What Magazines Do You Read? (if any)
« on: September 13, 2011, 04:13:54 pm »
Hi,

Just trying to get a feel of what magazines people read, as we are running a series of competitions and want to place them in the right place - first one is in Novembers Smallholder.

So do you read:

Smallholder
Farmers Weekly
Farmers Guardian
etc etc

Thanks

Practical Poultry, Scottish Farmer, Smallholder, Country Smallholder not all the time just when I fancy. When you get to my age you find that a fare few articles or stories are just revamps of old ones or is that just me.
Shetland sheep, Castlemilk Moorits sheep, Hebridean sheep, Scots Grey Bantams, Scots Dumpy Bantams. Shetland Ducks.

Given up on journals - once you have had them for a while, yet another new series on "getting started in...." is just not worth the money...

Just read on here and a couple of other places, get the odd book from the library or from abebooks if recommended.

Sorry not much help...

We get practical pigs free with BPA membership. Just as well as I wouldn't buy it. Used to buy one or other of the smallholding mags but quickly realised that every issue is the bloody same. Main gripe is that most of the content is thinly veiled advertising, and the rest is actually advertising. Practical pigs is a bit of a joke really the editor has been the editor longer than he's been a pig keeper but still writes guides to various breeds and at least half the articles. The rest is just more boring advertising. Rant over.

Couldn't agree more with Hughsey and Anke. I used to get Smallholder mag and Practical Poultry but it got a bit samey after a while. Grow Your Own is going the same way - too many pictures of wistful looking girls with their head to one side holding a handful of fruit in a twee little basket........

TAS is good enough for me

Couldn't we have a competition on here SfS?

I used to have Smallholder and Country smallholder, but they got so expensive, and was the same old stuff, so stopped having them.  Have Grow your own in the summer .....[.like the free seeds :)  Buy the Farmers Guardian, but thats a lot of money nowadays.  Or maybe I am just tght!!

Home farmer and permaculture are my favourites  just now. Sometime i get practical poultry or the smallholder or country smallholder.
If i am looking to buy something though my first stop is ebay - not sure if that helps? The things i buy on the internet are usually things like medication or anti pest sort of products or feeding equipment or electric fencing stuff etc

Small holder, scottish farmer and every now and then your horse and horse and rider.  I borrow books from library too.  This months small holder I was disappointed read it quickly last few have took me about a week but i enjoyed reading it.  Would like more recipes in it.   poultry section this time very disappointed.  Thinking about it not alot mentioned regarding sheep or cows but we have only been getting it lately last 3 or 4 months. Would like more recipes for sausages how to smoke bacon etc even whats in season and recipes for making things in season even readers recipes would be nice. i do like the pig section we have just got pigs and will be taking our old spot to slaughter soon hence the sausage bacon recipes not decided what cuts we are getting
