About the Author
is a bimonthly magazine distributed throughout the United States and Canada that celebrates country lifestyles of all kinds, while emphasizing the importance of community and stewardship. As North America's premier rural-lifestyle title, Grit
publishes feature-length articles on a broad range of topics that appeal to those already living in the country and to those who aspire to get there. Their readers are well-educated, successful, and choose to live on the land for many reasons. Most do not depend on their soil for significant income; some choose not to work their land (in the conventional sense) at all. But all share an appreciation for life out where the pavement ends.Grit
offers practical advice; product reviews; livestock guides; gardening, cooking, and other do-it-yourself information; humor; and inspirational stories of folks who moved to the country and loved it. Each issue covers topics related to country living, land management, wildlife, gardening, livestock or pets, skills and techniques, seasonal food, community, machinery or tools, and lifestyle events. It is one of many magazines published by Ogden Publications, Inc. in Topeka, Kansas.
