Local Farms in Action

You don’t have to cook fancy or complicated masterpieces – just good food from fresh ingredients. ~ Julia Child


About this time of year New Hampshire’s farm stands begin filling up with great local produce. Supporting our local farms isn’t just great for our economy, it’s great for our health, too. So, head out and get your hands on some delicious fresh produce, plants and many other local products.

We have lots of great farms right here in the Lakes Region, so you won’t have to drive far:

And if you’re not sure what to do with what you take home, the Library has some fantastic cookbooks to help you out. Dozens in OUR COLLECTION, of course, but we still have plenty left from our cookbook sale. Eating your veggies was never so easy or tasty.
