This is the website for an epic newspaper written by and for rural punks.

The Country Grind Quarterly is a smokin' new magazine for the epically badass rural punks, back to the land skids, backwoods anarchists, etc! It's specifically for those folks who have ran away from the cities in search of a simpler, saner, and more fulfilling life. All content is written by fellow rural punks and is intended for a rural punk audience. Whether you live in a small town, deep in the bush, on a farm in the prairies, or tucked away in the mountains. Whether you're on grid or off. A vegan gardener or a hunter/trapper. You're a lone wolf or you've got a spouse and kids. As long as you're a punk and you don't live in a city, this magazine is for you.
