Gary Struthers

Today’s Ontario Federation of Agriculture media round-up is the last one for Gary Struthers, who’s retiring after a full career in journalism, communications and farming. Gary was born and raised on a farm in Perth County and worked as a reporter, photographer and district editor at the Stratford Beacon Herald for 17 years. He went farming after that in northern Ontario but kept active as a journalist,  freelancing with the North Bay Nugget and the Kirkland Lake Gazette. His career finishes today with the federation, where he’s been for the past 11 years.

Best wishes in your retirement, Gary. You’re one of the steadiest people in the business, and you’ll be remembered for your commitment to helping agriculture be more widely understood.

And maybe now you’ll have more time to play your sax!
