Author, Helen Brody’s 2004 book, “New Hampshire:  From Farm to Kitchen” pulls together a comprehensive look at New Hampshire’s rich store of gastronomic treasures by profiling some of the Granite State’s  important working farms.  Quick and easy recipes, using each farm’s raw ingredients, make the direct and often overlooked connection between the farmer who grows the food and the cook who prepares it.  The book also offers menus for traditional events around the state and a resource section that will allow readers and cooks to locate farms and their products.

Brody’s current project is, a website that expands on her book with additional  profiles of  the state’s  farms. The site also spotlights the important roles women play in the farming community, offers  farm news and activities of  interest to the general consumer. The Commissioner of Agriculture’s  column from the department’s Weekly Market Bulletin is also offered on the site.

In attendance will be the owners of  Longhaul Farm, H.O. Lenentine and Lorri Downs who will speak about farming and their farm.

Located in Holderness, the Longhaul Farm offers a Farm Stand and Café open during the months of June-September, where they sell a variety of locally grown and organic products including meat, cheese, veggies and jams.  The farm also hosts rehearsal dinners, weddings, retreats, reunions, private parties, and workshops at their Pavilion in the Woods.  They can be found online at:

This program is free and includes a light lunch.
