Stop by the Monadnock Food Co-op for a tasting with Brookford Farm!
An important part of the mission of Brookford Farm in Canterbury is to reclaim and return the land and soils to optimum fertility. Through the use of organic methods, including a mixture of animal and green manures, crop rotation, and good ole’ observation, we hope to find the best uses of the land. We will have our ear to the ground and be listening for the response to our actions. Cows, pigs, chickens, insects, micro-organisms, vegetables, grasses, and a variety of grains will all intermingle and slowly but surely improve the fertility of the soil. As a result of this variety of life and their intermingling, we will have a variety of by-products to nourish our physical bodies. These products include milk, butter, cheese, beef, sausage, bacon, chicken, eggs, sauerkraut, and 40-50 varieties of fresh and stored vegetables, flour and fresh baked bread.
