Member Benefits

Small & Beginner Farmers of New Hampshire Share…

Assistance

Small and Beginner Farmers of New
Hampshire is a unique statewide
network of people who farm or are
thinking about doing so. Members share
resources, labor, advice and social support. They
gather in monthly county meetings where members
organize money-saving bulk buys on seeds, poultry
and equipment and experienced farmers help
novices learn essential skills. SBFNH members
have arranged discounts at grain stores and a
lumber mill, donated labor and equipment in the
wake of a member family’s devastating fire and
worked together to make and sell hay for members
at below-market price.
