Abenaki Springs Farm was started in 1997 on a rich plain in Walpole, NH. The farm has been certified organic since 1999. In 2004, Bruce Bickford entered into a lease/purchase agreement with the previous owner and started building ASF up into a diversified, locally supported enterprise.
Since then, Bruce has increased the farm’s productive acreage from the original 3 acres to 11 acres, and has secured organic certification on all 11 acres. He has added four greenhouses to ensure production through 3 seasons, and installed a farm-wide irrigation system. This irrigation will ensure increased and consistent production despite periods of drought like we’ve had the last few summers.
