Pete’s Stand

A multi-generation family owned and operated farm stand with no land security. The farm stand and farmland are located along the state highway through Walpole, NH. Farmland along the state highway is being sold to commercial development with farmland soils removed and impervious surfaces created. Pete’s Stand and the local community were able to conserve some of this farmland and support local food security through protection of important farmland and secure tenure agreement for farming. A partnership with Land for Good, Monadnock Conservancy, Ian McSweeney, 1772 Foundation, and the Thomas Haas Fund at NH Charitable Foundations supported the project.
