About Regional Editions
Which edition should you choose? Firstly, know that you cannot make a wrong choice on which regional edition you choose! If you live within a 12 hour drive of Atlanta choose the Southern or National Edition. If you live within a 1 to 2 day drive of San Francisco choose the Western or National Edition. All others select the National Edition. Every regional edition includes all our long-range weather predictions for the entire country. Additionally, regional editions have the same articles and number of pages as our National Edition (Except for the Canadian Edition eh. It has some Canada-specific articles and content).  The small difference in regional editions lies in the exact times for sunrise, sunset, tides, and astronomical phenomena. However, all regional editions include the instructions for calculating that same time-based information for your specific zip code anywhere in the country (With over 40,000 zip codes in the US, we can't customize the Almanac for everyone so calculations are necessary if you want to be exact). In short, you can't pick the wrong edition. If you live for example in Seattle and got the Southern Edition you would see your long-range weather forecast and be able to calculate your length of day, tide, and sunrise/sunset times.
 


Retail Locations for the US and Canada
You can always find a copy of The Old Farmer's Almanac right here, but also we have wonderful retail partners if you prefer to pick up a copy in person. See the full list of retail stores that carry America's oldest and most popular almanac!

I'd love to get this popular almanac but I am debating if I should get just for my region (I live in Vancouver, WA) or the National one. What would you suggest?

Submitted by

Oh....go ahead. I, too, now live in Vancouver, WA...and for the first time in decades, Santa forgot to bring me a new OFA.
I couldn't be without it for the new year...being an old yankee and all. Just ordered mine.

My family in the Caribbean has been selling MacDonald's Farmers Almanacs for over 30 years. However, the company has been gradually deteriorating and becoming more and more untrustworthy. I usually buy 1000 almanacs each year.
My question is, are the information applicable for the Caribbean? If so, what are your wholesale prices?
Please contact me via email given above.

For many years I have included readings from the Farmer's Almanac in my monthly radio show. I also played acoustic music from folk, bluegrass, cowboy and Americana musicians. I believe the almanac readings were a unique addition to my show, and sort of a "hallmark" for a radio show.

Submitted by

Thank you.

Submitted by

Does this addition have the extended bookstore information?

Submitted by

no

Submitted by

I love the Farmer's Almanac!!

Have you done reprints of the first ones, and would they be available?

That price must have been for expedited shipping, shipping to northern Canada, or you didn't enter your shipping address first before looking for the shipping cost.

We are always ship as much as you want for $6.95 within the contiguous US via the US Post Office. Place an order over $79 and shipping is free for the same region.

The Almanac is also available in many convenient retail stores

I've been using the Old Farmers' Almanac for years and find it handy for all types of information, anecdotal, weather, astronomical phenomena, agricultural hints, pet information and more. I don't think I'll ever be without it.

Do you have the Almanac in Large Print?

Sorry. No large print editions. The Hardcover Collector's Edition has slightly larger type and whiter brighter paper for easier reading but that is it.

I was under the impression your famous magazine was available by subscription, but it seems I am mistook! Wanted to give it as a gift. What shall I do instead? -CS

Submitted by

Although the Almanac only come out once a year unlike magazines, it is jam packed with a year's worth of humor, information, and advice. It's probably still the best gift you could give a person!

Submitted by

I've read the almanacs from the other guys and they just don't compare! This is the original and best. The planting and weather guides are useful and love the folklore.

Submitted by

I couldn't live without the advice from the Farmers Almanac.
It is so full of wisdom!

best days to plant peanuts in Va. in June?

I heard that if you cut your hair on one side of Full moon or the other it will grow faster. Which side is it, I;m trying real hard to get my hair to grow. Thanks

Submitted by

It is actually 3-5 days after the new moon, which is increasing in size; all the way up to 3-5 days before a full moon.
For places you don't want hair to grow it is always after the last quarter only. Before long you will notice a difference either way.

Submitted by

Here is our Best Days timetable with best days to cut hair to encourage growth.
