KNIGHTSTOWN, Ind. — Farm World’s website - www.farmworldonline.com - boasts a new Image Gallery, with photography from Farm World contributors.
Located on the front page of the Farm World website, the Image Gallery features a set of photos from the weekly newspaper. The gallery is updated each Wednesday.
“Often we have more photos than we can publish in the paper each week,” said Dave Blower Jr., editor of Farm World newspaper. “The Image Gallery allows our readers to see more of the great photos our correspondents send us each week.”
Nature scenes from eastern Kentucky grace this week’s gallery. The photos are courtesy of Kentucky Correspondent Tim Thornberry.
Photos featured in the Image Gallery have included shots of Promised Land Farm’s turkey herd by Indiana Correspondent Susan Blower and wild bird photos from Thornberry.
Previous weeks’ images are also available on the website, in the “Photo Archives” under the “News” heading at the top of the homepage.
The Image Gallery and Photo Archives are available to anyone visiting www.farmworldonline.com
