to search for something specific, you can filter the content that appears on your screen. For example, if you’re looking for arable advice, click on the ‘arable’ tab at the top of the screen.  The filter count will then increase to ‘1’.  Next, click ‘advice’.  The filter count will now increase to ‘2’.  The stories that now appear on your screen will be stories containing relevant arable advice.


If you want to go back to the home page, click ‘clear filters’ and our main content page will appear.

Farmers Guardian APP


Am I entitled to free App access?

Individual issues - £2.49
1 month subscription - £9.99
3 month subscription - £25.99

How can I access the Farmers Guardian App?
You should be able to pair your subscription by using the following instructions.  If these login details don’t work first time, please delete the app from your Newsstand and then fully restart your device.  You can then re-download the app and enter the details again. 

  • Install the app onto your device
  • Once you've installed the app, open it from your Newsstand folder (the one that looks like a bookshelf)
  • Click on the “Download” button under the latest issue
  • A pop-up will appear with prices. Underneath the prices you’ll see 2 boxes awaiting log-in details
  • In the first box, enter your surname and the last 4 digits of your subscription number – i.e. Smith1234
  • In the second box, enter these numbers again as your password – 1234
  • Press "Login”

Please ensure that, when going through this process, you have a good, stable connection to the internet.  Ideally, connect your device to a home broadband, wireless connection.  If the connection is unstable, this could cause the pairing to fail.


If you do experience any technical problems, please don’t hesitate to contact our support team at supportdesk@pagesuite.com or on 01233 721030.


Where can I find my subscription number?
If you have your Membership card, you’ll find your subscription number above your name.  Alternatively, when your paper copy of Farmers Guardian is delivered, you’ll find your subscription number above your name on the address slip i.e. 49881234.
