Readers who have enjoyed Harrowsmith’s Almanac
in print, will now be able to enjoy the publication on their tablets and smartphones.
Publisher Yolanda Thornton of Moongate Publishing
said the choice to go digital was made in order to broaden the scope of the publications audience. “Historically in the past with Harrowsmith Country Life Magazine (sister publication, no longer published
) the audience was pretty much 35-64 year olds or 35+,” Thornton said. “There’s a huge portion of the younger demographic that are interested in these types of editorials and want to read about organics, DIY, home renovation, energy efficiency and growing your own fruits and vegetables. We wanted to be able to attract and capture a younger demographic.”
