Harrowsmith Almanac and Bees on CHCH

By October 15, 2015No Comments

The Harrowsmith Almanac  provide  readers with everything from why goats are awesome to an in-depth look at how Canada is harnessing the wind, gardening tips, recipes, bees and neonicotinoids, wind energy, and much, much more, and, of course, the yearly weather almanac!  In the Miscellany section,  you can learn about everything from a look back at the world’s strongest woman, Quebec’s own Marie-Louise Sirois-Clouthier, to the invasive brown marmorated stinkbug. Or why today’s chickens are so much bigger than they were in the 1950’s.

“We’re really proud of what we’ve accomplished with Harrowsmith’s Almanac,” says Editor in Chief Maurice Crossfield. “The 2016 edition is 320 pages of useful and fun information for just about any taste. When the founding editors looked at the other almanacs out there they decided that Canadians deserved better. That’s a tradition that we continue to uphold.”

“The Harrowsmith brand is well known and well respected by Canadians,” says Publisher Yolanda Thornton. “Drawing on its legacy, the magazine and the Almanac in its print and digital formats continues the tradition of educating and entertaining readers with homegrown editorials on country living with a modern twist.”


Harrowsmith’s Almanac is the only publication of its kind that can honestly call itself “Made in Canada.” Other farmer’s almanacs may say ‘Canadian’ on the cover, but they are all American-made for the Canadian market. The Almanac has been a runaway success since its launch in 2008.
