Good evening, may I ask do you have electronic gift cards for sale? I like purchasing gift cards.
Thank you.

I am having a difficult time finding the West Coast Edition. Is it available on the website? I seem to be only able to order the trade edition.

Submitted by

We are not selling the Western Edition online. Only the National Edition of the Classic Almanac, which will work for any location in the US. If you are not interested in performing the calculations necessary to get the exact time, tide, and celestial event info for your zip code, our My Local Almanac product would help you.

I read about it in polisch book. Author was in Arizona, and advertise your Almanac and its hole, upper left. :-)
Is there anybody who might be able to sent former Almanac to Poland, so that I would be able to check usefulness that hole :-).

Looking at the long range forecast, I am wondering if I am in zone 2 or zone 3? (Atlantic corridor or Appalachians), the line on the map seems to run right down the middle of my area. I am west of Richmond and east of Roanoke in central Virginia (Lake Anna area). The forecast for the two zones are slightly different, by the way....

Submitted by

If moving is not an option, you could go with the one you like best or visit this page and enter your zip code. It will spit out your Almanac weather region.

I went to the zip code site, put in my zip (which happens to be WESTERN Alleghany county MD, and the map brought up Frederick county MD, which is 2 counties EAST of me. I know its difficult to get an accurate map. I then clicked on the OHIO Valley section and it brought up the correct region for me. Our area is a tricky county to forecast, BUT, you might want to work on how your map reads zip codes! Im sure there are many zip codes that get the same incorrect results. Just thought you might want to know and possibly update/upgrade your system. Other than that, love your site!

Submitted by

Perfect....at the least it clarified which zone I am in, lol....Appalachians it is....
Thanks!

Will you ever be releasing previous versions- such as the 1915 and 1815 editions- of the Almanac via digital copy?

Submitted by

There are no plans at this time. The replica Almanacs are reserved for loyalty program members only.

How can I get one of those books that has the three and four numbers for various lottery playing or lotto numbers.

I am ordering mine today becuase all I have been hearing is that this winter will be worse than last here in the Metropolitain Washington DC area. Where no one knows how to drive in the snow and with just the hint of snow all the Milk, Bread and Toiletpaper will be gone off of the shelves in all the grocery stores. The Federal Government is the only World Government that closes down when it snows. Unreal!!!

Submitted by

We go south to Texas for the winter, does it cover there also or just Canada ?

Submitted by

Any where from Houston west
it doesn't snow that way.

Submitted by

This Almanac covers just the US. We also have a Canadian Edition that cover just Canada.

Submitted by

Good for .so many years and many years to come. Hope so !!!!!!!

Submitted by

I also love reading the Old Farmer's Almanac each and every year. I've kept all my old ones and refer back to them quite a bit! Looking forward to this new one...

Submitted by

Many thanks, Francis, for taking the time to share your comment. We appreciate your continued patronage and hope the 2015 Almanac meets your expectations! Sincerely, your OFA editors

Submitted by

I'm looking forward to getting my copy! We used to get them when I was little and I enjoyed reading all the articles as well!

Submitted by

Are the Historic replica editions of the 1915 and 1815 Old Farmer's Almanacs also hardcover?

Submitted by

No. They are paperbacks like the originals.

I want to order the hard Cover edition 2015

You have come to the right web page!

Submitted by

I am writing from Poland, Europe. I would like to congratulate all of you. It is such a great piece of American culture. Almanac rules!

Submitted by

We agree. Thank you.

Submitted by

I ordered the Hardcover edition even though the shipping is the same as the regular book. I also got the FA for kids volumes 1-4. Still the same amount in shipping.

I am still relatively new to gardening and I was so eager to get everything in the ground and started in my green house. My friend has an almanac calendar and went by those dates on what to do when. I thought it was strange as I had my squash in the ground 2 weeks before hers from transplants, and hers grew twice the size of mine and produced more than twice as much! I planted mine at her house because we did a garden together since I have limited space where I live. They were right next to each other and there was a very notable difference. I am going to be studying this book from the moment I get it! I've got to learn this stuff lol!

Submitted by

Thank you SO much KirstenElaine, for your comment! I have for many years wondered how, if grown side by side, plants set out earlier would compare to those planted by moon-phase guidelines.

Submitted by

The story goes in our family that my dad thought his dad's old fashioned planting by the moon was silly. He set up his half of the garden his own way. My grandfather planted by the OFA calendar. Dad got a gorgeous garden. Granddad got the vegetables. Dad planted by the moon ever after.

Submitted by

does the almanac include gardening times and tips about everything i can find online and does it include weather as well because i am also a first time gardener and i am doing herbs next year as well as a lot more so i wanted to know what kind of info it contained

Submitted by

I grew up on a big farm with my grandparents, and they didn't do anything without checking the almanac first. My grandpa actually taught me how to read with the almanac, and I've been hooked ever since. Some of my favorite childhood memories are of my grandpa and our times spent reading "the good ol' almanac" as he affectionately called it. I wouldn't trade those days for the whole world.

Submitted by

The Old Farmer's Almanac has been part of my life for the past 60 some odd years. My Dad would read my bedtime story from it when I was a child, and when I began to read, I would read from it along side my Dad. It has been my "go to" for gardening, home remedies, recipes, and of course, the weather. I anxiously look forward to the new issue every year, and begin reading it as soon as I get it. Thanks Old Farmer's Almanac for being an integral part of my life!

Submitted by

I can't rate it yet because I haven't seen it yet. I just wanted to let you know that the other two "off brands" have their almanacs out and in stores such as Tractor Supply and Walmart already. I almost bought one as I decided you weren't going to distribute yours to stores this year for some reason. I like this publication, but I can't see paying shipping on something I could normally buy in the store. I'm glad I checked here to see if it would be sold in stores this year, but I wanted to let you know that the off brands are already out and being sold and read

Submitted by

I'm sure Wallmart is paying those off brands a very low price to entice shoppers to purchase. Thank goodness the Farmers Almanac knows their worth and stands by their product.

Submitted by

This isn't about the Almanac but rather your store. Perused the kitchen items and was so happy to see the grape designs, especially the kitchen towels and potholders. Can hardly wait til payday so I can place my order, plus get the grape shopping bag!

Thanks for a great website and all of your helpful information.

Submitted by

Weather is always interesting , you add even a measure of insight for our next day forecast thanks

Submitted by

I have the paperback that gave me access to the online version. I just had to register. Is the 2015 edition the same way??

Submitted by

The one-time offer last year for print readers was for a free My Local Almanac, which is not an online version of the printed Almanac, but a companion product that normally sells for $1.99. My Local gives you detailed information, such as sunrise and sunset times, customized for your zip code.

Because of your comment we are now in the process of making My Local Almanac available for free for print readers every year. 

Submitted by

My Local Almanac access is now available!

Submitted by

That would be great!
I have really enjoyed "My Local" this year.

Submitted by

Dear Almanac:

Do your company still distributed the almanac books that has the different days and numbers of lottery numbers? Such as daily cash 3's, play 4's, fantasy 5's and the lottery.

Submitted by

No, that is not us. You may be thinking of another publication.

Submitted by

I relly enjoyed it

Submitted by

I like the sunrise and sunset times and length of day. When the days get longer in dead of winter gives one something to look forward to.

Submitted by

I do love reading the alamanac

Submitted by

I hove been reading this almanac since I was 10 years old I am now 52.....

Submitted by

Spanky, Many thanks for your longtime patronage! We are honored—and hope that this year lives up to your expectations. Sincerely, your Almanac editors

Submitted by

Be very careful when buying the Collector's Edition. Specifically mind the 'Loyalty Program'. They will continue to send and bill you for a book every year. If you don't want this make sure you call them and opt out.

I do not believe this was made clear to me until I received an unwanted copy and a bill for 15.95 + shipping.

Thankfully, customer service was kind enough to cancel this unwanted annual subscription.

Submitted by

Kailbott, Thank you for taking the time to write. Most of our readers get the Almanac year in and year out faithfully. Our loyalty program is intended to make getting the Almanac easier. Because the Almanac comes at the lowest possible price and with free Almanac gifts not available anywhere else—the program is popular. The loyalty program is no obligation, cancel at any time and we mean it. Before the next year’s Almanac is shipped we will notify you. No one will pay for anything they don’t love and want.

$6.95 shipping for a $6.99 paperback book. NO THANKS!!!

I agree. I will buy it at Lowes/Home Depot.

Thank you, Cheryl! Lowe's and Home Depot will indeed carry The 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac, starting September 9, if not before. Here are all the retailers across North America:

Shipping cost more that the book... NO thanks

Submitted by

We appreciate and thank you for buying the Almanac no matter where you choose to get it. Amazon certainly offers great deals. What we have that they don’t (besides higher shipping costs) is free gifts worth $15.99 of you buy our Hardcover Collector’s Edition. Two of the free gifts are replica Almanacs from 100 and 200 years ago. You can only get them from Almanac.com.

Submitted by

Yes, the shipping cost seems out of proportion to the price of the Alamanac, and yes, shipping can be found cheaper or free elsewhere. I choose to support The Old Farmer's Almanac company though. They provide me pretty good service and value for the money I spend here. Plus, there is an entire website packed full of FREE information for my use every day. I'd say that was worth the shipping cost of $6.95 once a year.

Submitted by

I agree. It's worth the shipping to get the original alamanc and free gifts are fun! I only wish I could afford the hard copy so I could get more free items.

Submitted by

Why, thank you, Cristina! We strive to keep the cost of The Old Farmer's Almanac down and it is indeed a publication with yearly information that we hope will last all year 'round!

Submitted by

Looked like a great deal at $6.99, then I found out the cheapest shipping is $6.95. ah, that doesn't make sense. I walk into any book store and save the incredibly ridiculous $6.95 shipping. 99% shipping now that turely is a new forecast! Shame for shame for shame.

Submitted by

Just wondering how long it takes you and how much it costs to drive to the store and pick up a copy....with no free gifts.

Submitted by

Pre-order from Amazon if you have Prime. Free shipping and the book is just 16 cents more than on here. Their other merchandise is cheaper on Amazon too and it all qualifies for Prime shipping.

Submitted by

Worth $6.99 and then some! 10 of 10!

Submitted by

Thank you, Russell. Your kind comments go a long way. Appreciate the support—and smile.

I follow the Old Farmer's Almanac closely for almost every aspect for practical information, especially gardening, lawn development, shrub and tree planting and animal care. I have been reading this almanac since I learned to read at the age of 7 years, when my grand father introduced it to me as I sat beside him or in his lap on our front porch. It was the first thing he read every morning before breakfast, then the Bible. It is a time honored tradition in our family. I now read my hard copy with my grandson looking on, in much the same way as did I as a child. I thank you good folk at OFA for all of the hard work in research and development you put into each publication! God bless and Merry Christmas!

how long do you boil beets to get the skin off and how long do you can them for in a hot water bath

Submitted by

Hi Lori,
I have found that with medium sized Beets if you just place in cold water and bring to the boil,then
reduce the heat and allow to simmer for 45 minutes you will be able to gently peel the Beet with no problem at all

So, what's not to like about Farmer's Almanac?
One of the best reads there is.

Submitted by

my grandfather was a farmer in the island and he send for the almanac every year. I had fun reading and planting along with him but I enjoyed the horoscope and the astrological
predictions most.

Submitted by

My aunt used the almanac to plant her garden every year. She had wonderful supply of everything she planted. One year someone talked her out of using the almanac. It was the only time she lost everything in it. "Never again", she said. She went back to her old way of doing it.

Cant wait to get my books!

Always packed with hours of fascinating, useful and entertaining reading. But I was disappointed recently when I bought the Southwest edition at Home Depot and saw how chocked-full of ads it was. I hadn't looked at an Almanac for a long time and didn't remember that being the case years ago. Personally (make a note of this, marketing department), I wouldn't mind paying more for an ad-free version. I mean, jeez, aren't we bombarded enough on a daily basis with advertising? I don't know if the hardcover is the same, but I sure hope not. It's a book, not a magazine...

Submitted by

I totally agree

Submitted by

Hey Russ - I guess you've never had the privileg of reading Modern Farmer. Not sure if it's still around, but in the fifties it was near as big as the Sears winter catalog and chock full of ads for chicken medicines. Sure came in handy in the three holer.

Submitted by

RussG,  Ads have been part of the Almanac for over 100 years now (looking through the old ads can be great fun). The ads are what allows us to produce and distribute our content for the lowest price possible. Curiously, when our readership has been surveyed many report that they enjoy looking through the ads and will even thumb through them first. While our Ad Sales Department probably disagrees with you, we do sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write us.
