WALPOLE, N.H. — The Cheshire County Conservation District (CCCD) is proud to continue to offer its fleet of farm rental equipment to the local farming community for another growing season. The CCCD provides low-cost farm equipment rentals each year in and around Cheshire County; a valuable cost-saving service to local growers. This program supports the CCCD’s mission of improving soil quality and management through the conservation and responsible use of natural and agricultural resources.
The CCCD continues to offer a dynamic fleet of farm equipment and is now accepting reservations for rentals of their: 7ft. No-Till Seeder, Aerway Aerator, Roller Crimper, Woodash/Lime Spreader, Subsoiler, and Penetrometer.
The District is also excited to announce the addition of several new pieces of rental equipment for both large-scale farming operations and small-scale gardeners and homesteaders! New equipment available for rent in 2019 include:
- Walk-Behind BCS Tractor (with a variety of soil health implements)

- No-Till Vegetable Transplanter
Join us for a field demonstration of our new No-Till Vegetable Transplanter on Thursday, June 13th from 10:30am-12:30pm at Picadilly Farm in Winchester, NH. This is an opportunity to learn more about how to use the Transplanter and see if it might be a good fit on your farm. Technical service providers from the Conservation Districts, USDA NRCS, UNH Cooperative Extension, and NCAT will be on hand to answer questions and discuss no-till management for vegetable producers.
