Agricultural Publisher Buys American Nurseryman
Moose River Media to continue 106-year-old magazine in print.
St. Johnsbury, Vermont-based Moose River Media, a publisher serving the green and agricultural industries, has acquired the American Nurseryman Publishing Company. Included in the deal are 106-year-old American Nurseryman magazine, a book division and all affiliated Web properties.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
Moose River CEO Korry Stagnito says American Nurserymanâwhich publishes monthly with an 11,000 circulationâwill continue in print and will soon increase circulation. âWeâre developing a unique distribution strategy that incorporates a combination of standalone circulation and polybagging with our selected landscaping and agriculture titles,â he tells FOLIO:. âThe pending USPS rules relating to supplements allow us to consider some creative options.â
Stagnito says that while some of American Nurserymanâs operations will remain in Chicago while others, including administrative functions, will be handled in Vermont. âWe did not extend employment to all American Nurseryman personnel.â
In addition to the magazine, American Nurseryman Publishingâs book division includes âPronouncing Dictionary of Plant Names,â âRoy Diblikâs Small Perennial Gardens: The Know Maintenance Approachâ and âA Landscaperâs Guide to Perennial Flowers.â
Moose River Mediaâs stable of brands includes Turf, which serves landscape contractors; Tree Services, for arborists; Growing and Farming, for the agricultural industry; and LawnSite.com, an online community for landscape contractors.
