Media release: The Scottish Farmer – supporting farmers for 125 years


PROUDLY celebrating its 125th anniversary this month, The Scottish Farmer, thought to be one of the oldest farming publications in the world, has been providing essential farming news and business data to aid and support farmers in the running of their businesses since its initial launch in 1893.

To mark this milestone, and incorporating a new masthead to celebrate the launch of its 125th anniversary, the January 6, 2018 issue will include a commemorative feature providing a taster of the evolution of The Scottish Farmer, as well as the traditional and much-anticipated Show & Sale Guide which provides a comprehensive list of all the local and national shows for the year ahead.

As an added bonus, this issue will also include an annual wall planner, with every copy.

Magazine publisher, Darren Bruce, comments: “2017 was a defining year of change for the industry and equally too for everyone here at The Scottish Farmer, as we invested into our title and its infrastructure.

“To this day, the team are all as passionate as our predecessors were 125 years ago and we look forward to many more years of unrivalled content, new feature activity and the best in agricultural reporting and photography.”

Editor, Ken Fletcher, continues: “The Scottish Farmer acts as a publication of record for the Scottish farming industry. Through the last decade, the print publication has become part of a multi-media environment, as is supported with an informative award winning website, which offers a variety of modern packages including news and e-edition apps to fit with our reader’s needs.”
