Hidden Acres Farm, Newton NH
Featured New Hampshire Farm »

The curve of the road brings you around and to the farm. There the tractors seem artfully situated near the driveway, the light shines through the barn door, the wrap-around porch greets you, and it all says “Welcome to Hidden Acres Farm.” The house, barn, and outer buildings retain the charm of a long-ago era. If the walls could talk, there would be many tales (and tails) of daily life on the farm.

Biscuits are most thought of as a small bread, but the dough can be used as a topping for a stew or as a base for fruit as in strawberry short cake.
