Tom Giovagnoli is a third generation organic family farmer. His grandfather had a vegetable farm in New Jersey. Tom eventually bought his own farm in Dunbarton, NH where he and his three sons raised cattle and a few hogs. But he still had to make ends meet, so he took a stressful part time job as a mechanic.
Tom has a passion for farming the right way, and he wanted to do it full-time. So he contacted Pete and Gerry’s about starting a farm in Boscawen, NH. He cleared the land, built his house and a spacious barn for his hens.
“I have always farmed,” Tom states. “It’s in my blood. It’s almost therapeutic for me actually. The hens allow me to farm full-time with my sons. Farming keeps families together.”
“It’s going to be tough for small, family-owned farms in the future–unless we can educate the public about the value of small farms and quality of food they produce.”
