The Legacy of The Old Farmer's Almanac
This has been the coldest snowiest year that I can remember for many, many years- it is the consistency of the freezing cold for weeks on end with no breaks - I do hope your mild spell predicted for southern Ontario in January comes thru. The worst part is you can not go for walks and your body stiffens up. Be kind to us soon. Your northern cousins wishing you a happy new year.
I really don't see that much difference between the two except when they were published. I really don't rely on them at all because the weather has changed alot since the time that they were published.
I usually rely on the "The Weather Channel".
Hi Danica, Thanks for asking! There have been many different kinds of almanacs over the years—writers’ almanacs, regional farming almanacs, and newfangled almanacs. We can only speak to this almanac. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is the oldest still published almanac and the best-selling almanac across North America. It’s got a yellow cover and this year it’s 225 years young! We only publish one almanac though it comes in hardcover, paperback, or digital editions as you can see here: https://store.almanac.com/store/almanacs
With all good wishes, your OFA editors
Please create a Facebook page. Your fans are getting confused, because the other "Farmers Almanac" is getting all of the viewings!
I try to tell people which one they should use, but without a FB page with updates, you are losing them!

We ramped up this page just a few years ago and there are now over 800,000 fans at the time of this writing! However, as you said, it's easy for people to confused, and many folks who think they're on our Facebook page are actually on another almanac's page.
If you have any other suggestions of how to spread the news that The Old Farmer's Almanac Facebook page is live and well, your feedback is always welcome. We just have a button at the top of our Web site to our social media pages and in our e-newsletters.
