Founded in April 2013,[1] Modern Farmer is a quarterly American magazine devoted to agriculture and food. Modern Farmer is unique in that it attempts to have equally rural and urban readers,[2] and to "appeal to the person who wants to romanticize farming and the person who is knee deep in turkey droppings", according to The New York Times.[1]

Modern Farmer covers have featured livestock and its articles include those like a series of interviews with agriculture ministers from around the globe.[3] Its stories tend to take a "farm to table" perspective, comprehensively covering food and agriculture topics like Greek yogurt or feral pigs.[4] In addition to the print magazine, it has a popular website; its "goatcam", a public web cam of goats, produced 60,000 pageviews alone.[5] Based in Hudson, New York,[2] It is backed financially by Fiore Capital and its CEO/editor-in-chief is Ann Marie Gardner.[5]
