It gets better

**A site sold recently is two-year-old thefarmshed.com.au, to a Sydney marketing and research group, Axiom Australasia.

Thefarmshed is claimed to be one of Australia's "most popular rural websites", a portal acting as a farmers' trading post, and numbers Wesfarmers, Rural Press, National Australia Bank and JB Were among its shareholders.

The original concept drew seed capital of more than $40 million, making thefarmshed something that aspired to be more than a mere domain name and shop front.

Has it succeeded? No. ** it's now a redirect to Fairfax Agricultual Weather weatherzone.com.au/agriculture/
