Farmers' Almanac

Anticipation . . .

It’s a most wonderful time here at the Farmers’ Almanac. No not summer, which is a great season, but a time when we await the first printed copies of the newest (2011) Farmers’ Almanac from our printer.

Sure we’ve seen it on our computer screens and on print-outs, but there’s nothing like holding a “hot off the press, bound and printed edition. We work on this edition for many months, scrutinizing stories, designs, and layouts. We work long and hard making sure every i is dotted, every t crossed, and that the content is interesting, useful, and unique.

The 2011 edition is packed full of stories, tips, recipes and of course a weather predictions that everyone is going to want to read (remember last winter?)

Our printer, who is located in Ripon, Wisconsin, knows how eager we are to see that first copy. So to help with our curiosity, they recently sent some pictures of the 2011 Farmers’ Almanac being produced.

Don’t miss this year’s edition. Pre-ordering is available now and copies will start to ship the week of August 16. Stay tuned for more details on what’s inside this 194th edition of the Farmers’ Almanac.

Good morning, may you please tell me what the weather is going to be like October 18, 2013, in Haymarket, VA? Having an Hawiian Luau for BD Party. Thank you so much, Dee

I sincerely hope that we (New York) do not have a repeat of last summer. But after this winter, I am truly worried.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
