Stout Oak Farm, Brentwood, NH

Stout Oak Farm is a certified organic, solar-powered vegetable farm in Brentwood, NH, growing five acres of vegetables for a Farm Store, CSA, farmers' markets, and local restaurants. We grow over 40 different vegetable crops, specializing in baby salad greens, microgreens, and also grow organic vegetable seedlings for sale to home gardeners in the spring. We collaborate with other local farms to market and distribute our products through Three River Farmers Alliance. In 2018, we launched a new collaboration with our friends at Clyde Farm, who are raising certified organic pastured poultry and sheep on Stout Oak Farm's land.  

Brookvale Pines Farm LLC, Fremont, NH

My husband Scott, our two son’s Lester and Lance  and myself Brenda, are currently the 4 generation to be working this farm with high hopes that we can make it lucrative enough that our boys will want to continue.  We are extremely diversified, pasture based beef, pork, poultry, dairy and hay that we sell at our full time farm store.   We host food related educational classes in our function room for our local community along with a full schedule of events and horse shows held on the farm.  We also somehow manage to run a few more businesses on the farm as well, Tack Shack LLC a horse blanket cleaning and repair business, and a trucking business LCB Transport Inc.  To say the least we have a lot of balls to keep in the air.
