Hot off the press – NH Farm To School Report

New Hampshire Farm to School LogoHere is the NH Farm to School Report examining farm to school purchasing over the last three years in NH. It highlights both barriers and successes, and the undeniable rise in direct and distributed local farm-to-school purchasing!

Monadnock Menus goes live!


An enormous amount of vision, planning and collaboration over a couple of years have brought us to this point – Monadnock Menus makes its first delivery this Wednesday, October 3rd!

The ordering site for institutional buyers is:

Of course, each producer will have different items to offer at various times throughout the season and we are not too far off from the end of the New England harvest season for this year. However, products like Elm City Bagels, Echo Farm Puddings, Orchard Hill Breadwork and Commonwealth Dairy Yogurt will enable us to work out any logistical issues that arise over the winter months. And the produce farms are already able to plan their planting and harvest for next season with this added demand in mind so we can scale up in the spring.
