2017 Farm Calendar Pre-Orders

NOTE: Pre-Orders have been closed. Thank you to everyone who ordered a calendar! A few extras will be available in mid-November through my Etsy shop. Please head over there and send me an email if you'd like to be notified when they are posted. Thanks!! (Oct 26)

Pre-Orders are now open for 2017 Farm Calendars! (The button to pre-order is at the bottom of this post).


This year, there will be two options available - Mostly Animals, which features lots of lambs, goats, and chickens, or Mostly Landscapes, with farm vistas from each season. There is no duplication of photos between the calendars.

Here are two photos from Mostly Animals, and you can see the rest in this online album. Each picture will be full size on the calendar page.




I tried to capture the spirit of the seasons on the farm in the Mostly Landscapes version of the calendar. Two of the photos are below and you can see the rest of the months here. Most of these photos are full-page, but a couple looked better in landscape mode and will have thin white bars on the top and bottom of the calendar page.




The 12-month spiral bound wall calendars measure 8x11 inches closed and 11x17 opened and are printed on high-quality card stock. Pre-Orders will be open through Tuesday, October 25, and calendars will be delivered to you by mid-November. The special Pre-Order price is $21. Shipping through USPS is $5 in the United States. International orders will be billed for the additional cost at the time of shipping (typically $3-4 extra for Canada, and $6-7 extra for other countries.)

By placing an order through my website, we avoid many fees, which means I can offer the calendars at a lower price. After October 25 additional calendars may be available at a higher price. Please let me know if you have any questions, or if you'd like to order more than one calendar. I can set up a special invoice for you and combine shipping charges.

Please note: there are no holidays listed in these calendars. This is because I ship some calendars internationally and the thought of managing holidays from all over the world is overwhelming. There will be lots of space on the calendar pages for you to add the holidays that are important to you.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for including a piece of our farm in your life! It is always so exciting to see where little pieces of my world end up going and I am so grateful for your support!
