New Hampshire Canaan
In 2003, wanting to blend their off the farm working lives and hobbies with a goal of food self sufficiency, Spencer and Sabrina Powers began life together on a 3 ½ acre property in Canaan, New Hampshire. In 2010 they named the farm after watching a black bear visit their bird feeders. They began by planting a large vegetable garden, then came adding fruit trees and berry bushes. Raising a few chickens for eggs and meat seemed the next logical step to food self sufficiency.
