New Hampshire ranks third nationally in the percentage of principal farm operators who are women, and these women are transforming what it means both to be a farmer and to run a successful farm. Through informative prose and striking photographs, Helen Brody and Leslie Tuttle show how women in the Granite State are revitalizing farming by creating value-added products and developing new and vital markets for their locally grown food. Such innovations keep farms profitable and relevant, even as they work to protect the open land we all value.
Expanding their roles to include accountant, sales expert, and educator, the state’s women farmers occupy the forefront of national farm-to-community outreach, increasing public awareness of healthy foods and attracting travelers to New Hampshire’s bounty. New Hampshire Women Farmers makes an excellent gift for anyone interested in the new directions that will sustain family farms in the twenty-first century.
Helen Brody is the president and founder of the website New Hampshire Farms Network and the author of New Hampshire: From Farm to Kitchen. Leslie Tuttle is a social documentary photographer who has worked for nongovernmental organizations in developing countries.
