“I’m thrilled to be involved with the next phase in the brand’s evolution,” Miller said in a statement. 

Modern Farmer, the fashionable and informative farming publication whose editorial staff left their posts last week, putting the publication’s future in doubt, has hired an interim editor to oversee the publication of the magazine’s summer issue and recruit new editorial staff, the company announced in a press release.

Sarah Gray Miller, most recently the editor in chief of Country Living, will take over the position formerly held by Modern Farmer’s founder, Ann Marie Gardner, who stepped down in December over an ongoing dispute with the magazine’s financial backer, Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra, over the direction of the publication.

The remaining editorial staff, including an executive editor who joined in October, followed not long after.

“I continue to be excited by, and committed to, the future of Modern Farmer,” said Giustra in a statement. “Sarah Gray Miller brings a wealth of experience in the food, horticulture, and lifestyle categories. She’s the ideal editor to keep the brand moving forward.”
