Connecting farmers, food and ideas
GrainsWest is an Alberta-based magazine with a focus on Western Canada’s agricultural sector. Co-published by Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission, GrainsWest is an award-winning quarterly magazine connecting farmers, food and ideas.
The magazine itself evolved out of a simple idea—engage with farmers. Within one year and with a stack of published issues to show for it, the mission was accomplished. However, reaching out to farmers remains the ongoing mandate of this farmer-driven publication. As long as farmers are in the fields, GrainsWest will continue to bring the timely stories that matter to those who call the hinterland home.
GrainsWest provides in-depth insight and analysis into the grains industry, while also looking at the people shaping modern day agriculture in Western Canada.
Three times a year, GrainsWest keeps Western Canada’s farmers up-to-date on the latest, most innovative ideas coming out of Canadian agriculture. Every September, this is complemented with a food issue, which fills a gap between farmers and consumers, capitalizing on Canadians’ renewed interest in this vital industry.
