Agriculture is our wisest pursuit, because it will in the end contribute the most to real wealth, good morals and happiness.
— Theodore Roosevelt

Where would we be without our local farms and farmers?  

  •  The average farm provides food for 155 families. We buy local, we support their families as they support ours 
  • Farms preserve open space and our rich agricultural heritage
  • Local farms provide nutrient dense fruits and vegetables; reducing consumption of processed foods
 
 

NH farming faces numerous challenges. Here are a few:

1. How to make a living! Most farmers need supplemental income to meet cost of living demands.

2. Beginning farmers who want to farm can't afford to purchase expensive NE land.

3. Many NH farmers will want to retire in the next 10 years. What will happen to their land? How can we help to keep land in farming; preserving open space and assuring future generations access to healthy, locally-produced local food?
