The Cornell Small Farms Program is seeking articles and cover photography for its print publication, The Small Farm Quarterly, which is offered four times a year and reaches over 31,000 readers in New York and the Northeast US. The quarterly is offered as a supplement to Country Folks and is produced by Lee Publications.
Farmers, extension educators, and service providers are encouraged to submit articles and photos appropriate for a farmer audience that highlight the technical, social, and economic aspects of farming. Past articles can be viewed at:http://smallfarms.cornell.edu/quarterly/
We are particularly in need of articles on small dairy operations, soil health, adaption to climate change, raising pastured pigs, and urban agriculture. Anyone is welcome to submit articles for consideration.
Articles should be 1,000 - 1,600 words in length with 2 - 3 high-resolution pictures. See our writer's guidelines at: http://smallfarms.cornell.edu/quarterly/writers/
Topics should be appropriate for a farmer audience, and not promote a single organization or business. We focus on articles with relevant information that helps to improve the practice of farming and enhances the agricultural community in New York and the Northeast.
Cover photos should be a minimum of 150 dpi at 8.5" X 11" size. We love photos of food, farm scenery, and people farming.
Summer issue: May 13th with publication in early July
Fall issue: August 12th with publication in early October
