Editor's Notebook: Don't Be Fooled Into Buying

08:22AM Feb 07, 2015

Trust me, no one but Farm Journal should ask you to buy or renew a subscription to our magazine. Even so, several of our readers—including me!—received a subscription notice in the mail this winter from a company called Associated Publishers Network based out of Henderson, Nev. We have no association with this company and have not authorized it to sell subscriptions for any of our publications. 

According to complaints to the Better Business Bureau, the Associated Publishers Network operates under the following company names: 

  • National Magazine Services
  • United Publishers Clearing House 
  • Orbital Publishing 
  • Publisher’s Billing Exchange

Not only is Associated Publishers Network trying to sell new subscriptions and renewals, but it is trying to do so at inflated rates. 

The true Farm Journal rates are $29.95 for a one-year subscription in the U.S. and $60 for foreign countries.

If you would like to subscribe, renew your subscription or share an address change with Farm Journal or any of our other publications, contact:

Farm Journal Reader Service
102 MacKinlay Kantor Drive
Webster City, IA 50595-7201
(800) 331-9310

We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate you being our partner in putting a stop to these activities by not being fooled into buying from these folks.

We Hope to See You at One of Our Upcoming Events
