Farmers’ Almanac Maker to Lay Off 75 as it Moves Printing from Lewiston

Geiger, the producer of the Farmers’ Almanac, as well as pocket diaries and calendars, is divesting itself of its printing and manufacturing business after 135 years. The company’s decision, one influenced by changes in peoples’ behavior wrought by technology, will lead to 75 people losing their jobs, Peter Geiger, the company’s executive vice president and editor of the Farmers’ Almanac, told the Bangor Daily News on Tuesday evening.
