New resource from NOFA-NH

The New Hampshire branch of the Northeast Organic Farming Association has unveiled a new resource, available in print and on the web.

The web version is here. An interesting point to note is that they’ve chosen to include not only certified organic growers but also growers who say they follow the practices and tenets of organic growing but choose not to certify. In other words: buyer beware – not everyone listed here is organic.  Fortunately, when you are buying locally you can have the sort of in depth conversation about these gray areas, visit farms, lend a hand, and really get to know what is going on.

You can get a print version of the brochure/map by calling NOFA-NH at 603.224.5022 or emailing info@nofanh.org

    Thanks for including that “Buyer Beware” warning Sara Zoe. A good thing for folks looking for organic food to remember about this publication is that not all organic farms in NH are listed. Many chose not to pay the fee involved to be included and some certified organic growers felt the publication can be misleading as to who is/isn’t organic. For a list of certified organic growers in NH, visit http://agriculture.nh.gov/divisions/markets/documents/2006OrganicProducerWebVersion1.pdf
    To further muddy the waters, you can also check the mofga site since some NH farmers choose to certify through them instead of NHDAMF

  2. [...] NOFA-NH has a cool Google Map of organic farms. [...]

    @ renee –
    vveeeeerrrryyy interesting. The first thing I did after looking at it was send off an email saying, hey! you forgot New Roots Farm! – it never occurred to me that they were *charging* for inclusion – that should have been made more than obvious. Wasn’t mentioned anywhere that I could see.
