Tailgate Talk, Wilmer award winner

May 15, 2009
By: Sara Schafer, Farm Journal Media Business and Crops Editor

Carrying on a Legacy

The founder of Farm Journal, Wilmer Atkinson, started our magazine for farmers within a day's ride of Philadelphia by horse. Our readers stretch across the country now, but the spirit of the magazine Atkinson created is much the same. He launched a principled, practical publication "to separate the cream from the skim milk.” Today we call it service journalism, and each year we present a Wilmer Award to the staff member who best carries on our founder's legacy. Our latest recipient is Katie Humphreys. As managing editor, Katie works tirelessly to produce a magazine packed with practical information. Her strong farm roots woven with her passion for serving readers would certainly make Wilmer proud!

What A Day!

Maybe this tractor needed to cool down after a strenuous day of work. Or maybe the driver lost control. Who knows? It's safe to say, though, this tractor found itself creating work instead of being helpful.
