How long have you been a member of NOFA-NH? 33 years

 

Why did you become a member of NOFA-NH? I love being a part of this group that supports organic food and helps feed the community.

How has NOFA-NH impacted your business? Helps keep me connected with other farmers and consumers.

What’s your number one priority for NOFA-NH this year? Continuing to get good food into the tummies of the most vulnerable people in our state.

 

How could NOFA-NH better help your business grow? I truly believe NOFA’s outreach through the media helps us all.

 

What advice do you have for anyone thinking about becoming a NOFA-NH member? Join! We often work long hours in isolation and don’t see many people except at Farmers’ Markets - connecting with other growers and farmers really helps keep things in perspective- and I love seeing what other farmers are doing and how they’re doing it. You’re never too old to learn new tricks. At 66, I especially love seeing what young farmers are doing and their enthusiasm and vigor.
