The mission of the New Hampshire Farms network is to strengthen the connection between New Hampshire farmers, businesses and consumers by developing a greater public understanding of the importance of farming for food security, community health, economic development, and land conservation. The network’s goal is the education of our citizens about the important role that farms play in the preservation of New Hampshire’s financial health and of the rural landscape which draws visitors to travel and enjoy our state.
- To educate the general public about the locations and stories behind the state’s farms and the benefits of supporting them, such as furthering the development of a food self-sufficient local economy, land conservation, and a healthy and flavorful family diet.
- To encourage the public to buy locally produced products before any others and to motivate consumers to visit farms that encourage visitors.
- To encourage public support of businesses that sell and/or use local farm products.
- To grow NewHampshireFarms.net as to further benefit its mission to preserve the state’s farmland, farm history, and local food sources.
At the New Hampshire Farms Network we aim to connect local farmers with customers through our farm directory. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
