Short Creek Farm is situated on 200 acres of field and forest in Northwood, New Hampshire. From the pasture-raised pork we produce, we create delicious, distinctive products that reflect season and are instilled with a sense of place. With this share add-on, CSA members will receive a great variety of our products: super flavorful cuts of pork, ready for the grill or oven; an ever-changing selection of our handmade sausages, featuring seasonal ingredients produced on our farm or by other local growers; and a variety of our dry salami, made with traditional French and Italian recipes. We’ll rotate through different pork products over the course of the season (see a sample schedule below, but note that specifics are subject to change) and members can choose whatever they like within each week’s category. Cuts of pork and sausages will come frozen and vacuum-packaged, so there’s no rush if you can’t get to them right away. In all, members will take home 25 pounds of different meats over 20 weeks of porky goodness! For more information about our farm and products, visit www.shortcreeknh.com.

Jeff Backer
Farmer
Before coming to Northwood, Jeff started Potter Hill Farm, in Grafton, Massachusetts, where he grew a wide variety of heirloom vegetables and flint corn and raised pork and beef on pasture. Over five seasons, both he and Potter Hill became a fixture in the lives of many families in the community. Jeff brings the same ecologically-rooted agricultural management he practiced at Potter Hill to Short Creek with the goal of improving the quality of the farmland while at the same time producing nourishing foods from it.

Dave ViolaSausage (etc.) Maker
Dave has had a hand in progressive food companies throughout New England; notably, he developed well-respected charcuterie programs at Farmstead in Providence, Rhode Island and at Moody's Delicatessenand New England Charcuterie in Waltham, Massachusetts. In conversations with Jeff over many years, Dave recognized the need for farmers to be able to turn their goods into higher quality finished products. This is Dave's role at Short Creek - taking the incredible meats and vegetables that we grow on the farm, making them last longer, and making them easier for you to turn into a delicious meal at home.
