Do farmers blog?

Do farmers and ranchers blog?

Off and on over the last several months I’ve searched for blogs that are primarily about agriculture. So far I haven’t had much success.

Sure I can find words like “agriculture” or “ranching” or “farming” in posts on some blogs out there, but to date I’ve been unsuccessful in compiling a list of agriculture blogs.

I have a theory about that. Farmers and ranchers probably don’t have a lot of time for such pursuits. Or if they do, the periods when they have time they may not have access to the Internet.

However, there seem to be blogs about virtually every other topic under the sun, so I’m guessing that somewhere in this big wide blogosphere there are a few people in the ag industry who take time to share their observations on what they know best.

So, I’m doing to turn to you for help. If you are here, you obviously have two key ingredients in this quest. 1) You have an interest in agriculture; and 2) you have Internet access.

So, if you stumble onto any blogs about agriculture, or you maintain one yourself, I’d love to hear about it. Leave a comment on this page or drop be a line via e-mail. I’ll be happy to share the sites readers share with me with all of you.

And together we can explore the world of what I’m choosing to call, “blogriculture.”

So send your ag-blog discoveries to
via e-mail, and we’ll see what’s out there together.
