  1. Rose Wilson is a great resource and we appreciate that she is also working on this side of the river in NH. NH does not have a Farm Viability program, but we at the NH Community Loan Fund are a private non profit and have private funding partners that enable us to offer cost-sharing so that more NH farms can benefit from good business planning. Please contact Charlene Andersen at 603-856-0773.

    What a nicely done video. I didn’t know farmers had resources like that to help them do their business planning better. I love the way they talk about strengths first to open up the communication and give respect to the farmers first. Well done.
