We are announcing that Fresh Start Farms is making its way into the Seacoast!  Isho Mahamed will be selling her fresh and flavorful produce at the Newmarket Farmers’ Market this year.  CSA shares are available for pickup as well (contact to sign up).  Testimonies from Isho’s customers are that the produce is awesome!

Support Isho’s small-farm business Saturdays from 9am-1pm at the Newmarket High School from June 6th to October.  Find a variety of greens, hearty root vegetables, fresh herbs, ripe tomatoes grown in the high-tunnel, and more.  Try something new, such as African eggplant or other specialty crops important to the refugee communities.  Know your farmer and your food.

Please spread the word!


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.
