What is The Old Farmer’s Almanac? For more than 225 years, we’ve been the go-to resource for everything under the Sun—including the Moon! We may be “old,” but in fact we’re new every year—and even every day. Find out what makes our little yellow book so special.

Welcome to the Almanac’s HQ! We’re located in the tiny village of Dublin, New Hampshire, which is small-town America at its best—complete with Old Glory high atop her pole, a church steeple, the town hall—and New England weather! Check it all out on our webcam.
