A New Magazine for the Modern Farmer


Urban chicken enthusiasts! If you’re trying to figure out what kind of birds to put in your coop, check out the newly launched print quarterly and website, Modern Farmer. The answer is tucked away in Karen Leibowitz’s “Which Chicken Is Right for You?” (where you’ll find that city coops are well-suited for gentle, miniature varieties).

MF looks like a great new place for well-reported food journalism–we were delighted to see a story by Peter Andrey Smith on the state of Florida’s citrus farming.

Watch editor-in-chief Ann Marie Gardner, formerly of The New York Times and Monocle, introduce the new magazine after the jump.
