Fresh Start Farms in the Community

Hello Locavores!

We were on the news this month! Our kale was recently featured on a segment of Cooks Corner. The Manchester Food Coop showed off our prime produce with a Kale Chip recipe which can be seen here. This chip recipe is a keeper!

And earlier this year, our Farm Production Specialist, Anthony, attended the NOFA NH 2013 Winter Conference. They interviewed some of the attendees and put out a video postcard last week. The interviewer asked “What is your favorite vegetable – on a personal level?” – can it get much more personal for a farmer? Probably not. Check it out here.

Also, ORIS is co-hosting a Interpreting workshop with NIFI in Manchester on August 16th and 17th. For more information and an attendance application, download This Link.


And best news for last, our fall season is fast approaching so be sure to sign up for your share!

Thank you!


About Fresh Start Farms NH

Fresh Start Farms is a collective of refugee and immigrant farmers who are participating in the New American Sustainable Agriculture Program. Our New American farmer entrepreneurs represent the Somali-Bantu, Bhutanese and Congolese communities, as well as other ethnic groups. These growers sell produce wholesale to restaurants, colleges and other organizations and businesses, at farmers’ markets and farm stands, and through a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program (with pick up sites in the Greater Manchester and Greater Seacoast). Produce is grown with soil health, environmental well being, and consumer happiness in mind. Fresh Start Farms, located in Dunbarton & Bedford, New Hampshire, is a spray-free farm in which farmers use integrated pest management practices with culturally appropriate growing techniques. Fresh Start Farms is a project of the non-profit Organization for Refugee and Immigrant Success (ORIS), located in Manchester, New Hampshire. 100% of the profits from the farm go back to the New American farm entrepreneurs.
