Tim Goodwin joined the Old Farmer’s Almanac team as associate editor in October 2021. In this role, he is responsible for many aspects of the Almanac—proofreading, fact-checking, compiling data, editing, and writing. Tim writes for The Old Farmer’s Almanac for Kids, the OFA’s catalog of calendars, and Almanac.com. He’s also part of a team that fact-checks and proofreads the monthly e-magazine EXTRA!
Tim graduated from Keene State College in Keene, New Hampshire, with a B.A. in journalism and a management minor. For one year, he studied at the University of Oregon as part of the National Student Exchange program. The first 15 years of Tim’s career were spent in the newspaper industry in New Hampshire, including a number of years as the sports editor of the Monadnock Ledger-Transcript, a biweekly publication located in Peterborough, New Hampshire. He also spent several years as the editor of the Concord Insider, a weekly magazine published by the Concord Monitor in Concord, New Hampshire. Before joining The Old Farmer’s Almanac, Tim served in the role of arts and entertainment, features, and special sections editor at the Ledger-Transcript.
When not in the Almanac’s Dublin, New Hampshire, office, Tim is spending quality family time with his wife, Mary, and their two daughters, Sophie and Penelope. Together, the Goodwin family enjoys going to the beach in Maine during the summer months and sledding in the backyard on snowy winter days—predicted by The Old Farmer’s Almanac, of course. Tim is an avid sports fan, rooting for all of the professional New England teams as well as his University of Oregon Ducks. He also enjoys taste-testing IPAs from breweries around the country.
