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.
