About Us

D Acres of New Hampshire is an innovative, non-profit organic permaculture farm & educational homestead located on 180 acres of forest, perennial, and annual gardens in the rural foothills of the White Mountains. Our mission is to improve the human relationship with the New England landscape by researching, teaching, and applying skills of sustainability, subsistence living, and small scale agriculture in a cooperative, communal environment. Through local food networks, educational programming, and community and food events, we are working towards the localization of our regional economy so that our needs of food, energy, shelter, community, and health are met within our community.

We are currently seeking prospective applicants for our residential program. Residents are involved in all aspects of daily operations at our working farm and homestead. Focus areas include organic gardening, sustainable forestry, animal husbandry, woodworking, blacksmithing, herbology, metal fabrication, grant writing, alternative building and earthen construction, culinary arts and food preservation, renewable energy, hospitality and hostel management, youth education, graphic design, and videography. Projects and operations are decided in weekly group meetings using consensus-based format.

The work format format allows for concentrated and organized communal work, while the free remaining time is at your disposal for personal projects, exploring our beautiful forested property and trail system, reading, hiking, biking, swimming, rock climbing at the nearby Rumney Rocks, or snowshoeing and cross-country skiing during the winter.
