Meet Eric and Mary Skovsted. Eric and Mary met at college in a creative writing class. Eric wrote about his boots: Mary wrote about her mother’s button jar. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight, but it was a good starting point and eventually Mary brought him home for Easter dinner in the northeast kingdom. It didn’t take long for Eric to establish tight bonds with the people and places of Mary’s childhood and before she knew it he was as familiar with the Joe’s Brook fishing spots and swimming holes as she was.

Meadowstone Farm is a small, diverse farm located in Northern New Hampshire which has a long history. Originally homesteaded by the Cole family in the mid-1800’s, it remained in their family as a cow dairy until the early 1960’s. John Cole was well known throughout the area for his horse teams and the work he did with them. Ray Little bought the farm in 1967 and ran it as a dairy until the late 70’s. He then sold the farm to Lyle and Rachel Whitcomb in 1982, who, while running a hardware store, a roofing business and raising four children managed to raise vegetables and keep the farm in working order. They also did Pick-Your-Own peas, eggs, pansies and a few cattle over the years. We bought the farm in 2003 and have continued the tradition of organized chaos and the love of farming. ~ Tim and Jessica Wrennrich

We are a small, off-grid, solar powered homestead farm on Whitehill Road in Barnet, VT. Our family of three owns, works and operates our farm.

Our mission is to grow our food using ecologically sound and sustainable practices. ~ Heidi, Evan, and Huckle Choate
