Seacoast Harvest Returns!

The 2009 Seacoast Harvest is now available and ready to help you find local sources of your favorite foods.

Copies of Seacoast Harvest can be picked up for free at the Portsmouth, Durham, Newmarket, Exeter, and York farmers’ markets.  You can also find them at farms such as Riverslea Farm in Epping, Barker’s Farm in Stratham, and Brookford Farm in Rollinsford.  We are currently working on getting copies out to farm stands, markets, and events throughout Rockingham, Strafford, and York Counties, so be on the lookout for it.

This year’s Seacoast Harvest is 24 full-color pages of information about many of the farms, farm stands, and farmers’ markets in our region, including products available and where they can be purchased.  Information is provided for over 140 farms and two dozen farmers’ markets. It also includes seasonal availability charts for local produce and New England seafood, a farming practices glossary, and a quick reference guide to help consumers find what they’re looking for.

Seacoast Harvest is the local food guide for York, Strafford, and Rockingham Counties and is updated annually to ensure that it is an effective resource for consumers and farmers.  It is a collaborative project of Seacoast Eat Local and Slow Food Seacoast and is accomplished through the hard work of their volunteers as well as the generous contributions of both business and nonprofit sponsors and individual donors.

Seacoast Harvest‘s launch will be held in conjunction with  Slow Food Seacoast’s Down on the Farm Picnic on July 12, 2009 from 11am-3pm at Osprey Cove Farm in Madbury.

Be sure to visit to for more useful information as well as a searchable database of local farms.
