About Us

34 Star Publishing Inc. delivers high-quality agricultural data and analysis to readers of The Wheat Farmer/ Row Crop Farmer newsletters and the annual Wheat Varieties for Kansas and the Great Plains book, formerly by publisher Steve Watson. As new owners of the titles, we’ll be working with Steve Watson for the coming year as he transitions into retirement.

34 Star Publishing Inc. is produced in the heart of wheat country in southwest Kansas by native Kansans.

Publisher Layton Ehmke grew up on a wheat farm in western Kansas and worked in journalism and publishing since graduating from the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Kansas State University in 2004. He also has a master’s from The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University. His work has appeared in the Associated Press, online news media, various national magazines, and in several books.

Editor and Operations Manager Jen Mosier has written, photographed, and designed for news outlets and magazines while earning her master’s in New Arts Journalism at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She also holds a bachelor’s in fine art from SAIC and a bachelor’s in Spanish from Kansas State University.
