Weather Sticks: The Perfect Gift That Stand the Test of Time

There is an exclusive product made in Maine that we have been talking about for over 30 years — our famous Maine Woodsman’s Weather Stick. Made from balsam fir trees, it works by mounting the stick outside your home to accurately predict the weather for the day. It points up for good weather, and makes a downturn swing for inclement weather.


This weather stick is 24 year’s old!

We ran a story online about how weather sticks work, and started offering it in the Farmers’ Almanac online store. Our customers love it!

We quickly heard from people that they work great and apparently last forever. A good friend of mine, Larry, who lives in Miami, told me that during Hurricane Andrew (1992), his weather stick pointed down so much  he was afraid it would break. The wind eventually took it, so I replaced it for him in 1992. Larry just sent me a picture of the replacement stick and it is still telling him the weather some 24 years later.

Check out the Maine Woodsman’s Weather Stick in our store. Everyone claims to have the perfect gift; this one really is. It would make a most unique stocking stuffer!

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
