Progressive Farmer; Best Places to Raise Farm Kids


bp_1hamilton1Onboard Informatics would like to congratulate one of our long term clients, The Progressive Farmer, on one of their latest stories, Our Absolute Best 2009  , Best Places to Raise Farm Kids. Every month Progressive Farmer talks about the unique challenges and joys of living in the country.  They provide advice on almost every aspect of country living from farming for a business, fishing with the kids, picking the ripest tomatoes, to the safest and best rural places to live and raise kids. 

Onboard has been working with Progressive Farmer since the inception of their Best Places to Live in Rural Americaeditorial five years ago, bringing their data-driven stories to life.  So we were excited to partner up with them again to produce their best places to raise farm kids story.  Before any processing took place, the Onboard team, including John Murphy, our Data Project Lead, worked in conjunction with Progressive Farmer and evaluated the relevance of every single data point to ensure that the needs of their readers would be satisfied.

We always look forward to building our relationships and partnering with media companies such as Progressive Farmer, where we can bring our comprehensive research skills and data to provide an extra dimensions to their content. Here's what Jamie Cole, Managing Editor of Progressive Farmer, had to say about his experience working with Onboard:

"I consider Onboard an extension of my editorial team after leading this very successful editorial program for five years. Every interaction I've had with the company has left me feeling they bent over backwards, sideways and turned cartwheels to get me what I needed. It was a real meeting of the minds. Can't beat that!"

We too, have greatly enjoyed working with Mr. Cole and the team at Progressive Farmer over these past five years and look forward to the opportunity to partner with them in the future to create more compelling data-driven stories.  Check out what came of "the meeting of the minds".
