More updates on the Northwood Farmers Market for 2015

Hi Friends,
We've got some big news for you.
We've recently discovered that our Thursday market is competing with a few other local markets in the area.
Because of this, we have decided to change the market day from Thursdays to Tuesdays.
Our first market will be TUESDAY, May 5th.
Please watch this page for more information as the date nears!
Also, if you're a vendor, and would like to participate, please let us know! We'd love to have you!

We're moving come May!

Hey Friends!

Sorry for a little bit of radio silence here on the Northwood Farmers Market page! We've been going through a few changes and we're still working out the details!

For now, we'll update you with what we know!

On Thursday, May 14th, the Northwood Farmers Market will be back for it's 8TH SEASON!

You won't find us on the corner of Rte 4/202 anymore, we've
moved up the road and will be located in the parking lot of Hunky Dunk Farm & Keepin It Local Market! Don't worry, there will be plenty of parking and easy in/out access!

We're looking forward to a other great year, but we need more vendors!

FARMERS! We're talking to you! Fresh produce, eggs, meat, flowers, honey, syrup, we want it all!

We'll also be accepting a limited number of crafters/artisans for this year's market.

New market vendor: Moose Mountain Farm!

Tina Nason has sent us this wonderful description of their farm in Brookfield.  

We are a family owned and operated farm, raising our ten children to appreciate this natural way of life. What began as momma's love for cows and the need to feed our growing family has turned into Moose Mountain Farm. Although we are not certified organic we only use composted manure and Neptune's Harvest Organic Fertilizers, which we are a distributor for as well.
We are currently milking three cows; Jersey/ShorthornX, Purebred Jersey and a Jersey/GuernseyX. These girls give us incredible milk that we use for drinking as well as yogurt, butter, and cheese.
We offer starter plants in the spring and vegetables in season, free range chicken, forest fed pork, pastured turkey,our own ground beef, maple syrup,farm fresh eggs, local honey,all natural care products, and lots of baked goods. Check us out on Facebook at Moose Mountain Farm.
The farm has grown and flourished quickly. We are, at present, caring for a couple hundred laying hens, 165 broiler chickens at different stages, 7 piglets, 25 guinea keets and our newest additions to the farm, 5 ducklings.
We thank the Lord for giving us the vision and strength to live this agrarian lifestyle. We are thankful for the financial support from our customers and encouragement to keep on farming!
We are delighted to welcome them to the Northwood Farmers Market!

The flags and tents announcing we
Have local foods to sell to you
So bring your friends and neighbors, too.
See you at the NFM !

New England Food Policy Report

The new report, New England Food Policy: Building a Sustainable Food System, is a call to action. It provides a critical policy focus to existing work across the region to build a food system in New England that is healthy, economically vibrant, just, environmentally sustainable, and resilient.

Download the report now at http://www.newenglandfoodpolicy.org.

Fortunately, according to the recent 2012 Census of Agriculture, in every New England state the number of farms and the amount of land in farming increased from 2007 to 2012. What’s more, in some of these states, the number of young farmers grew as well. Throughout New England, many new and veteran farmers alike are working to feed our region while responsibly stewarding our land. But they need sound policies that supports their efforts — policies that can allow New England to capitalize on the opportunity to build a sustainable food system.

New Englanders deserve healthy food that supports our communities and environment. You have the power to tell your policymakers what has to change to make that happen.Take the first step today by reading and sharing our new report.
