Help Conserve Barker’s Farm

Help Conserve Barker’s Farm

As a working farm for 101 years, Barker’s Farm has earned its place at the center of the Stratham community. The Barker family wants to ensure that their farm and forests are protected for the next century and beyond, providing fresh food and open space for people to enjoy. We’re now asking for community support to make this possible.

Conserving Barker’s Farm represents an important investment in a robust local food system, open space, wildlife habitat, and an accessible recreational landscape for our region. Donate now.

Fresh local foods

The productive soils and careful stewardship of this farm represent the unending potential to grow fresh fruits and veggies, from strawberries to tomatoes.

Wildlife friendly

Barker’s Farm will link more than 500 acres of protected open space, identified as top-ranked habitat by the NH Wildlife Action Plan.

Economic multiplier

Barker’s Farm employs 20+ people during the peak season, and sells meats, cheeses, eggs, and milk from other New Hampshire farms, magnifying its impact on the local agricultural economy.

Clean drinking water

Nearly 1/3 of Barker’s Farm lies atop a wellhead protection area for two drinking water wells, including one serving the Town of Stratham’s elementary school. Conserving land is an effective long-term tool for keeping water clean.

Public trails

The farm’s woodlands host 1.5 miles of trails that help to connect over 10 miles of trails centered around Stratham Hill Park. These miles of trails are enjoyed year round by thousands for hiking, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and more. And through this partnership, the Barkers have agreed to support continued public access and use of these trails.

By conserving Barker’s Farm, you will help to ensure a future of bountiful fresh veggies, scenic beauty, clean water, and public trails. Please consider a generous contribution today to save this working family farm forever. Donate now.
