Agri View: Farmer’s Almanac

Dan Agri View



Everett Griner talks about the Farmer’s Almanac, the most continuously read and used magazine in the United States in today’s Agri View.



The first edition was published in 1792 — the Old Farmer’s Almanac I mean. This year’s publication is the 225th with no interruption. Not one of the biggest selling publications, but its readers are one of the most dedicated groups to any publication. It covers a wide spectrum of information, not just farming. Its long-range weather forecasting has been as accurate as any, including today’s sophisticated and scientific methods. It is full of information on everything — from home spun wisdom, to gardening, home remedies, astronomy, and cooking. A little bit about almost any subject you can think of. But perhaps the most remarkable part of this publication is its long uninterrupted history — 225 continuous yearly publications. Get yourself a copy and read it. You will see why it makes a difference.

That’s Agri View for today. I’m Everett Griner.
