Know Your Farmers: Bear Knoll Farm, Canaan

Bear Knoll Farm has 350 Golden Comet laying hens, a hybrid between a White Rock female and a New Hampshire male, which they maintain as free range birds. Food, water, shelter, and access to the outdoors are always available. They are raised without antibiotics or hormones and fed locally produced grain along with organically grown vegetables from their garden.

From Farm to Kitchen: 
Superbowl Gouda Cheese Ball
Although the Superbowl has come and gone, this still remains a great local addition to any party. You can use Taylor Brothers Mill Hollow Gouda from Plainfield, NH.

Superbowl Gouda Cheese Ball

Tending a Lighthouse,
a Farm or a Yogurt Company
By Lorraine Merrill, Commissioner,
From the Weekly Market Bulletin
Marriage to Stonyfield co-founder and CE-Yo Gary Hirshberg is not so different perhaps, from being married to a dedicated and work-focused lighthouse keeper. Meg Hirshberg writes of the trials of being married to a driven entrepreneur-from their early, struggling years in a rambling, drafty farmhouse at the original Stonyfield Farm, to the more recent period of rapid growth and success.
