Wintergreens is a member of the North Country Farmers Co-op, which is a cooperative of farmers that grow and collectively sell to restaurants in the area. Kitty also sells her fruits and vegetables at the Farm Market Place in Colebrook, NH, and at the Root Cellar in Lancaster, NH.
Brookfield Farm is as rich in history as it is in sustaining a rich and fulfilling agricultural way of life for the Gowdy family. “At the end of the day, when all the cows, sheep, the cat, and the dog are here, and everyone is okay, and nothing needs attention— that is my greatest pleasure,” says Holly. “I’m happier than I’ve ever been.”
Her biggest sellers are perennials and veggie starts. They are all non-GMO, and open-pollinated when possible, but Jenny does sell hybrids. She also supplies bedding plants to the City of Keene, so her products can be seen brightening areas within town.
Lancaster Floral Design & Garden Center now comprises a full-service floral shop as well as selling annuals, perennial shrubs and flowers, vegetable seedlings, and seeds, a variety of compost materials, kiln dried firewood, and an array of items from their shop that ranges from pet food and livestock feed to birdseed and fresh eggs and veggies.
Whether they’re laying in Monroe or elsewhere, Pete and Gerry’s hens have access to large open areas outside for much of the day. They are free to peck at bugs hidden in the grass and scratch at the dirt; basically, they’re invited to act like chickens. Pete and Gerry’s technicians visit each of the partner farms weekly to ensure the company’s standards are met and help farmers work through any questions or challenges that arise.
Riley’s Farm is a “no judgment zone,” as the goal is to create and build positive relationships with horses and riders of all levels. Linsay personifies that philosophy as she offers a quick hello to each of her horses who eagerly watch and nicker to her upon her approach, their actions demonstrating the respect and trust each has for the other. So whether you are contemplating sitting in a saddle for the first time ever or want to take the next step to advance your horsemanship skills, be sure to check out what Riley’s Farm can offer you!
Tina and her husband, Erick, established the farm about 30 years ago, with the name originating from a dog kennel that Erick’s father once owned. Little did they know that the purchase of a herd of Angus cattle from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) would provide the foundation for Pinewoods Yankee Farm.
