NH Agriculture in the Classroom Suggests Fall Farm Visits

By Helen Brody (August 30, 2012)

From New Hampshire Ag in the Classroom

A new school year has begun and with it comes the opportunity to help educate students and teachers about the diversity of New Hampshire’s agriculture. New Hampshire Agriculture in the Classroom highlights four different types of agricultural enterprises around the state. These farms are not the only ones worth visiting. The suggestions are only intended  to make teachers and students aware of the different types of farms that are in New Hampshire. Even if the students can only visit a web site or become a pen pal with the farm, they will learn something.

First stop this fall is the Bo-Riggs Cattle Company (www.bo-riggscattle.com) in Westmoreland, NH.  This is a Black Angus 3rd generation family farm. They are very school friendly and do have a Farm Pen Pal program.

How about visiting a buffalo farm? Found in Warner, NH,  the Yankee Farmer’s Market (www.yankeefarmersmarket.com) is owned by Keira and Brian Farmer. Their website can be used to talk about health and nutrition, sustainability, and diversity.

Local, fresh, wholesome, and family. All these words can be used to describe Winsome Farm Organics (www.winsomefarmorganics.com) in Piermont, NH. This family has been farming for generations and as  with most farms in New Hampshire, diversity is the word to describe their farming activities. They are very visitor friendly and educational and fun to visit.

What would Fall be without a visit to an apple orchard? Consider Mack’s Apples (www.macksapples.com) in Londonderry, NH. Mack’s claim to fame is that they are New Hampshire’s oldest family-run apple farm. This farm was in operation before the Declaration of Independence in 1776. Visit their web site and you’ll get a history, economics, health, and nutrition lesson all in one stop.
