is a small organic farm with two locations in Peterborough, NH. We lease land from and work in partnership with a co-housing community, Nubanusit Neighborhood and Farm, and a K-8 school, the Well School. We grow over a hundred varieties of vegetables and herbs, along with fruit, flowers, and, in 2013, a few pigs. We distribute what we raise primarily through our CSA program, which, this year, will have about eighty members. Our members include residents of NNF, Well School staff, as well as members of the general public.
Here at Walkabout, we steward over seven acres of farmland, using compost, cover crops, and mineral amendments to build soil fertility. Our agricultural methodology prioritizes soil health because we believe that healthy soil produces healthful, great-tasting food. We also recognize that healthy soils perform important ecological functions. Living soils store carbon, keep our rivers clean, and reduce the need for external inputs, which cost significant amounts of energy to produce and transport. Since about half our country’s land is working land—used for agriculture, forestry, or ranching—farms play a critical role in managing our nation’s landscape. Here at Walkabout Farm, we hope not only to preserve, but to improve, the sour, granitic soils that give us so much each year.

Community supported agriculture [CSA] is a food production and distribution model that directly links farms with people who eat. Members buy a share of the harvest at the beginning of the growing season, and receive a portion of what comes out of the field each week. The upfront investment helps small farms provide their constituents with fresh, healthful food at a fair price. Members often volunteer on the farm, learning about gardening and enjoying the company of their fellow shareholders.
