Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How is EXTRA! different than The Old Farmer's Almanac?
Answer: EXTRA! is NOT our annual reference book, The Old Farmer's Almanac. Rather, EXTRA! offers fresh content in an all-color digital magazine that is issued 12 months a year. The Old Farmer's Almanac is your year at hand; EXTRA! puts the month at your fingertips.
Question: Does EXTRA! have the same content as The Old Farmer's Almanac?
Answer: No. EXTRA! is NOT some sort of condensed or broken-down version of the yearly Old Farmer's Almanac. This is a completely separate publication with different content. Think of this as "EXTRAs" not included in the Almanac! Enjoy the Almanac more than once a year!
