By Horse and by Hand
Hillside Springs Farm in Westmoreland, New Hampshire, is the small, draft horse powered CSA farm of Kim Peavey and Frank Hunter. On three acres they grow over 100 varieties of vegetables, berries, herbs, flowers, and mushrooms. The farm also produces freshly pressed apple cider. They only use sustainable, organic, and biodynamic farming methods, though the farm is not certified.
Every week during harvest season, early June to late November, 50 local families pick up their vegetables and fruits on the farm or at the farmers market in the nearby town of Keene. Kim and Frank like to be transparent about their way of farming: “The ongoing relationship between farmers, CSA members, and the farmland allows us all to understand what's happening on the farm without a third-party certification process. Members have the opportunity to observe, ask questions, and even pitch in!”
