About South East Farmer magazine

Published since 1982, South East Farmer is the region’s favourite farming magazine. 45,000 farmers, growers and allied traders read the magazine each month in the counties of Kent, Sussex, Essex, Surrey, Hampshire, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire.

Available in print and online, we proudly cover all types of farming in the area, with regular features on Arable, Fruit, Vegetables and Livestock, as well as covering newsworthy topics. We keep farmers informed on the latest industry trends and on matters they need to know. Popular monthly features include: Editor’s Farm Visit, Rural Property, Farm Construction, Legal Issues and Market Reports.

We have a plethora of well known farming corespondents who write for the magazine every month such as Richard Wood, Nick Adames, Stephen Carr, Sarah Calcutt, Alan West, Elved Phillips and Kevin Attwood.

The online companion to the magazine www.southeastfarmer.net offers extended content with breaking daily regional and national news, arable and livestock coverage, winners from regional shows plus supporting video material. An integral part of the site is its social media connectivity, offering important links to Facebook and Twitter where we are followed and liked by many.

The magazine is part of the Evegate Publishing range of titles that includes South East Business, Farm Machinery and Vineyard print publications and websites.

Victoria Rose

Victoria Rose


​Victoria Rose is the latest recruit to our reporting team at South East Farmer.

She grew up surrounded by dairy farms in Cheshire, and has always held the countryside close to her heart. But it was not until moving to Kent in 2013 that this fascination became a daily reality. With a keen interest in history and people, coupled with a love of investigating and writing, Victoria began her higher education studies at the University of Leicester where she read international relations and history.

While working at Coast Communications, Victoria cut her teeth on the region’s rural sector with clients in the agricultural sector such as BTF Partnership, Gullands Solicitors, Produced in Kent and Hadlow College.

Victoria has taken active role in the Kent Federation of Young Farmers’ Clubs, heading up the county’s marketing and publicity and eventually becoming vice chair for both Ashford and District and Kent County.

She has joined us from Biddenden Vineyards.
