On a beautiful Saturday morning, we took a short trip to the Farm at Eastman’s Corner in Kensington, NH.
It is a community managed farm and marketplace supporting local farmers while also providing a gathering place for free events, cooking and nutrition classes, and children’s programs.
The Market is stocked with fresh vegetables, fruit, cheese, milk, eggs, bread and desserts.
Outside you see a beautiful barn where you can find chickens, goats, pigs, a field of solar panels, and an automobile charging station. On the right side of the barn, you can admire a large mural done in 2016 by students at the local Kensington Grade School.
The Farm at Eastman’s Corner donates 100% of their profits and 5% of their sales to support another community attraction – Sawyer Park. Athletic fields and courts along with a playground, band stand and pavilion can be found at Sawyer Park.
Out front, “Black Hawk” stands proudly. This life-size sculpture of a draft horse was created by artist John Lopez and pays tribute to the spirit of all those who work the soil and bring in the harvest. If you haven’t had a wow moment today, check out Mr. Lopez’s website because my mere camera cannot do his talent justice.
The Farm is a wonderful community driven location to stop, look around, purchase something for a lunch, or to gather ingredients for a meal at home. Eat local – it tastes better and is a lot more fun. 🙂
