Welcome to GRIT Magazine, the bi-monthly publication that celebrates the beauty of country living and the importance of community and stewardship. Whether you're already living in the countryside or aspire to make the move, GRIT is here to inspire and educate you on all things rural. Our readership consists of well-educated individuals who choose to live on the land for various reasons. While some may not work their land in the conventional sense, they all share a deep appreciation for the serenity and fulfillment that comes with life off the beaten path.

An Evolution in Rural Living

Old and New GRIT Old and new covers of GRIT Magazine

GRIT Magazine has come a long way since its inception in 1882. While we remain grounded in our values of community, family, positivity, and sharing, we have transformed from a respected newspaper to a sophisticated, full-color magazine. Our focus has shifted to provide practical advice, product reviews, livestock guides, gardening tips, DIY information, and heartwarming stories of individuals who have embraced the country lifestyle. Each issue of GRIT covers a wide range of topics, including country living, land management, wildlife, gardening, and seasonal food.
