When I first started working on the Farmers’ Almanac with my dad, we would receive tens of thousands of letters a year. Many times, people would provide us with a large envelope full of their favorite jokes, hints and even recipes.
Today, we might receive a hundred letters a year, but Sandi and I make a point to respond to each and every handwritten note, and virtually every email.
When I’m asked how big the Farmers’ Almanac staff is, I reflect not only the people who work within the office, but everyone who submits information to us that finds its way into the publication. While we may not receive hundreds of thousands of letters a year now, we love hearing from you through social media, surveys, and general correspondence. Our emails come from around the world, and it makes each person a contributor to the success of the Farmers’ Almanac. It’s a reminder that Sandi and I sincerely appreciate all of the correspondence, all of the suggestions, and consider you to be among our staff.
If you ever have materials to mail, our address is P.O. Box 1609, Lewiston, ME 04274. Or, if you prefer, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
