NH Farm Network Open Forum

Online Only

This is the first meeting of the NH Farm Network, a collaboration of agriculture service providers who work to support and provide resources to NH Farms and aspiring farmers. The network does this by being informed of our partners’ work, by developing and deepening our relationships across sectors, and by providing a single platform (a website) where new and continuing farmers can learn about our services.

The network will meet quarterly, in a similar fashion to the Open Forums held during the pandemic. Meetings will take place online and give anyone who wishes to share updates space to do so. They will also include presentations from various stakeholders with several of the presentations specifically designed to increase the network’s Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice knowledge. Farmers are also welcome and invited to attend.

The first half of the one-hour meeting will serve as an introduction to the goals of the network and each other. The second half will be a presentation from UNH Cooperative Extension on the Farmer and Rancher Stress Assistance Network—a program available to all farmers and farm workers in NH.

If you represent an agency or institution that works with New Hampshire farmers and are interested in being a part of the NH Farm Network, please contact Olivia Saunders at Olivia.Saunders@unh.edu or 603-447-3834.
