Seeking Farm Writers and Storytellers for the Small Farm Quarterly
Attention farmers, extension educators, and service providers: The Cornell Small Farms Program encourages you to submit articles and photos to our magazine.
The Small Farm Quarterly is a print publication of our program, published four times a year and reaching an audience of more than 31,000 in New York and the Northeast US. The Quarterly is offered as a supplement to Country Folks and is produced by Lee Publications. Past articles can be viewed on our website.
We are currently seeking articles and cover photography that highlight the technical, social, and economic aspects of farming and are geared toward a farmer audience. 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.
Of particular interest for our next issues are articles on small dairy operations, soil health, adaptation to climate change, raising pastured pigs, and urban agriculture.
Anyone is welcome to submit articles for consideration, simply follow our writer’s guidelines. The articles should be 1,000 to 1,600 words in length, with at least 2 or 3 high-resolution pictures that would accompany and support the writing.
If you are interested in submitting photography to be considered for the magazine cover, the images should be a minimum of 300 dpi at 8.5” X 11” size. We love photos of food, farm scenery, and people farming.
The deadline for submissions to the upcoming Winter Issue is November 17th.
