Introduction When my husband, Jim, and I moved from southern NH to northern NH (like really way "up nawth") in the summer of 2000 we thought we were just "getting away from it all". Little did we realize we would become farmers! (Although I did grow up on a farm.) It all started with trying to manage the land. Here in the north country we grow good trees - lots of them. We couldn't keep ahead of it and were quickly losing our view. Thus was born the idea of having animals manage the land for us. We got a few sheep and pigs, added some goats, chickens for fly control, a dog to guard them - well you get the picture. Pretty soon folks began asking if we could raise a pig for them, or if they could buy some lamb, eggs or goat milk. So here we are - farmers! And lovin' every minute of it.
