Help save The Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin
The Market Bulletin has been in publication since 1907, selling everything farmers use from fertilizer and seeds to heifers and farm equipment, basically anything a farmer could use.
In a letter from Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, Gary Black, he states that a decision will have to be made about ending publication of The Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin unless 38,000 additional paid subscriptions are received by April 30th. They are currently working on instituting a $10 annual subscription fee. For more information or to subscribe: The Farmers and Consumers Market Bulletin
