A remarkable place to live, work or visit...Tamworth, NH.

Tamworth Economic Development Commission hosts AGRIBUSINESS FORUM!

Because the Commission believes that no one town can accomplish as much as a region of towns working together, Selectmen and Planning Board members from the five towns of Albany, Ossipee, Freedom, Madison and Tamworth were asked to identify the agricultural producers in their communities and invite them to our Forum. Since agriculture is the a primary business in our area... It made sense to bring together producers of agriculture and those who need their products.

Information to help growers get to the next step in their efforts to expand their businesses was offered by our speakers who represented grocers, financial institutions, successful growers and producers and those with regulatory knowledge.

Lianne Prentice moderated the Forum and introduced the eight speakers: Maynard Thomson, of 'Raise the Bar'; Sandy Brocaar, of 'Small and Beginning Farmers and NCIC, North Country Cooperative; Katelyn Robinson of Northern Investment Company;

Janice Crawford, of the Mt. Washington Chamber of Commerce, representing Hannafords; Mike McPhail of Farm Credit East; Olivia Saunders, Field Representative of UNH Extension; David Grasse, of the Tamworth Distillery; and Eric Milligan of the NH Mushroom Company.

The speakers shared helpful information and advice to the audience who later had the opportunity to network individually with them for more detailed information. 

At the end, Brit and Jordan from Rosie's Restaurant provided lunch for all!
