Welcome to Village Roots
Village Roots is a small, diversified farm on the Orchard Hill Community in East Alstead, NH that uses a holistic approach to food production. We use intensive integration of plant, animal and fungal systems to produce high quality food, while striving always to build fertility.
A permaculture design approach has allowed us to work with, rather than against the land that we steward. It is our goal to use and share this approach as a means by which to rekindle the rich legacy of food production in our region. By building diverse and interdependent farm ecosystems, with humans as keystone species, we can heal land, build soil, sequester carbon and secure our local food network.
As producers, we specialize in pasture-raised meats, extended season vegetables, herbs and fruits. We are experimenting with more perennials, and hope to offer more pick-your-own fruit in the future as well as nuts and nursery trees.
In addition, Village Roots grows, designs and implements systems that include renewing fertility, perennial food production and natural building as fundamental components needed to establish regenerative human habitat.
