Lisa Richards, Mack Hill Farm, Marlow, NH

By Helen Brody (January 25, 2009)

lisamaccowLisa left a successful 20 year career in high tech sales and marketing to farm Mack Hill Farm with her husband Frank. During the week she is on her own to care for all the animals, tend the gardens, put up food for the winter, spin her sheep’s wool, make cheese, and bake bread. There has been a learning curve as this tech specialist has had to drive a team of horses and a tractor, herd sheep, give a shot to an ill animal, milk a cow and a ewe and she says “haul lots and lots of water and bring treats but still lay down the law.”

See the farm profiles for a description of her farm.
