Small Farm Advocate

About the Publication

The Small Farm Advocate is a tabloid publication that is released twice yearly - once in February to debut at our West Virginia Small Farm Conference, and once in early August to coincide with the State Fair of West Virginia. We have a readership of approximately 8,000 people. Articles are geared toward small farmers and they share information on many topics, from gardening to pregnancy checking cows, from aquaculture to forest farming. The Advocate is distributed at every West Virginia County Extension Office, Conservation District Office, USDA Service Center, workshops and conferences where fellow agriculturalists may gather.
