110-Year-Old Farmer’s Weekly Bucks Trend of Closing Magazines

The popular Farmer’s Weekly magazine, in business since 1911, will carry on publishing as normal, even though ten of its sister publications are on the block.

Yesterday, Caxton Magazines announced that ten of its publications, including People, Bona, Rooi Rose and Your Family, would close.

“Although things will evolve for us over the next few months, given the closure of our magazine publishing company, Caxton Magazines, Farmer’s Weekly will be retained in the larger Caxtons Group,” the magazine said in a statement.

Farmer’s Weekly first came out in 1911, 110 years ago.
