What is The New Homesteader’s Almanac?
The New Homesteader’s Almanac is designed to give you an online resource of information for your home, garden, pasture, and barn. Seasonal information to help you with chores, such as sowing and harvesting crops, preserving food, and caring for livestock are topics to watch for on our website. We also share fun information about holidays, crafting, and homesteading life, as well as money saving articles to help you stretch your budget.
We hope you find plenty of helpful and entertaining informtion as you browse The New Homesteader’s Almanac.
This website is still fairly new and we are having fun writing new articles and investigating ways to make the site easier to navigate. Feel free to contact us if there is a topic you would like to read about, or if you have suggestions, concerns, or questions.
What The New Homesteader’s Almanac Is Not…
This website is not intended to take the place of The Old Farmer’s Almanac. We will not be delving into astrological signs or planting by moon phases. That is all fine and good, but if you would like that information, please refer to The Old Farmer’s Almanac.
The New Homesteader’s Almanac is not an annual publication…
We understand the irony of calling an online publication an almanac…which is typically an annual publication with a forecast of the weather, moon phases, and the like. However, almanacs also traditionally contain plenty of other general interest information.
Here is an online definition of Almanac:
noun: almanac, plural noun: almanacs
an annual calendar containing important dates and statistical information such as astronomical data and tide tables
yearbook, calendar, register, annual, manual, … more
a handbook, typically published annually, containing information of general interest or on a sport or pastime
We are hoping to have a calendar feature in the future. It’s all a work in progress.
