Old Farmers Almanac
Ill bet you have one or two of these laying around somewhere... The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
It’s one of the traditional signs that the year is coming to an end, the latest edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac is now hitting shelves across the country, and on-line.
Ben Kilbride with the Almanac says while much has changed since founded in 1792, many of the key principles of weather, gardening and trivia remains the same.
He says one of his favorite reoccurring segment focuses specifically on the American farmer…
“We interviewed a number of farmers from around the country and asked them what it takes to be a farmer in their area, what troubles they’ve gone through trying to get started, what has worked for them, how they are trying to be more conscience of climate change and those kinds of things, and just really trying to get to know the farmers who are growing our food. Which is immensely important, now more than ever I think.”
Kilbride says it’s the Old Farmers Almanac is a connection to a simpler time.
“The Almanac has a lot of the traditional values of homesteading and farming and gardening that are still really important and are really important now. So, it has all of that and it has lots of new information that you don’t find on our website and you can’t find in a package like this anywhere else. So, it’s got a little bit of the old, it’s got a little bit of the new, and I think it can be very useful for anyone.”
