Vermont Weather Stick

  • A great way to teach kids about weather science
  • Made in Vermont of balsam fir

Here's a fun, low-tech way to predict the weather. It seems too simple to be true, but our old-time, balsam wood Weather Stick is actually a remarkably effective natural barometer. It responds to subtle atmospheric changes by bending upward in fair weather, and down when inclement weather is near.

  • Natural balsam fir wood
  • Approx 15" L

      Just love the weather sticks but this one doesn't work as well as my first one. People are just amazed by the willow stick and how it works

          I ordered five of these and one was so thin I thought it would break before it ever was used. They were all different sizes and thrown in a box. I have previously ordered weather sticks from another company and they were individually packaged, and more uniformly sized.

                      This weather stick is a great novelty, and it works.
                      No electricity needed, just nail to a wall and watch the stick bend up to the sky or down to the ground.
                      It is amazing.

                        Makes for a great gift. Gave this as a gift to my dad and then a few years later to my husband who is always asking about the weather.

                          We had a weather stick for many years and it worked very well. However, during our move it snapped in half and we couldn't use it. We were thrilled to know that Gardeners Supply carried them! This is an unusual item for a very reasonable cost that at a quick glance can tell you whether or not fair weather is ahead. We purchased one for ourselves and two more for gifts. The only thing I would recommend is to place it outside in an area where it wouldn't be accidentally snapped off by a passerby but easily seen at a glance from indoors.

                          My Farmer's Weatherstick" provides fuel for lots of good conversation. As a child, my Daddy would awaken me with his own observations of the weather - sun is shining and it is 2 below zero. I could look at the quarter inch of beautiful frost on the window panes and know it was cold! Lots more fun to check the weather stick and see that it is truly going to be a glorious day!

                                We have had one for a year now and love it. When Christmas rolled around this year and I saw the weather stick in the catalog , I thought it would be a great gift for teachers and my nephew. They seem to be very happy with theirs.
