Ambrook Research publishes original research and stories on issues facing modern agriculture. We’re interested in how farmers are building profitable and sustainable businesses, and how global and national economic trends are changing how we farm. Our focus is on issues that matter to farmers, other agriculture industry practitioners, and the ag-interested public generally. Ambrook Research also welcomes short and long work explaining new agriculture research.
A good Ambrook Research piece mixes data and storytelling: our goal is to root every story in hard data on the industry. This means a good profile for us explains how a given farmer or agriculture professional’s story fits in a broader context, and a good piece on long-term trends helps readers understand the human impact.
Potential pitches for Ambrook Research could address meat-packing consolidation, changes in fertilizer techniques, challenges of urban farming, or how supply chain issues affect commodity crop prices. We look for writing that is genuinely curious about the Why, not just the What, and that tries to understand all sides of a story. We hope to cultivate a tone of genuine curiosity and openness about the ag world.
All accepted stories go through a collaborative editorial process and are paid at competitive rates, based on the amount and type of work. Ambrook Research editors are happy to work with writers on sourcing and finding useful data for a story when appropriate.
Ambrook Research is backed by Ambrook, a company making sustainability profitable in natural resource industries, starting by providing back-office financial tools for farmers.
