How to find us, follow us, or freelance for us


AGDAILY, an all-digital farming and rural lifestyle publication, is among the fastest-growing agricultural outlets in the United States. Our focus is on the livelihoods of farmers, from the products they grow and raise to the way science and faith and family intersect with their lives. We publish several new pieces of content a day and actively engage with the younger-generation farm and food audience on social media. Most all of AGDAILY’s contributors are veteran ag communicators who live and breathe farm and rural life on a daily basis, so they are best able to stay connected to the trends, issues, concerns, and changes that this industry is experiencing.

AGDAILY has won several awards since its launch in July 2016. Among the most notable ones are:

1st Place Agricultural Publication Social Media (2022 & 2021) from the Agricultural Communicators Network (formerly the American Agricultural Editors Association): For engaging content and tone across multiple social media platforms. Earned 2nd Place in this category in 2020.

1st Place Agricultural Publication Website (2020 & 2019) from the Agricultural Communicators Network: For compelling and varied content, coupled with an engaging layout.

1st Place Livestock Publication Website (2018) from the Livestock Publications Council: For strong content and design that supports the livestock industry.

Best Agriculture Website — Region IV (2017) from the National Agri-Marketing Association: For the best agricultural content directed at farmers, ranchers and growers.

AGDAILY has been rated by the independent website MediaBiasFactCheck as having High Factual Reporting and a clean fact-check record and as being among the Least Biased news sources available. The MediaBiasFactCheck website says: “Editorially, AgDaily only reports on political issues as it relates to agriculture and farming with minimal bias. … Further, when it comes to science they support the consensus on climate change and GMOs. Finally, they also combat misinformation from purveyors of pseudoscience such as the Food Babe. In general, the news is reported factually and from a pro-science and low biased perspective.”

AGDAILY, which is owned and operated by Carbon Media Group, is one of the only agricultural news sites rated by MediaBiasFactCheck. Carbon has two other flagship news and lifestyle websites: ActionHub.com and OutdoorHub.com. Carbon is a subsidiary of Toronto-based VerticalScope Inc.

Who’s Behind the Content

Managing Editor 

Ryan Tipps (rtipps@agdaily.com) spent more than 15 years in the newspaper, magazine, and digital publishing industries before joining Carbon Media Group as the founding editor of AGDAILY.

His journalism career has taken him across the country and through many walks of life: Ryan was the lead copy editor on a 2007 Pulizer Prize finalist series about America’s reliance on private military personnel; he earned his digital-media chops as National Columnist for D3football.com, the nation’s top small-college football website; and he spearheaded coverage of farming issues and ag technology for several years for The Roanoke Times newspaper, winning numerous awards from the Virginia Farm Bureau Federation and the Virginia Press Association. He also received the 2019 Alltech Cultivating Young Ag Journalists Award and is currently Level Three in the Master Writer Program of the Agricultural Communicators Network for his human interest, editorial, and enterprise writing, and a Level One Master Photographer. As someone who lives far outside the city limits, agvocating amid the trends, issues, and public perceptions of farming is an important part of who Ryan is.

An Indiana native, Ryan graduated from Wabash College and studied in Athens, Greece, before moving to Virginia and getting a master’s degree in Agriculture and Life Sciences from Virginia Tech, where he was inducted into the Gamma Sigma Delta ag honors society. He went on to volunteer with the USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, helping to educate farmers about conservation- and no-till strategies. 

Ryan lives with his wife, two children, and a couple of horses and other animals on a garlic farm in Central Virginia. You can read his AGDAILY articles here. Among his most notable ones are:

Associate Editor

Heidi Crnkovic (hcrnkovic@agdaily.com) has deep-seated roots in the West working within the agriculture industry. Heidi believes that AGDAILY can help industry professionals and consumers to bridge communication gaps by providing timely, resources with the use of technology. 

Heidi brings “boots in the dirt” experience as a producer and agricultural communicator after working on Montana and New Mexico ranches, as the director of communication for the Arizona Cattle Growers’ Association, and an agricultural educator in New Mexico. 

A New Mexico native, Heidi graduated from New Mexico State University with a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Science. After relocating back to New Mexico in 2019,  she returned to NMSU to complete her Master of Arts in Extension Education.

Heidi lives with her daughter in Otero County, NM. She is an active volunteer in 4-H, junior livestock, Cowbelles, and FFA. 

Diversity Issues Intern 

Saul Reyes (sreyes@agdaily.com) believes it is important to understand the societies of people that make up the agricultural industry just as it is important to understand the industry as a whole.

Reyes was born and raised in the Central Valley of California. He is an undergraduate student at California State University, Chico, majoring in plant and soil science — crops and horticulture option and in multicultural and gender studies — ethnic studies option. He also minors in intersectional Chicanx/Latinx studies and public relations. He was selected as the first American Farmland Trust Agriculture Communications Intern at AGDAILY, serving during calendar year 2022.

Reyes blends his many fields of study to research societal issues in agriculture and promote agricultural literacy to underrepresented communities. He has goals of becoming a plant protection and pest management specialist and is interested in weed science and entomology. Topics of focus of his include food insecurity, farmworkers rights, and agricultural literacy.

Reyes is a Level One in the Master Writer Program of the Agricultural Communicators Network for his column titled The forgotten unifying superpowers of agriculture.
