About The Old Farmer’s Almanac

For almost 217 years, The Old Farmer’s Almanac has published useful information for people in all walks of life: tide tables for those who live near the ocean; sunrise tables and planting charts for those who live on the farm; recipes for everyone who likes to eat; and forecasts for those who don’t want the question of weather left up in the air. The Almanac, North America’s oldest continuously published periodical, comes out every year in September and is based in Dublin, New Hampshire. The words of the Almanac’s founder, Robert B. Thomas, guide it still: “Our main endeavor is to be useful, but with a pleasant degree of humor.”
