FARM AND FIRESIDE started publishing in 1877. The early content served as an inexpensive medium to advertise agricultural implements. The journal included responses to reader inquiries and some short story fiction. As farming became more industrialized, FARM AND FIRESIDE adopted a new editorial style that addressed the commercialization of farming.
