No agricultural newspaper combines tradition and progress like Lancaster Farming. Founded in 1955, the printed newspaper averages over 148 pages each week, filled with farming news, features, markets and classified ads. Whether you’re looking for the latest research on powdery mildew, a pie recipe from a fellow reader, a good deal on a tractor, or a comprehensive auction listing, Lancaster Farming keeps you connected to rural life. Change is constant, but it doesn’t have to happen at the peril of principle and practice. Appreciation for that balance is why Lancaster Farming has been thriving for nearly 70 years.

Today, Lancaster Farming operates both in print and online with a wide variety of marketing services to satisfy the needs of any business or independent farmer. Through our marketing solutions, you can reach potential customers who have interests that align with your business, such as dairy farming, swine management, cattle husbandry, pest control, no-till, nutrient management, cooking, faith, antique tractors, auctions, and so much more. Our advertisers know that marketing with Lancaster Farming, through print and digital, truly “makes the phone ring.”
