Because of funding issues and family illness, the board of the New Hampshire Farms Network voted to dissolve its 501 c 3 corporate non-profit status on April 1st, 2017. As a website, NHFN will continue in an abbreviated form. New and pertinent information from farmers and consumers offered through the contact button on the website will be posted on an irregular basis. Priority, as always, will be given to farm history, farm contact information, and photos.
If you are interested in volunteering with Facebook, marketing, or newsletters, please do not hesitate to contact me at email@example.com.
The NHFN objective has always been to create stronger farm businesses by telling their stories and to encourage consumers to purchase food from local farms.
The New Hampshire Farms Network was founded in 2008. As requests for additional farm related information came in, the website expanded beyond the original mission of posting only farm profiles. By 2013, it had become too large and expensive for one person to manage. In 2014 the organization became a 501 c 3 non-profit with a board of directors.
Currently, NHFN has a closing debt of $350. In addition, despite major downsizing, minimal expenses will continue – webmaster, website adjustments and updates, etc.
Please consider hitting the Donate button at NHfarms.net. Any donation you could make would help pay off the debt, preserve the information already on the site, and assure periodic website updates.
Many, many thanks to all who have given time, information, and money in contributing to our goal of connecting farmers and consumers.
