Welcome to the NH Farm to School Program!
Since 2003, NH Farm to School (NHFTS) has been working to establish farm-to-school connections within communities across the Granite State. Starting as a pilot to introduce local apple products into K-12 schools, NH Farm to School now continues with other procurement efforts, establishing school gardens, helping to coordinate gleaning work, advocating for agriculture and nutrition education, and more!
ABOUT FARM TO SCHOOL

FARM TO SCHOOL POLICY
One of the levers of change for our farm to school work in New Hampshire is through policy. Our network is dedicated to collaborating in support of state and federal polices that further our farm to school work and values.
NH Farm to School hosts two harvest projects to help educators, parents, and communities enjoy farm fresh foods all year round, the NH Harvest of the Month program and the Indigenous Harvest calendar.
FARM TO SCHOOL MONTH
Every October, we celebrate National Farm to School Month. Join us and other schools across the state in recognizing the importance of farm to school through activities, lesson plans, good local food, and fun!
NH Farm to School is located on the traditional lands and waterways of the Abenaki, Penacook and Wabanaki Peoples, past and present. We acknowledge with honor and gratitude the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout generations. Learn more about Indigenous people and heritage in New Hampshire here.
