THE Darlington & Stockton Times is joining forces with Northern Farmer magazine to continue bringing the best regional agricultural news and features to the widest possible audience during the coronavirus crisis.

This Friday’s Darlington & Stockton Times will include the May edition of Northern Farmer magazine as a special pull-out.

Both titles will include all their usual features and news, including how the agricultural community has responded to the challenges posed by Covid-19.

The move comes as the restrictions imposed as a result of the crisis have caused significant issues for the normal distribution of the magazine.

Hannah Chapman, editor of the D&S Times, said: “Farming news has always been a crucial part of D&S, so it is good news for readers that the first edition of the month will now include Northern Farmer magazine, for no extra cost. In these difficult times, it is a great opportunity for both titles.”
