Project Description

Our MISSION at Emery Farm and in our Market & Café is to create a space for the direct harmonious relationship between the community, our local food sources, and this good earth.  

As we designed and are building our new space, it is being done as thoughtfully as possible.  We've utilized as many green and energy efficient options available.  As a hub of the community, we've planned an inviting casual space intended for culinary, wellness, and agricultural enjoyment, education, and pause in this hectic world we share. 

In our Market & Café, we strive to source everything as close to home as possible.  Our recipes and goods come first from what Emery Farm produces on site, then from other collaborating area farms, and specialty food producers and artisans.  We firmly believe in all aspects of sustainability in our own practices and by supporting other local farms and local small businesses as these are vital to strengthening our community and to our future.  We offer our customers choices with incomparable quality and taste, as we conscientiously prepare and sell with fresh, clean, wholesome ingredients in mind.

 

 

Our FUNDRAISING GOALS to get this new space open with a full start of all the additional offerings requires tremendous capital.  Funding will be put toward new equipment, furnishings inside and out, IT - point of sale systems, marketing initiatives - signage, website improvement, including online ordering capability, and pre-opening salaries, inventory, and goods.

REVIEWS

I have been enjoying Emery Farm for over 25 years as my local, neighborhood stop for produce, Christmas trees, berry picking, and petting zoo hang with my Daughter. In recent years Holly has taken over the market & café, and it has taken on a whole other dimension with lunch, baked goods, beverages, more stock in the store and more. I can’t wait to see and experience what the NEW Market & Cafe has to share with our family and the community! We have been patiently waiting while they remodel.     Dave - Durham, NH

 

 

I’ve been a fan and patron of Emery Farm for 20 years, but the recent changes have taken it to a whole new level— it's beyond fabulous while still maintaining its original simple charm.       Karen - Madbury, NH

The Project FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • When is Opening day?
    • We are hoping for mid-July like with any construction project there are elements of the project that can determine when we officially are able to open and are unfortunately out of our control.
  • What will the new Menu for the Café include?
    • We will continue to offer your favorite sandwiches, café drinks, and Annabel's Ice cream, plus many new amazing offerings.  Tune into our social media and our website to get the updates as they come in.
  • How long has Holly owned the Market and Cafe?
    • Holly took over the inside business and built out the Market and Café in 2015.
  • Who does all the farming?
    • The farming and agriculture aspect of the business has been operated by the Towle Brothers for the last 25 years.  While Billy has now retired, you will see Brad out in the fields and taking care of our farm animals occasionally alongside his son, Christian.
  • Who owns Emery Farm to make it the longest running family farm in the nation?
    • The Farm is owned by David Hills and his wife Catherine.  David is the 10th Generation of his family to own and help operate Emery Farm since 1655.
  • Will you still have the Garden Center?
    • Yes! With the construction, we had to put our spring Garden offerings on hold.  Once the construction wraps up we will reassemble our greenhouses and offer some great garden offerings.  
  • Where are all the animals?
    • Our animals have been enjoying the offseason away from the construction zone.  Although they have enjoyed the downtime they are ready to get back in the spotlight and move back into the petting barn. The petting barn will reopen when the Market & Café opens up.
