About Us

Lewis Business Media produces a range of media targeted to the UK farming and food chain, and key influencers on purchasing decisions.  Farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer was launched in 1972 and continues to service generations of professional agricultural contractors. In 1993, large-scale arable farmers were added to the circulation. Both sectors have the same editorial requirements and dominate the market for farm machinery sales, along with allied consumables – tyres, spare parts, agrochemicals, silage wrap etc.

In recent times, Farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer has proved itself to be the market leader for agricultural machinery, keeping the readership right up to date with news and development. Lewis Business Media acquired farm Contractor & Large Scale Farmer in 2020.
