Know Your Farmers:
Beans & Greens Farm, Gilford

By no means are the Howes the first to till their soil, however. The land on which Beans & Greens sets has been farmed actively since the 1700s by other Yankee farmers, and houses the only remaining barn of the original Ebenezer Smith farm who, with his brother, petitioned to create their town of Gilford. Today, with 370 acres farmed, and with a profound appreciation for its history, the couple has seen to it that conservation easements preserve it for farming and forestry forever.

Help for Farmers Adding Value to Products
By Lorraine Merrill, Commissioner
From the Weekly Market Bulletin
I first met Neelima Gogumalla of Windham at the first-ever Granite State Dairy Promotion Mac & Cheese Bake-Off in 2011, where her two highly original, and delicious entries both won prizes, including ‘Best New Hampshire Made.’ Gogumalla has channeled her food skills and knowledge, and entrepreneurial talents to open a new business – Creative Chef Kitchens in Derry. Creative Chef Kitchens is an inspected commercial, rental kitchen for small and beginning bakers, caterers, sauce-makers and other food processors to get started in business, or prepare foods for special events.
