About this Event

Brookford Farm is a 613 acre farm located along the Merrimack River in Canterbury, NH. An important part of our mission is to reclaim and return the land and soils to optimum fertility. Through the use of organic methods, including a mixture of animal and green manures, crop rotation, and good ole’ observation, we hope to find the best uses of the land. Cows, pigs, chickens, insects, micro-organisms, vegetables, grasses, and a variety of grains will all intermingle and slowly but surely improve the fertility of the soil. As a result of this variety of life and their intermingling, we will have a variety of by-products to nourish our physical bodies. These products include milk, cheese, beef, pork, sausage, bacon, chicken, eggs, sauerkraut, and 40-50 varieties of fresh and stored vegetables.

Agrarian Trust's mission is to support land access for next generation farmers. Agrarian Trust seeks to innovate ownership of farmland to support sustainable food production, collective ecological stewardship, and agrarian community health. Agrarian Trust advocates for land access, tenure, and equity for the next generation of farmers through community centered, shared stewardship of soils and ecosystems, and opportunities for deep relationships to the land and each other.
