The mission of the NHFMA is to educate the general public on the benefits of a healthy lifestyle acquired through locally grown agricultural products. We are dedicated to helping consumers understand the economic, social and ecological benefits of this lifestyle for themselves as well as for local farmers, growers and producers. The association seeks to educate local producers on best management practices and common operating procedures through a variety of means including workshops, seminars and multi-media.
The NHFMA will work to provide the educational assistance, support and training that local producers need to provide healthy food in an ecologically sound manner. Through education and member participation, the NHFMA strengthens New Hampshire agriculture.
