Built in 2012, the 3,960-square-foot Farm at Eastman’s Corner is a year-round farm and farm market that specializes in the production and sale of local, fresh produce and artisan products. In addition to the production of tomatoes, greens, and other seasonal produce, The Farm sources produce, meats, and specialty products from more than 100 local farms and vendors, many within 10 miles of the store.
The Farm is also a model for sustainability. The total photovoltaic energy produced by the property’s impressive 22-panel solar array is more than 118,000 kWh annually, providing an estimated cost savings of $18,000 each year.
The 5,040-square-foot Kensington Food Barn, across the street from the Farm Market, is the location of Karimah’s Kitchen — the Farm’s main production and catering kitchen. A restored 1800s barn, the Kensington Food Barn features the barn’s original timber frames while housing two state-of-the-art commercial kitchen spaces.
The eight-acre site also features 11 high-tunnel greenhouses for vegetable production, and the Animal Yard at Eastman’s Corner, housing 12 Nigerian dwarf goats, two Vietnamese pot-bellied pigs, and Cluckingham Palace, the home of our New Hampshire Red chickens. The Animal Yard barn structure was constructed in 2013-2014 by the building trades students at the Seacoast School of Technology in Exeter, NH.
The Farm at Eastman’s Corner gives 100% of its profits and 5% of every sale to support Kensington’s Sawyer Park, a clean, safe place for children and families. The property is owned and operated by Eastman Corner Foundation.
