The new Grafton County Farm Committee has held its first meeting as part of an effort to develop a mission for the county farm, which some members believe should focus less on productivity and more on being a tool for education to make the farm sustainable into the future. To that end, the committee and county commission are looking to reduce the dairy herd to reduce expenses, partner more with the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension, and bring back local 4-H students. Once a mission is developed, the goal is to bring on a permanent farm manager by early next year and possibly have some concrete plans to implement for the 2023 growing season.
