There has been a movement afoot in recent years to make connections between what we eat, how we live and the planet. Modern Farmer exists for people who want to be a part of that movement—it is for window-herb growers, career farmers, people who have chickens, people who want to have chickens and anyone who wants to know more about how food reaches their plate.
We decided to publish two different duck covers: a Magpie fronts subscriber and Modern Farm shop copies, while the playful Pekin will pop up on newsstands starting June 16th.
Inside, an eight-page feature details both breeds—along with 10 others—and delivers advice on everything from ordering hatchlings to feeding and housing your flock. Also in the summer issue: how to save tomato seeds and build a compost bin, recipes from America’s most farm-friendly chefs, an in-depth look at the environmental hazards of fertilizer run-off, and much, much more.
