Hurd Farm at Farmers Market Saturday with Grass Fed Meats

Hurd Farm will be joining the Newmarket Farmers' Market this Saturday, June 19th, offering grass fed beef, pork and chicken. The Hurd family has owned and operated their farm since 1923 as a dairy farm on the scenic Taylor River in Hampton.  In 2005 they permanently preserved the farm by placing a conservation easement on the property.

Today Hurd Farm raises all natural grass fed beef and chickens and heritage breed pigs. Their meats and poultry are fed an all-natural diet with no added antibiotics or other additives as growth stimulants. Their animals are provided access to green grass and sunshine on the farm's 160 acres.
Steve and Sheryl Hurd operate the farm.  Steve is the third generation to live and farm here. "We take great pride in our agricultural heritage and are passionate about raising the best locally grown meats available."  Email the farm here or call 944-6869 for more information.
