The Farm By The River 


Update!! January 2015:
Our dear friend Joanne is moving to the farm to begin her own vegetable operation named Mountain Heartbeet LLC. She will continue to run the CSA and is looking to expand so please tell your friends!  
Please contact her directly if you are interested in a CSA share this year. Please visit her website - or send her an email -
We are so excited to have this new collaboration at the Farm!!  

CSA stands for, "Community Supported Agriculture". We offer individual shares to local residents of Effingham and Freedom, New Hampshire who are willing to pre-pay their shares in anticipation of the season to come.  In this arrangement, farmer and consumer share the risks that historically have plagued farmers resulting in unanticipated losses due to weather and insect damage.

Each share  ($225 pp) represents a minimum of 15 weeks of produce, including vegetables and cut flowers, grown at our farm throughout the season. 
In 2013, we have added a high tunnel to extend the growing season in central New Hampshire into winter months and then restarting in early spring. CSA members will have the ability to purchase extended season greens and other vegetables grown in the high tunnel beyond the "typical" growing season.

We also grow red and black raspberries. CSA members get one pint per week during the summer and fall raspberry production season.   PYO is available to CSA members and the public.
All produce sold at The Farm By The River is grown on our farm utilizing organic practices.  We do not use pesticides or fertilizers except for those certified by the National Organic Farmers Association (NOFA).

CSA members may pick up their weekly share of produce on Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings.  Other times are by appointment as needed.  We supply reusable bags and allow members to choose their produce from an array of what is available at the time. Produce is displayed in our barn, market style.

We also raise pasture chicken, pork, and lamb and provide limited orders to our CSA members and other customers by request.
