Monadnock Menus on the radio!

Alex and Denise Meadows, one of our MM champions from Keene, visited Luca Paris on his radio show last week. We discussed MM, Denise’s amazing MM-inspired recipes, the Keene Housing Buying Club, and rhubarb syrup seltzer water. Listen to the podcast of the show here!

Archway Farm
Archway Farm is a small family farm located in West Keene, right next to Stonewall Farm, and only 3 miles from downtown Keene.

Our focus is exclusively on raising pigs, in an ethical, sustainable, and affordable manner. We are a farrow-to-finish operation selling sausage to wholesale accounts, as well as custom hogs, piglets, and breeding stock.

All our pigs live continuously on pasture with access to shelter as the season dictates. During the warmer months we rotate pastures and plant forage crops so the pigs always have something new to root for.

We feed our pigs GMO free grain grown and milled in Massachusetts, supplemented with fruits & vegetables that the Community Kitchen cannot use and wholesome day-old bread from a local bakery.

Stonewall Farm
Stonewall Farm was established in 1994 as a non-profit farm with an educational mission. The farm operates a certified organic dairy herd of Holsteins and Brown Swiss cows. Our milk has won awards for its consistently high milk quality and is a designated NH Dairy of Distinction. The milk is mostly sold to Organic Valley but we make an artisan raw milk Gouda cheese at the farm as well as plain, vanilla and maple yogurt (whole milk product). We also grow a variety of vegetables, herbs and cut flowers grown in our fields and greenhouses. We have Pick Your Own gardens and this season we will be growing transplants. Special orders can be taken for produce items as well. We also make maple syrup at the farm in our sugar house. The farm is free and open to the farm year round and is also a great venue to host business events, retreats, weddings, family celebrations, trainings and more!
