You talked and we listened! Our Classifieds section has been well loved and well used over the years but we’ve continued to get complaints that the open model has left you all far too vulnerable to spammers. And long-time followers still pine over the days when we offered the New Farm Forums as an area for frank discussion on everything from down and dirty production methods to managing your farm business to the latest issues in the wider food and farming communities.
Farmers Connect is our answer to both of these challenges. You will be asked to create an account and login, meaning you control just how public or private your information is. From there you can post a classified ad, start a discussion thread or chat with the folks already talking on our Facebook page.
Be sure to read our welcome letter when you get there and remember to use your manners. Farmers Connect will be moderated and we reserve the right to remove posts or participants we deem inappropriate. And, most importantly, enjoy.
