The Almanac Monthly magazine is our newest creation: a digital magazine for your tablet or computer issued 12 times a year (about 60 pages per issue).  Based on a survey with our first readers, we're excited to share that the results are a big thumbs up: "I love it! Keep it coming!"

This "Monthly" is different from our yearly Almanac (no, it's not a condensed version of the annual's content).

  • The 2015 Old Farmer's Almanac is your long view, your full year planned out. 
  • This Almanac Monthly is what's now, what's next.  With ALL-NEW content, the Monthly is more timely (it's Monthly!) and just as fun, as humorous, and as useful.  

Still not sure what the Monthly is all about?

Like what you see? The Almanac Monthly will be delivered EVERY month to the mobile device of your choice or to your computer for less than $1 per issue. Only $9.99 for 12 Monthlies!

This is very confusing, and I used to do computers for a living. I gave you $9.99 for a subscription, but then I have to download an Amazon app that includes ads for thousands of other things, and when I try and get the latest issue, the app asks me for $2.99 even though I'm linking from a paid subscription.

I just want to download a PDF to the PC, and a copy on the Kindle. Can't that be done simply, and without downloading third-party software?

Submitted by

Hi Carl,
I apologize that it's confusing to get your subscription. I too wish we could make this a one-click process, but unfortunately it's not possible at this time because Amazon and Apple are in control of the app download process. I hope the following provides some help. I apologize for the length, I am trying to be as detailed as possible.
Every Monthly Subscription you purchase on our site allows you access to a PDF and a version on your Kindle and iPad. 
In order to access the Monthly on your Kindle device you can either
1) email the PDF to your Kindle device  or
2) download the app and view it within the app. You will need to authenticate your paid subscription. Follow these instructions
To access on your computer...The PDF is located in your MyAccount area
If you forget your password you can recover it from this page too.
Here's what it looks like when you sign-in. Just click on the monthly issue and it should load in your browser OR right-click and SAVE LINK AS will save the PDF file to your desktop.

Thank you! Emailing the PDF to the Kindle worked and was very helpful (I didn't even realize that my Kindle had an email address - that's a handy little). But that's seamless and much better than struggling with their overly complex app. Thank you very much.

Submitted by

You're very welcome. I hope that someday soon the app process will be simpler. But glad you have a solution. I would be interested in hearing what you think about the Monthly once you get a chance to read it. If you do have any feedback please email me here and put "Please give to Paul" at the beginning of the email.

Please send phone number to me.

This should be a momthly book I can have in my hand to read so I can put it in my book and magazine collection. I don't like to look at the computer for everything I would gladly pay for it.

Hi Pauline,
We do offer a PDF version which you can print at home. I'll include your comments for a printed and bound edition in our next editiorial meeting.
Thank you,

Looking forward to having this on my iPad, this is an electronic app why all the drivel on paper copies??

Submitted by

Would love a printed copy so I can share with other "farmers" in my group/family.

Submitted by

First off, please put dates of submissions, I have no idea if these were a month ago or 2 years ago.
Secondly, is the monthly for a year from the time you pay? So if I start in Nov of 2013, I get it til Nov of 2014--yes?
Lastly and the most important, although I use my iPad and MAC a lot BUT, I want to read magazines the old fashion way. I can't tell if the monthly is available hard copy or still working on it?

Submitted by

Is everything digital now
or do you still have the
paper version.
I would like to give a
subscription to my brother-in-law for his birthday and
he doesn't have a computer
or a kindle or ipad.

I am unable to download the November issue of Almanac. I receive this via my computer-pdf.

I went into my account to download, the process would start and then stop.

Thank you for your help.

Regina Wilcots,

Submitted by

Dear Regina,
I'm sorry that you experienced trouble downloading the November issue. I'm hoping that it was a temporary problem. I attempted a download just now and it seems to be working fine. I will email you the November issue to avoid any further issues.
Sincerely,
Paul

I just subscribed on a month to month basis to try your product out. On my iPad I can not get my magazine. What gives,you have my money where is my magazine?

Submitted by

Dear Ron,
Sorry about the problems you are having while trying to receive your issue on the ipad. I hope I can offer some assistance here. I'm assuming you've done most of these steps but if you could please check these few items I would appreciate it.
One other item that others have experienced is related to incorrect account info. In this example the person purchased the Almanac Monthly using their spouses login (because they had already been signed on before the purchase) and then tried to use their own account within the app. Once we figured this out and they used their spouces account info it worked fine.
I hope this helps, if not please send an email to tech support and put my name in the body of the email. 
Sincerely,
Paul

Hi Mary Beth;
Although I am on my computer daily for other reasons, I agree with you! I prefer the old way - the Almanac in my hands. A real book! I understand that it can be downloaded but I just like the old fashioned style! I don't have to worry if the battery is charged or if the computer is going to crash. I can retrieve the Almanac out of my personal library and read (and re-read) it!

Submitted by

Hi Mary Beth,
You may already know this .... although an internet connection is required to download an issue onto your e-reader for the first time you don't need internet access to read the issue. Some additional content (like video) does require an internet connection, but you can still enjoy the "reading" part once you've finished downloading the issue.
Thanks, Paul

In addition to producing the monthly addition in a traditional paper magazine format, it would be great if you published the annual version in large print. I know many readers who would benefit from this and would definitely purchase it. Thank you for a yearly treat! I always look forward to digging into the new almanac.

Submitted by

I agree with kmh about a large print addition .i have glaucoma and it would be a big help. Also i was planning to buy the nook edition of the 2014 almanac until i read its reviews .there are complaints that you cannot increase text size and the tables are too small to read .please address this ,,as the main reason i buy e editions is because it allows me to adjust the print size so i CAN read .thanks ya'll

Submitted by

To those that want to read a large print edition of the almanac:

2 suggestions-

1) Get a large format printer and a pack of 11 x 17 inch paper. I use an Epson Stylus Photo 1400 Series and I download the PDF version of the almanac. I then tell Acrobat Reader to scale the image on screen to fit the whole sheet of paper in the large printer. I only print the pages I need, otherwise, I just read the enlarged screen, which brings me to tip number 2...

2) Get a 32" TV with a computer input. Use this as a second monitor. If your PC has only one video port, slap an additional video board in and plug a TV into it. The price on LCD televisions has come down a bit and a generic video board is all you need for reading text.

It's nice not using reading glasses with these two tips.

Old school paper like I've bought waiting on line at the store? Definitely.
Kindle? Yes.
Android? Maybe.
Print it myself via .pdf? Not a chance.

Hi G, Thanks for your comment. Glad you like the Kindle version (and we also have the ipad version). We added the PDF version because a number of folks had asked for a way to get it on their computer. The good thing is that when you puchase from our store you get ALL THREE versions. The PDF version will open within a browser for reading and can be downloaded to the local computer hard disk for viewing off-line or printing a copy. Thanks again, Paul

Hi, Paul. I looked for editorial guidelines for freelancers who would like to submit pitches for the OFA Monthly but wasn't able to locate any. Would you mind directing me to the proper location/contact? An email is fine, too, if you'd prefer not to post it publicly.

Thank you,

Adrienne

Since upgrading to IOS 7 I can no longer read the monthly almanac. When I try to swipe up to read the rest of a story the application crashes. Have tried reloading it and still does not work.

Submitted by

UPDATE: We submitted an update for the app on Tues Sept 24. It's in the queue waiting for Apple to approve. I imagine with the new iOS7 release that there may be a backlog. We apologize for the inconvenience and I'll let you know as soon as we hear from Apple.

Submitted by

Have you installed the fix yet? Any chance you could email me when it is installed? You might also want to consider an email to all of your monthly subscribers since many of them will be wondering what happened.

Submitted by

Hi TJKilian,
I just received an email this morning that the new app is approved and available for update. I appreciate your patience while we were waiting for Apple's approval.
Sincerely, 
Paul

Submitted by

Hi TJKilian, Thank you for letting us know that the app is having trouble in iOS7. I just downloaded the new operating system and am seeing the same behavior. We are working on updating the app now but it may take a few days to get thru Apple's approval process. I appreciate your patience while we update the app.

Submitted by

Thanks for the response. Guess I would have expected that you would have tested the app on IOS 7 before it was released.

I would love to read the Almanac monthly but don't have an iPad and have no plans on getting one. Google Play magazines, Kindle magazines or pdf work for me.

Hi, Glenn, We have been exploring ways to do this in print that is affordable. I'm not sure we have a solution at this point, but we hear you and our readers. Beginning Sept 15, our goal is to offer a browser/pdf version of the OFA Monthly. I know this isn't print, however, it is a start at making the Monthly emagazine more accessible. –The Almanac.com team

I'd love it if you could make an Android app, such as for the Kindle Fire. I'd subscribe in a heartbeat!

Can't believe how many others who are commenting are on the same page with me! I do not like reading a book/magazine online. Bring on the PAPER MONTHLY and I will purchase!!!

I was ready to order this for my father-in-law when I realized it was an iPad subscription. He (and I) like the paper editions!

ya finally got my issue of the almanac. Need to have better instructions though, took me 4 days to finally figure it out.

Submitted by

I apologize for any trouble you had with the Almanac Monthly Magazine. Please contact us here if you are still experiencing any problems.

Submitted by

What about using FlipBoard? It is a digital format for online magazines. Would that help facilitate this process? it works on many different tablets as well as computers.

Also, in a Kindle, there are ways to download the Kindle software and reading material. For example, I can read on my iPad, via my Mac computer, or via the Kindle cloud reader.

I have not yet subscribed to your digital almanac. It sounds really interesting, so I was reading this column to see how it would work. Reading a .pdf version is not terribly interesting...

Submitted by

This would be a great on line magazine if you could get iTune Store to work. Just bought the monthly Almanac email said shortly you will receive an email with link to web page which I never received. The site says to go to the ITune Store and down load the app which I sure can't find. Disappointed with the whole process, no problems when I paid and checked out though.

Mr Robinson, I apologize for the trouble you had with the Almanac Monthly Magazine for iPad. Here is the link to the app in the iTunes store.

I have had a similar problem, paid for it and checked out. Got my first email saying I would momentarily receive the instructions for special site. 4 days later I am still waiting for the special instructions. They have my money I have nothing. Bad business

Submitted by

I hace the similar problem and lost 30 dollars of merchandise. I felt that the company is doing what it is using their websites as their piggy bank collecting from us in return of sending nothing.

There seems to be an outcry for hardcopies of the monthly almanac. I was excited and ready to order until I realized that the only option is digital. There's no comparison; opening the mailbox to find the almanac - like a monthly gift! Plus, paper can handle a bit of dirt and water. Tablet - not so much.

Submitted by

Oh Tania, I soooooo agree! I'd subscribe to a hard copy of a monthly Farmers Almanac.

Although I'm a very technical/computer-type person, I prefer my reading in hard copy/print format. Therefore, I, too, will purchase a print version of the monthly version if and when it becomes available. Thanks.

Submitted by

Print a paper edition and I will subscribe. Paper edition is better on the eyes and gives a person a break from looking at a screen throughout the day. I still enjoy my reading material in print form, just something about a cup of hot tee and a printed book or mag in hand that a cold glaring screen staring back at you just can not replace. Thank you ahead of time for considering a printed edition.

Submitted by

I agree. Please publish a paper edition.

Submitted by

PRINTED EDITIONS WOULD BE MOST APPRECIATED BEFORE I EVER ORDER. ADVISE WHEN AVAILABLE. THNAKS.

Submitted by

Is it still possible to order a paper copy of the book? Though I am tech savvy and do a lot via computers and android, I prefer my reading material the old fashioned way. Not to mention that I don't want or own any Apple products.

Submitted by

The printed 2014 Almanac will be available for pre-order in August.

Submitted by

......will be waiting for the August 2013 date to pre-order the monthly PRINTED version. I agree with others - a printed/hardcopy version can be taken with one anywhere - much better for reference. ....and I don't have the "new fangled machines" to read it from. Waiting.

Would like on android as well and would hope it has a zoom in feature.

Submitted by

Please do an android version. My daughter in law home schools and this would be a tremendous addition to her classroom.

I was just about to order it, but then I realized that it is only an electronic version for iPads! I don't have an iPad, and I don't like reading magazines on a computer/device! I wanted to get the print version so my little boy could enjoy it at the table - he's a big fan. Please don't foresake good old print publications!!!

This would be great for Jill and I, but we don't have an ipad. She has a Kindle and I have an Android tablet, which has a Kindle app on it.
How about making this available for the Kindle or Android tablets!!

Another vote for on my computer-I do not own nor want an Ipad,and my cell phone is just that, a phone. Not everyone is tied to Social Media or electronics.

Submitted by

Yes, please, more operating system options! Too frustrating to try to read on an iPhone--or on your website by subscription works, too! Would love to subscribe.

Submitted by

While seniors now make up 29% of the population and control the wealth, we continue to be "snubbed" by many retailers. I don't own an iPad nor do my friends. How about making this available to people who own a regular computer????????????? Otherwise you've lost me for good.

Which issues are available for iPad? Is July 2013 available?

Submitted by

July is available now. Older issues (last couple of months) can be purchased separately on the iTunes Store.

Submitted by

Make this another vote for Android edition! I had this in my cart till I realized it was only available for iPad. Sigh.

Submitted by

Great idea. I was ready to buy a subscription for my father for his birthday - until I discovered there's no print version. Too bad. I don't believe that all "old farmers" have iPads now.

Submitted by

Agree with previous replies: I don't believe that everyone who wants and reads The Old Farmer's Almanac have computers nor iPads and maybe not even a iPhone3. I am fortunate that my husband and children have provided me with these and updates. BUT, I do not want all of this on an iPad, not really on my iPhone5 LTE, but it info appears on it immediately. I LIKE to read such on my screen of the desktop and then delete what I do not wish to keep for reference. If I were to subscribe and receive all that is offered as paperless soon we would run out of GBites, then start paying for more because of unnecessary materials via e-mail. W.

Dear Sirs, the Farmers Almanac we are buying here is the complete 2013 version?

No, this is a monthly magazine for those who want more than our annual publication. It's the same type of content that our readers have enjoyed for the last 222 years!

Dear Sirs, can I have my farmers almanak mailed to mexico address???

Submitted by

New Mexico yes, old Mexico no. The Almanac only covers the US and Canada (special edition), consequently we only sell in these two countries.
