  • The Boston cultivator was the leading New England farm journal at the end of the Civil War, and maintained a considerable circulation for many years afterwards. About one-fourth of its space was devoted to farming interests and the mechanical arts; this included articles on livestock, labor-saving machines, and the best methods of cultivation. In addition, there were sections devoted to trade and commerce, moral and religious pieces, listing of marriages and deaths, proceedings of the Massachusetts legislature and Congress, and after 1843, a Young Men's Department, and a Ladies' Department, which featured tales and items on marriage. The Cultivator also published news, prices, serialized tales, poetry, an editor's column, notices of new publications, and some illustrations, mainly of machinery, plants and animals, and designs for homes. There was much original material as well as selections from the best English and American periodicals. Cf. American periodicals, 1741-1900.
