While the ag industry is front and center of all things business in this region of the state, behind the scenes another story takes place with our farm families. This is what the Delta Ag Journal is all about — a new publication we at Coopwood Publishing Group are launching that will not only deliver informative news on the ag industry, but more importantly concentrate on the lifestyles of our Delta farmers and their families.
One of the great magazine publishers of the U.S., Roy Reiman from Greendale, Wisconsin, blazed the trail for the farm lifestyle publishing industry decades ago with his company, Reiman Publications. Roy sold his publications to Reader’s Digest, but up until that time he published several farm lifestyle magazines with titles such as Farm & Ranch Living, Farm Wife News, Country, and many others that were very popular.
“When I grew up on a farm, farm magazines were fun to read … I figured there had to be farmers who still wanted that,” Roy famously once said after he noticed the majority of farm magazines had turned into little more than technical manuals.
Our sentiments exactly.
The Delta Ag Journal will provide ag content you cannot find anywhere else as we’re going to take a totally different approach from the other ag publishing sources that are in print and online.
Who is going to receive the Delta Ag Journal? During the past several months, we have put together what we feel is the definitive ag list of the Mississippi Delta. The Delta Ag Journal will be mailed to all known farmers and ag related businesses in the Mississippi Delta with additional copies being mailed to a special business and political leadership list we have also put together that consists of mailing addresses in the Delta, Jackson, and in some cases in Washington, D.C.
Your comments are needed and much appreciated concerning our new publishing venture. Please send your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or to our mailing address, Delta Ag Journal, PO Box 117, Cleveland, Mississippi 38732. Additionally, our office phone is 662-843-2700.
By the way, you may already be familiar with us through our other publications, Delta Business Journal and Delta Magazine. If so, you are aware of the quality we pride ourselves in delivering to our readers. And so it will be with the Delta Ag Journal!
