Open For the Season

Life is different now. Until it begins to shift back to normal, we’ve made some changes to help keep our staff, our family and you, our customers, healthy. Please see below for details

Our Hours. Since we will be operating with a smaller staff for the time being, we will be open 10a-6p M-F and 10-5p Sat and Sun. This will allow us time to clean, restock and get our other farm work done so we can continue to bring you the Smith Farm goods you want all season.

By Appointment. Our yard and parking lot are small and to make social distancing possible while you shop we’re asking you make an appointment. Using the link provided (starting Wed 4/15/20) please sign up for a shopping time. Each reservation is 1 hour, and good for up to 4 adults with a manageable number of children (children must stay with an adult at all times) in no more than 2 cars.

There will be sign-up slots available on-line. The link will go live at midnight on April 15th.

No Produce or Eggs. Our farm stand is even smaller than our yard and eggs are difficult for us to acquire right now. So we will be closing off the interior of the stand for the time being. Our register will be temporarily relocated and we’ll stay outside in the fresh air.

Checks and Personal Responsibility. That’s right folks; dust them off. We are encouraging you to pay by check. So bring your check book for a minimum contact experience. Gloves and masks are encouraged, but if you don’t have access we have added a soap and water sink station in the yard to help. And remember as you move thru the yard try to keep some distance between you and the other shoppers. Our tables are, conveniently, just over 5 feet wide.

Know What You Need? Can you make a list of the plants and flowers that will get your garden started until things settle down? Great; put together a list and email it to us at Smithfarmnh@gmail.com . We’ll do in-store pick-up (paid by check only) from 9a-10a Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Email us before 6p Monday, Wednesday or Friday and we’ll get back to you with your monetary total before 10p. Then you can come by in the morning with your already competed personal or business check and load up the car.

We want to thank all of you for bearing with us while we figure out the best ways to be here for you and for continuing to support us, and other small, local businesses in these strange times.
