Welcome to The Prairie Land Buzz – a FREE publication developed to promote pride in our region’s heritage.  The editorial platform of The Buzz is simple.  Stories are about the people – farmers, gardeners, artists, scientists, musicians, educators, business owners and entrepreneurs – all within the context of the region, and the spirit of the people.

We also have special departments, like free classified ads and a calendar of events in every issue.  And because living on and with the land has always been so important to the region, farming, gardening and agriculture will always have a strong presence in the magazine.

The first issue of The Buzz was printed and distributed in December 2009 and has experienced exciting and steady growth with each issue thanks largely in part to loyal readers and supportive businesses and advertisers

If you have comments, questions, or even suggestions on a possible story, go to the contact page and send us an email.  We’d love to hear from you.

And if you like The Buzz, make sure you patronize and thank the advertisers. Their support is the reason the magazine can be brought to you FREE every month!

Our Mission

To promote pride in our region, its heritage and people by sharing their positive and uplifting stories, to promote small businesses, especially locally owned, and to provide those businesses with a cost effective means of advertising to a broad area.
