The Old Farmer's Almanac has been a resource to farmers and gardeners since 1792, with seasonal advice, planting tips and practices, and an array of helpful and entertaining matter in every annual edition.

The writers at the almanac are looking to introduce readers across the U.S. and Canada to 21st century farmers and are looking for farmers to be a part of this project! 

For farmers, being a part of this project is quick and easy: Just answer the five questions below. Short answers (around 30 words or less) are best. Send your responses to Almanac writer Stacey Kusterbeck at staceykusterbeck@aol.com by June 1, 2016.
