A Guide to New Hampshire Farmstands
Where and how to shop the state's healthiest harvests
Fresh, local, lovingly produced: These terms associated with healthy food also characterize the bounty of the local farmstand. Along with a variety of apples for your one-a-day-keeps-the-doctor-away regimen, Lull Farm in Hollis has it all at harvest time — fields of ripening pumpkins and a farm store that is more like an artisan food market than a farmstand.
Despite the recent changes from COVID-19, you can still fill out an order form online to stock up on made-in-the-kitchen specialties like homemade soups and meals, and bakery favorites that include French baguettes, breakfast pastries and pies to pick up curbside. You can also purchase cheese from the impressive artisanal cheese case, shop for specialty foods including artisan salts, local ice cream and bulk olive oil or grab your own Lull’s own chicken and beef. Fresh fruits and vegetables that are not grown on the farm are supplied by trusted producers. The greens mix with edible flowers is a must. If you just can’t get enough apple in your life, you can also purchase Lull’s applesauce, apple strudel and apple butter. The farm keeps an updated list of what is available in-store, so make sure to check it out before you place your order.
