CONCORD, N.H. — For the tenth year in a row, the Merrimack County Conservation District has created and printed their local food guide for the Merrimack County. This guide lists the dairy, produce, and specialty food farms in the county, teaching visitors and locals alike the easy availability of our county’s local bounty.
Merrimack County is lucky to have such a diverse agricultural community, from farmers selling vegetables and fresh eggs at farm stands, to larger productions that supply products like fermented vegetables, leg of lamb or 100% grass-fed beef to local stores, restaurants and farmers markets.
The town-by-town list will help you easily locate a farm in your area while our list of local farmers markets will help you build connections with many local farms and producers. Our short articles throughout the guide will give you extra insight into a number of local farms and establishments that exemplify the goals of this guide: to educate and provide access to local farms.
When you buy local food, you aren’t just making a simple purchase. You are supporting a way of life that embraces a stronger environment for future generations. You are helping your local economy and helping family farms to thrive.
