In the summer of 2015, Inheritance Farm hosted the 3rd Annual New Hampshire Permaculture Day, an event previously held at D Acres of New Hampshire. This event included tours and forty classes, and the theme was “Emerging Permaculture.” Their classes included how to establish a permaculture farm, how to make rocket mass heaters, how to gather wild edibles, and how to make a bench by hand. They invited guests to share their knowledge about permaculture for some of the classes.

Harding Hill Farm is in a beautiful mountain location on Stagecoach Road in Sunapee, New Hampshire. Founded by Richard H. Webb in 1948, the farm includes a large white farm-house, a red barn with a cupola and solar panels, and spacious fields surrounded by forest. Richard purchased the property with the intent to run a bed and breakfast near the Mt. Sunapee ski area which opened in the same year.

Perched high on Paget Road in Cornish, New Hampshire, is an award-winning farm. Its grassy terraces cling to the steep hillside beneath the monumental shadow of Vermont’s Mount Ascutney. The complex, at first glance, reads as a traditional small New England farm with main house, barnyard, and lush open pastures, but a very modern philosophy powers the life of this 60-acre farmstead.
