top rural
influencers and
advocates

Welcome to The Ruralist.

We’re showcasing top-shelf representatives of rural living.

Regardless of timezone, zip code, or area code, dreamers and doers are evoking positive change in their rural communities.

Through relationships, businesses, social media, and Rolodexes - and, yes, even their location - rural influencers are making a tremendous impact - an impact that is not limited to their city limit sign. From health and wellness to policy, and from small businesses to global ventures, the Ruralist is comprised of true change makers who, honestly, would be embarrassed to make the list. (Their grandparents, though, will absolutely press print and hang it on the refrigerator.)

what is the ruralist?

A COLLABORATION PROJECT CREATED BY
RURAL GONE URBAN + RURAL REVIVAL

Rural Gone Urban and Rural Revival, two rural-raised, women-owned businesses, are not only focused on telling the story, but they’re also focused on empowering others to tell their own story.

Every day, we meet people who are doing amazing things in and for rural communities, and we know we’ve just scratched the surface. It's our goal that by recognizing and celebrating hard-working Ruralists for their ceaseless and resilient impact in their communities, we can inspire others to begin sharing their stories and becoming their own catalyst for change.
