Tracie’s Community Farm, Fitzwilliam, NH
Tracie’s Community Farm began in 1999 as a small CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm in Sullivan, NH by Tracie Loock (see Tracie’s profile in the farm women’s category).
As with all CSAs, members purchase a share in Tracie’s farm to receive a portion of the harvest each week during the growing season. CSA shares provide “seed” money for the farmer to purchase seeds and supplies and assures a firm customer base for the summer.
In 2007, Tracie’s Community Farm moved to its permanent home in Fitzwilliam, New Hampshire on 33 acres of conservation land.
Family and community helped to move perennials, greenhouses, supplies from Sullivan, and to build a barn from pine harvested and milled on the new site. Today, Tracie’s Community Farm CSA feeds over 300 families in the Monadnock region, and provides produce to a farmstand, area markets and restaurants.
Visit Tracie’s farm and you’ll quickly get a sense of her commitment to sustainable agriculture: from the row covers used to prevent pest damage to the cover crops planted to increase soil health — practices she learned while studying Environmental Horticulture at the University of New Hampshire and refined since starting her farm. A crew of 6 full-time farm workers grow a variety of vegetables, fruits, and herbs without pesticides or chemicals.
The Community Farm spring sales season begins with plant and herb starts in mid-March. In mid-June, the Summer CSA season goes into full swing and last through October. A Fall CSA starts in October. The vegetables and cut herbs are picked and washed at their peak flavor and packed into baskets with a weekly newsletter. Information and sign-up can be done on her website.
The farm also has storage vegetables and greens growing in the greenhouse as well as other local goods available like honey, maple products, jams, and baked goods.
