Join the BAHS
Bunch of carrots Your annual subscription to the BAHS gives you two issues of Agricultural History Review, as well as any supplements we publish during the year, and two issues of Rural History Today. Two individuals at the same address can join for the price of one, and receive only one copy of each issue (‘joint subscription’). Joint subscription does not apply to the concessionary rate. You also have exclusive online access to the most recent three years’ issues of Agricultural History Review.
Individual or joint subscribers are also entitled to vote at the AGM and to apply for grants to support conferences and other initiatives. Institutional and library subscribers can give online access to the most recent three years’ issues of Agricultural History Review to their affiliates, as described in our terms and conditions.

Please fill in the form below. Pressing Submit will take you to a page where you can pay by PayPal or by credit or debit card.
Annual subscription for individual or joint UK members is £30.

There is a concessionary rate of £15 for UK students not in full-time employment and UK residents who are registered unemployed. This does not apply to joint subscriptions.

Annual subscription for individual or joint members overseas is £42. This reflects the extra postage cost.
