Past and present farming experience:

Currently operating our own certified organic farm in Walpole, NH. We produce a wide variety of vegetables, small fruits, and pastured poultry. We sell our product through a CSA, farmers markets, and to restaurants in the area. We cultivate roughly 5 acres of diversified vegetables and 100 blueberry bushes. The farm has been owned and operated by Bruce since 2002. Before that, he managed Hutchins farm in Concord, Massachusetts. Kirsten has been farming for 8 years. She owned and operated her own market garden for 4 years and distributed product through a CSA and farmers markets. Together we make a great team with capacity grow and enhance local food systems.
