Granite Ledge Farm

Here is what Scott Drummey has to say about his new venture. "  
Granite Ledge Farm is a diversified, permaculture based, farm business that opened in 2017. We are a new farm business on a Revolutionary War-era homestead in New Durham. Once our trees are mature, we will sell many different varieties of fruit, perennial vegetables, herbs, and nuts to consumers and restaurants in the Seacoast, NH area. This is our first year selling any product, and we are excited to be at the Rochester Farmers Market.
This year, we will be selling several varieties of perennial seedling herbs in pots, and several perennial vegetables such as asparagus and horseradish. Assuming Mother Nature cooperated, we will be selling peaches, apples, pears, and several types of berries throughout the season. We will also be selling several varieties of grafted fruit trees in September for Fall planting.

​​Our Farm

Our Farm, owned and operated by Laura Young and Aron Gonsalves, was established in 2013 in Springvale, Maine.  The couple moved to Maine after spending their twenties on the sunny island of Oahu, where they first focused on their culinary careers, then opened a garden supply store primarily based on hydroponics and aquaponics.  The two learned about small – scale urban farming and worked with the Department of Education to establish gardens for local schools.  Nearly 10 years later, they were ready to take on the challenge of a homestead.  Their search for land brought them to Maine
Determined that cooperative farming was to be their mission, ‘Our Farm’ was simply named to pay respect and give thanks to all those who have made and will make it a success.
Laura and Aron settled on the old 40+ acre farm, formerly known as Shaw’s Dairy.  The existing structures have allowed them to raise a variety of livestock.  Chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and pigs are bred and raised for egg and meat production.  The 20 acre hay field also feeds the herd of beef cattle.  The fertile land on Hanson Ridge has given rise to the bountiful, organically grown vegetables, herbs and flowers that are produced from March through November.  
Crops like tomatoes, squashes, cabbages and peppers start as seedlings in the little hoop house before being transplanted into the garden.  Others, like carrots, cucumbers, radishes and beets are sewn directly into the soil which has been fortified with compost produced right on the farm.  The local mushroom farm, Mousam Valley Mushrooms, where Aron is the Director of Operations, provides straw, an excellent source of organic matter, and is used to mulch the gardens at Our Farm.  Their products are also available at the roadside farm stand and by special order. Look for baked and canned goods coming out of the kitchen and don’t hesitate to ask for cooking tips from the chefs.

Zane Tillinghast Pottery

  
BIO 
Zane Tillinghast acquired his BFA in ceramics from the Maine College of Art in 2016. He creates functional work with red earthenware clay. The charm found in irregularity inspires his forms. Slip, red clay, and the interaction between glazes is key to the decorative aspects of each pot. His pots are meant to be accessible and used daily.
Zane was born in southern New Hampshire, his pottery can be found for sale in Maine and New Hampshire.

ARTIST STATEMENT
My way of approaching the process of making pots is focused on the connections ceramics creates between people. We subconsciously use utilitarian objects to share significant moments, have conversations, and create memories. My pottery is alluring yet humble, focusing on intimate moments through the concept of beauty in function. My work channels the social conditions which ceramic vessels facilitate in helping people to come together--as a tool for conversation and expanding relationships with other human beings. The abstract designs on the surface of my pots are inspired by the time I’ve spent in the New England woods and are meant to serve as a catalyst for ambiguous observations to be made. The act of eating and drinking with this tableware and with the people you wish to spend time, make the ceramic objects a backdrop for the performance of life to happen around.
