  • Green with Outback envy

    Today I experienced a new emotion: magazine envy. It wasn’t a pretty sight either. Goodness only knows what Mark, the editor of Outback, thought as I sat stupidly gaping as he brought out issue after issue of one of the nicest-looking publications I’ve ever seen. (I realise I’ve broken...

  • The things I do for you guys…

    When Farmers Weekly celebrated it’s diamond anniversary last year, we ran a poll to find out what readers thought the greatest farming innovation of the past 75 years was. While the three-point linkage came out top, the mobile phone came in a close second as an invention which had revolutionised...

  • Fishy way for the media to make dosh

    Gob of the Wash is in London at the moment for the Chelsea Flower Show, so we’ve been going out to play in the evenings to take advantage of his escape from Lincolnshire.

  • Fighting fire with fire – how farming won’t win friends

    I had several failed attempts at starting a blog before I really got my teeth into writing this one (and I probably only stuck with this because I paid for the domain name and, being northern, I hate seeing money go to waste). It’s not that I lost perseverance in writing posts, it’s because...

  • Independent travel

    I booked tickets to fly to Chicago and Toronto today for the first leg of my Nuffield study tour. To say I’m excited is an understatement. I’m now having to confirm the meetings I’ve been tentatively organising over the past few weeks and I’m already thinking I could’ve...

  • Is this going in the magazine?

    Without exception, conversations with young farmers at this weekend’s AGM in Torquay ran like this: Tipsy young farmer: Are you that woman from Farmers Weekly? Caroline: Yes. TYF: Can I have your Farmers Weekly t-shirt? C: No. TYF: Will you take my photo then? C: Yes. TYF: Will it go in the magazine...

  • Too much information

    Far too many people have shared their toilet habits with me today. I’ve been having a chat with some of the scholars about the farming newspapers they read back home – I’ve brought a couple of issues of FW with me so we’ve been trading agricultural publications on the bus journeys...
