Know Your Farmers: Bailey Farm in Lyme
It’s November and a time when packs of coyotes roam the fields at night near where 1,000 Thanksgiving White Holland turkeys are housed on the Bailey Farm in Lyme, NH.”Don’t worry about waking me,” says Dan Bailey who owns the farm with his wife Millie. “I can’t sleep anyway.”After all one coyote, much less a pack, could wipe out the flock that he has been nurturing for six months, feeding his birds an expensive mixture of ground soybean and corn with a few squash added to the yard to peck at.

From Farm to Kitchen: Buttermilk & Cranberry Scones
Dried buttermilk powder made by SaCo of Wisconsin, made from authentic buttermilk, is found in the dried milk aisle of most supermarket shelves. Look for a box the same size as the Arm & Hammer baking soda box with a slightly lighter color. It gives a sweeter taste and more tender crumb than the liquid varieties.

NH Schools Buying More From NH Farms

By Lorraine Merrill, Commissioner, from the Weekly Market Bulletin

More New Hampshire schools are buying more food from local farms. The New Hampshire Farm to School Program reports the number of farmers selling produce and products to schools has tripled to 60 in the past three years. A new survey shows that 60 farms and more than 300 schools are participating in the program which began in 2003 with orchards selling apples to schools.
