Thank you to every one who came to visit us and enjoyed the time at the Derry Farmer and Artisan Market in downtown Derry! We had a blast talking to everyone, and getting the word out about our new farm in Sandown, NH. Just for those who aren’t aware of the Derry Market it is located in downtown across from Sabatino’s, in the courtyard by Benson lumber, every Wednesday 3 p.m to 7 p.m.

We at Go-Fer Farms could not have imagined a better first market experienced. Every one that visited our tent was welcoming, happy and enthusiastic about our endeavor here at Go-Fer Farms. What was most impactful on us, was on our return to our second week when we had a few people from the past week come and say hi! Thank you! For us, that is our goal, to connect and to have a conversation about food (and we apologize for not having any spinach…)! Of course farming is our passion here at Go-Fer Farms but having new people walk into our lives and support us from every angle is definitely a main driver here at the farm.

What was on the menu? That is a valid question you should ask. We are harvesting herbs now! We brought pre-bagged herbs such as  spear mint, parsley, thyme, oregano, sweet basil, and sage to the last two markets.

For produce we had red and white globes of radish (along with the radish greens separated), chives, radish greens, baby kale, arugula and a loose leaf romaine mix.

All the vegetables were picked in the morning and washed for market. We do not freeze or store our produce for long periods of time because they will ultimately loose their nutritional value and flavor that way. We take our time to get these veggies prepped the proper way and packaged so that their is minimal spoilage as well as a guarantee that they will be as fresh as possible for those who comes by to purchase them!

We sold out of radish and our lettuce mix, but we do have more in store, so come on down to our tent at the Derry Market and meet us! There will be an update page in the news column to keep a fresh update on what produce or products are coming out in the coming weeks!

Thank you to our fellow Go-Fer’s to the community of the Derry Homegrown Farmer’s & Artisan Market. Without all of you, Go-Fer Farms would not be possible, we look forward to growing with you.

Sincerely,

-The Go-Fer’s

 

With a lot of help and support from all of our fellow Go-Fer’s we were able to establish ourselves as a farm in Southern NH! We are planning to proudly serve the local communities of Rockingham County, as well as the Merrimack Valley Area down into Haverhill, MA and further if needed!

Our mission is simple: Go-Fer Farms LP is dedicated to getting fresh, healthy and local vegetables to those within the community, one Go-Fer at a time!

The goal is to grow with the community that is already established. Locally sourced vegetables is something that lacks in our area in Southern, NH and Go-Fer Farms is dedicated to connecting with others that have this very same mindset. 

Our Crate Program is sure to connect us, as well as the farmer’s markets that surround us. 

Thanks for your interest and support, either word of mouth or direct influence. We appreciate it and enjoy the energy that this farm has brought into our lives.

Sincerely,

-Kate Miller and James Emery
