Ewen Macpherson printed then published The Wyndham Farmer for 39 years and when he died in 1934, his son Doug took over the business. Doug ran the paper for 20 years, with the last issue coming out on 19 February 1955. They closed during a prosperous period purely because they could not get any staff.
