The Guild represents editors and journalists, broadcasters, photographers and PR/marketing specialists working in British agriculture, commercial horticulture and other rural industries.
Our members work freelance and full-time for newspapers, specialist publications, consumer magazines, in radio and on television, in online media, for agencies, commercial businesses and other organisations in the rural sector.
The Guild aims to promote the highest standards among journalists, communicators, photographers and others who specialise in agriculture, horticulture, rural affairs and related subjects.
It represents members' interests and maintains relations with appropriate representative bodies, while providing a forum, through meetings and social activities, to meet people in these industries.
The Guild also seeks to maintain contact with similar organisations overseas, and to continue membership of and support for the International Federation of Agricultural Journalists and the European Network of Agricultural Journalists.
It promotes the continuing professional development of Guild Members and the provision and training of new entrants into journalism related to agriculture, horticulture, food, the countryside and the rural environment.
