The land

Based in Londonderry, New Hampshire our half acre plot is the main production site for Horne Family Farms. It is managed using all organic practices that focus on good weed management without the use of herbicides, low till and no till methods to maintain great soil health, and lots of cover crops to add nutrients and fertility back into the soil. Our plot grows a diversity of leafy greens and vegetables.
