New Orleans Advocate Acquires weekly Tammany Farmer.

The New Orleans Advocate’s owners Wednesday expanded their footprint in St. Tammany Parish, purchasing The Farmer, a weekly newspaper that has been part of the Northshore’s civic life since 1874. Georges Media Group, headed by Dathel and John Georges, bought the newspaper from the family of Karen Goodwyn Courtney, which has owned The Farmer since 1928. Under the new ownership, The Farmer will continue to be an independent newspaper based in St. Tammany Parish. And it will be owned and printed in Louisiana.

Gary Borders, Senior Associate with Grimes, McGovern & Associates, represented the seller in the transaction.
