The Farm Share Program connects low-income NH individuals, families, and seniors with certified organic NOFA-NH member farms to provide them with reduced cost community supported agriculture (CSA) shares consisting of a season's worth of local, fresh farm products. Since 2017, 16 partner farms have provided discounted CSA shares to 500+ low-income NH residents.

CRAFT stands for Collaborative Regional Alliances for Farmer Training. It is a national program focused on training for farmers, farm workers, interns and apprentices. CRAFT expands training beyond the individual farm by bringing farmers, farm workers, gardeners, homesteaders, students and consumers together at educational on-farm workshops to meet colleagues and learn new skills.

In the spring of 2020, NOFA-NH partnered with the NH Food Bank, NH Farm Bureau, and NH Food Alliance to create a program providing locally grown food to those in need. This program connects food pantries with local farmers in their area to create partnerships and provide them with the funding to purchase more produce, fruit, dairy protein and more.
