Product Description

Acres U.S.A. is the national magazine of organic and sustainable farming. In continuous publication for over 35 years, Acres U.S.A. reaches more commercial-scale organic and sustainable farmers than any other publication in North America.

Begun in 1970, when there were merely a few lone souls practicing eco-agriculture, farming that is both economical and ecological, Acres U.S.A. founder and executive editor Charles Walters recognized how the methodical cheating of small farmers and the enforced swing toward new, chemical agriculture were gears in the same machine, working in tandem to transform the countryside -- and not for the better. Corporate power and public policy were colluding in the destruction of the family farm, and the process of annihilation was gathering speed. Walters met, interviewed and presented to the public the works of soil scientists, farmers, economic thinkers and farm policy experts who were gradually being pushed aside by mainstream publications in favor of more modern, and more toxic, solutions. He worked tirelessly to reveal the inadequacies of chemical farming, and promoted gently coaxing nature into yielding her bounty.

Decades later, Acres U.S.A. readers continue to receive the latest news and in-depth analyses of ecological agriculture technologies, economic issues and environmental news each month. They meet successful eco-farmers through case reports. Top figures in eco-agriculture share their stories, struggles and successes through the Acres U.S.A. Interview. And eco-agriculture is brought full-circle through countless discussions of complex veterinary and human health and healing issues. Add in regular columns on marketing, grazing, tillage methods, soils, weed and insect control, high-value crops, news from around the world, meetings, and more, and you’ll begin to understand the scope of what Acres U.S.A. offers.

Based on the work of scientists and farmers whose sophisticated approach to agriculture reveals chemical farming as obsolete and misguided, Acres U.S.A. teaches readers how to embrace the science of nature. Rather than batter nature into submission with bizarre chemistry that short-circuits natural processes, sustainable farmers feed the soil and bring it into balance. Subsequently, they are rewarded with superior crops and lower input costs. Acres U.S.A. has helped thousands of farmers feed the nation's growing appetite for clean, delicious food and showed them how to make a profit while they're at it.

Acres U.S.A. holds a unique understanding of and role in the eco-agriculture movement, introducing readers to the experts who are putting both new practices and proven methods to work in the field. We’re not reporting on trends from afar; our writers are experts in their field, providing high-level, useful information for serious farmers.

Acres U.S.A. is independent of government, Extension, the universities, agribusiness and the agrichemical industry. We’re a family-owned business and an outspoken authority on eco-farming, unfettered from any outside interests. We aim for comprehensive coverage of the multitude of issues within the vast field of farming.

Learn from the oldest and largest magazine focusing on sustainable agriculture, emphasizing practical, soils up advice for sophisticated, innovative farmers. Leading the movement toward chemical-free agriculture for over 35 years, our readers rely on Acres U.S.A. for the latest techniques for growing bountiful, nutritious crops and raising healthy, vibrant livestock.

5.0 out of 5 stars necessary reading for organic gardening / farming August 27, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Acres USA; The Voice of Eco-Agriculture

I read this monthly magazine from cover to cover every month and it is super and I can never get enough.

Different sections are as follows:

ECO-UPDATE fills a couple pages and it covers world environmental, GMO, pesticide, food recalls etc ... food news, and it is a must read. This latest addition talked about who owns the rain and water catchment laws in America, CAFO laws, GMO-Free rights and how European countries are fighting the push from large corporations like Monsanto, to use GMO seeds.

Industrial AG Watch; news from the other side of agriculture - very interesting and useful information.

Organic News: talks about political appointments, organic trends across America and the world, and other studies. There are always a couple interesting articles about organic corporations who have lied or gotten fined for not being completely organic.

Transitions; Thoughts on Organic Food and Farming

And from there the editorial staff concentrates on different issues.

There are always important and interesting articles on pasture management and heard nutrition, last month there was an interview about the dairy industry and milk prices, weeds and soil nutrition, they have a brilliant writer, Kinsey, who writes about soil and answers a question every month.

February had an extremely informative chicken issue, this September 2009 has articles on fungus and fungus treatment, being that Late Blight is a big topic this wet year in the North East.

There are articles on different livestock every month like this month they have an article on Whey-Fed Pigs, sometimes they concentrate on certain heirloom breeds or common farm breeds.

5.0 out of 5 stars great magazine September 26, 2007
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Referred to me by a Californian who has an organic farm business I was skeptical I could find useful articles since I live in the Upper Peninisula of Michigan but...I love this magazine. It is very informative, covers a wide range of topics including permaculture, organic farming and husbandry, offers many resources and lists interesting seminars in the U.S. Definitely worth it.

We love this one so much that we started giving out subscriptions as presents. Not just for pro-farmers, not just for home gardeners; it's for those with an interest in real food and the freedom to grow and purchase real food.

I have been seeking a publication like this for a long time. A bit of earthy wisdom, a bit of information about larger scale practices, and other topics I can use in family life. Fantastic, actionable, and an easy read. I look forward to it every month!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hands down- BEST Farm Mag December 9, 2014
By Shawna
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
I've ordered quite a few farming magazines over the years and still get some but Acres is a favorite, no questions asked. The reason being is the information provided is up to date/current and important stuff. We are big into organic and this magazine supports those views with great ideas and tips. Not to mention Acres does an annual farming conference packed full of experienced and knowledgeable speakers where much can be learned. We have not gone yet but have ordered the audio from them. What a great magazine and I'm also giving it as a gift to those I know who will also appreciate this valuable information! Yes, its a bit more pricey than some but its a thicker magazine packed cover to cover, we have no regrets, so glad I took the risk on this one- which I cannot say on a few others! UPDATE* I should add my husband loves this magazine- we are currently purchasing a larger farm than what we had previously and between this mag, the audio from the conferences and some books by Louis Bromfield & others we are going to be doing an organic, non-till system. Growing organically (using cover crops)is less expensive and you sell your crops for much more not to mention it is healthier for us to eat and the environment in our opinion.
