Benedikt Dairy is a 100% grass-fed, ecologically minded dairy in Goffstown, NH.
Our purebred Jersey cows live on pasture day and night through the growing season where they eat grasses and herbs. In the winter they are fed dried and fermented grasses, clover, and alfalfa. They never eat grain or other energy concentrates. Rotational grazing improves the biological health of the land and provides the cows with optimal nutrition, so they can produce the most nutritious milk for you.
All of our dairy products are made from the milk of our 100% grass-fed rotationally grazed Jersey cows.
- RAW MILK. Sweet and creamy cream-top milk.
- RAW CREAM. Our cream is exceptionally thick, perfect for making butter and for whipping.
- CREAM-TOP YOGURT. Our cream-top yogurt is made from rich whole milk, not homogenized so the cream naturally rises to the top and contains live active cultures. Pasteurized and cultured.
- GREEK YOGURT. We use the traditional method of hanging our whole milk cream-top yogurt in cloth to produce its luscious consistency. Pasteurized and cultured.
- CHURNED BUTTER. Sea salted or unsalted. Pasteurized and cultured.
- PASTURED BEEF. Our 100% grass-fed ground beef is available most of the time. Different cuts, broth bones, and suet are available on a limited basis. We do not offer quarter, half, or whole animals.
Our farm stand is open to the public 7am to 7pm daily.

Brookfield Farm. The Gowdy
family at Brookfield Farm has been raising Angus cross cattle since
1994. Our beef cattle are finished on our pastures, dry hay, and the
balage that we round bale ourselves. We are certified
have been since 2001. We are convinced that our cattle are happier
and healthier than ever before.
We bought our first cow-calf pairs
on our honeymoon trip along the New Hampshire Sea Coast in 1992, settling
first near Walpole Massachusetts, and then moving to Walpole New Hampshire.
Starting with five angus cows and their heifers we grew our beef herd
to twenty five brood cows. In the last few years we have made some
changes, diversified; we still have about five beef cows, but are milking
twenty Normandy Cross cows, raise some lamb on pasture, and have a
herd of Boer Goats.
We sell our grass fed meats (100% grass fed beef,
lamb, meadow veal, and boer goat meat) by the retail cut, quarter or
side. You can purchase one nice steak or fifty pounds of burger, or
other types and cuts depending on availability. Come visit the farm,
or you can purchase our products at the Walpole
Farmers Market, Fridays
from May – October on
the Walpole, NH Common.
Please give us a call, leave us a message,
or send an email. We look forward to hearing from you.

Clark Organic Farm is located in Carlisle, Massachusetts (near Concord) west of Boston, and are certified organic by Baystate Organic Certifiers. Andrew studied soil science and his wife is a holistic nutritionist. We believe in pasture-based livestock farming and organic methods for vegetables, and also being important contributors to our community.
We run an organic produce CSA. We raise chickens on pasture in mobile houses for eggs, and they are supplemented with a soy-free grain. Our heritage breed pigs run through the woods and are also given some supplemental, soy-free grain. Our sheep and goats graze on grass and are rotated often. We offer our meat through a CSA program. More information can be found on our website.
We also run education programs and special events, and sell our eggs and produce to restaurants and retail locations. Sorry, we do not ship. Non-members are welcome to shop at our farm during CSA hours. Please visit our website for current hours.
* We do give our sheep and goats a HANDFUL of organic, soy-free grain just to coax them out to pasture each day. If we didn’t do this, they would run all over town. Our farm is right in the middle of town, and sometimes the animals get loose and stop traffic. This is purely a functional strategy that is necessary because of our location and the difficulties in hearing our animals.

Haimish Hollow Homestead is a small family farm focused on sustainably raising heritage animals and heirloom fruits and vegetables.
Our heritage breed pigs are pasture raised on a combination of grass pasture and hilly woodland. We use low density practices to care for the land as well as the animals.
Heritage pigs are slow growing, spending their longer lives creating well marbled, deliciously rich meat. We harvest our pigs later in the year, so you get a better product.
We sell pork by the whole, half, and quarter by preorder. Our local USDA inspected abattoir will cut, vacuum pack, and freeze your order. We also have pork by the cut at the farm.
Our natural farming practices ensure that your family, and ours, benefit from the best meat nature has to offer. Though we are not certified organic, we use organic farming methods. Free from antibiotics, growth hormones, and other chemical ickys.
We believe that the best tasting meat comes from the happiest animals. That's why we put such an emphasis on allowing them to live life to the fullest. They spend their days rooting for beech nuts and grubs on the forest floor, napping in a piggy pile, and sunbathing. What the pigs don’t find on pasture we supplement with fermented Maine-grown grain and fresh garden vegetables. We even spend time training the pigs for low stress trailering to the abattoir.
We also raise heritage breed chickens free-range, supplementing what they forage with sprouted or fermented Maine-grown grains as well as mealworms we raise on the farm. Their eggs have the most beautiful deep yellow yolks. We have eggs by the dozen available at the farm. Whole chicken also available.
We offer free delivery on select orders.
Farm visits and on-site pickup by appointment only.

Steve Normanton: I am originally from South
Africa, where I worked in the livestock trade the conventional, agribusiness
in New England, I have raised grass-fed beef for over ten years, with
a focus on sustainability and holistic principles. I now raise pastured pork,
pastured chicken, pastured eggs, and 100% grass-fed beef on
65 acres on the banks of the Merrimack River. My pastures are certified
organic by the State of New Hampshire.
My cattle graze on pasture throughout the
growing season, and I feed them certified organic hay in the winter.
They are never fed corn or other grain, even for “handling” purposes.
I sell beef in
bulk and by the cut. I harvest my cattle when they have reached their
full potential of quality, which means the largest quantities are available
in the fall. Therefore, I recommend pre-ordering for fall delivery.
All my beef is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.
My pigs live and forage outdoors, and I supplement their diet with
organic formulated pig grain. My pork is harvested in the fall,
and is available in bulk and by the cut as long as supplies last. All
my pork is USDA-inspected and flash-frozen.
I raise my meat chickens outdoors on pasture in a day-range system,
which allows them to forage for bugs and living plants. I supplement
their diet with organic formulated chicken grain. I process the birds
on-farm (exempt from USDA inspection) June through October. I sell
fresh or frozen whole chickens (i.e. plucked and cleaned but
not cut up into parts).
My laying hens, like the meat chickens, forage outdoors on pasture
in the growing season, and also get organic formulated layer grain. Eggs are

Walpole Valley Farms is a pasture-based, multi-generational family farm nestled in the fertile Connecticut River Valley of southwest New Hampshire. We raise 100% grass-fed and finished beef and lamb, pasture-raised chickens, heritage turkeys, pigs, eggs, cashmere goats and heirloom vegetables. We also have a bed & breakfast, (The Inn at Valley Farms), where we welcome families to stay and learn about farming.
We use holistic, sustainable farming practices. Our animals are management intensively grazed, meaning they are moved daily to new paddocks with long rest periods for the land. Cattle and sheep only consume grass, hay and minerals that we provide, nothing else. In addition to pasture, we feed our poultry and pigs non-GMO grain from a local family farm.
All our products are sold year-round directly to customers at our farm store Saturdays 10:00am-3:00pm and by appointment. We also have multiple harvest dates when you can pick up fresh pasture-raised chickens and turkeys on the farm.
