Blue Heron Farm was established in the spring of 2017. The farm is settled on 11 acres, perched on top of Saunders Hill in New Boston NH. Blue Heron Farm is a small piece of family land that has been farmed dating back to the 1950’s. Here at the farm we produce 100% grass-fed beef, forest raised pork, soy-free pastured chicken eggs, organically grown seasonal vegetables and many varieties of homemade granola.
Blue Heron Farm is a diversified farm dedicated to preserving and improving the health of our natural landscape. We utilize practices such as, intensive rotational grazing, natural tillage, and organic growing techniques in order to build soil health and sustain the natural landscape. The health and wellness of our livestock and crops is a priority to ensure high quality farm products for our community. We believe that great food comes from hard work, dedication, and a passion for agriculture.
