The Farmers’ Register, a Monthly Publication

A bucolic farm scene graces the title page of the Farmers' Register, a monthly publication "devoted to the improvement of the practice, and support of the interests of agriculture" that was founded by Edmund Ruffin and edited by him from 1834 until 1842. Ruffin, who served as president of the Virginia State Agricultural Society, identified himself as "a practical farmer of Virginia from 1812."
