Darling Hill Community Farm is a small diversified vegetable farm in Southern New Hampshire. The farm is viewed as a living organism and this leads to a consideration of inputs and outputs, building fertility through organic, ecological and sustainable practices.
Darling Hill Community Farm conserves and beautifies the working landscape of Brookwood Ecology Center by cultivating the natural resources through agricultural stewardship of the land and place-based livelihood for the farmers. This work is practiced in ways that are: Ecologically Harmonious, Aesthetically Graceful, Technologically Creative, and Energetically Efficient. This work provides a local, sustainable and secure source of food to the Farm Community, and to provide the Farm Community with the opportunity to celebrate and educate themselves in spiritual and practical aspects of place, agriculture and livelihood.

Darling Hill Community Farm occasionally vends at area farmer's markets in Temple and Peterborough.
We are open for cash sales during CSA pick-up times from 3pm to 7pm. Cash customers pay individually for each item as if they were at a farmers market or regular farmstand for our organic produce. We currently do not sell any produce that is produced off-farm.
I have inside information that this farm produced nearly 8,000 pounds of quality, wholesome food one season. Compare that to a VT farm prison of 100 inmates who grew 9,000 pounds of produce in a recent season.... [more]
Two of my neighbors suggested I join this CSA a couple years ago and I am so glad I did. Leigh Mae is so knowledgeable and always takes time to answer my own gardening questions.... [more]

My family chose Darling Hill as our first experience with a CSA and at this point, I'm very happy. I was sorry to look on this site today and see the nature of what so publicly took place, but I feel that the person who is running the farm right now should be judged on the produce that is provided and not the nature of her personal life....
