Farms.com has bought Better Farming magazine and its sister publications that are all part of Ag Media Inc.
Ag Media management will move to Guelph to join Farms.com .
Better Farming was started in 1999 after the Ontario Federation of Agriculture folded its newspaper. Several staff members founded the new magazine; OFA helped by providing its membership list for circulation.
That enabled Ag Media to claim that it had the largest farmer audience in Ontario; it was able to make similar claims for Better Pork magazine.
Ag Media also publishes several things for the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, including OFA Today, OFA In Sight and the official show guide for the International Plowing Match.
Farms.com has several of its own publications, including Ag Buyer’s Guide, US Farmer magazine and Bechmark magazine.
