As surely as the Sun rises in the east and maple leaves turn color in autumn, The Old Farmer's Almanac
is back—and it's better than ever!
Recognized for generations by its familiar yellow cover, America's best loved annual and oldest continuously published peridocial (now in its 223rd year!) promises to be "useful, with a pleasant degree of humor," thus once again both fulfilling the mission set forth by its founder Robert B. Thomas and readers' expectations. This edition is packed with wit, wisdom, tips, advice, facts, fun, and recipes, including . . .

• making sausages at home
• wildfires' effect on weather
• love potions
• beauty secrets
• odds of almost everything
• unmasked mysteries of plant seed dispersal
Plus, Moon phases and other celestial sightings, tides, gardening tables, best days, and too much more to mention.

The Old Farmer's Almanac is often imitated, but never equaled. Accept no substitutes!
What is 225 years old yet always of the moment? The Old Farmer’s Almanac!

As the nation’s iconic calendar, the 2017 edition will predict and mark notable events; glance back and look forward, with historic perspectives on food, people, and businesses; salute legendary customs and folklore; hail celestial events; explore, forage, and cultivate the natural world; forecast traditionally 80 percent–accurate weather; inspire giggles and perhaps romance; and more—too much more to mention—all in the inimitably useful and humorous way it has done since 1792.
