About Bending Branch Farm:

Bending Branch Farm is owned and operated by Dan Field and Megan Baptiste-Field. Both grew up in the Monadnock Region of southern New Hampshire, Dan and Megan were both raised in families that focused on education and creativity blended with a passion for exploring nature, protecting the environment, and enjoying good food. 

Dan and Megan spent 20+ years engaged ​in creative professions in the worlds of theater, film, television, and themed entertainment. The two moved frequently to follow the work in these fields, which took them all over the country and gave them the opportunity to experience many diverse local environments, cultures, and cuisines.

In 2020 they re-evaluated our priorities, and made the decision to return home to New Hampshire, seeking a new adventure. Their love of the environment, animals, and local food led us to pursue a new path in sustainable agriculture.

In 2021, both started working at Main Street Cheese, LLC, a small goat dairy and creamery located in Hancock, NH. While working there, they fell in love with the process of cheesemaking and caring for the herd of Alpine dairy goats, predominantly descended from the renowned Roeburn line.

At the beginning of 2022, the owner of Main Street Cheese, LLC decided to step back from the farm and cheesemaking side of her business in order to pursue other interests, and she offered Dan and Megan the opportunity to purchase her herd of goats and rent her cheesemaking facility.

Thus, Bending Branch Farm was born!
