A brief history of Ledge Top Farm
Ledge Top Farm has been growing chemical-free vegetables and small fruits in Wilton, New Hampshire since 1977.
We began with a little less than three acres of mostly forested land by carving out a small garden space. As the years passed into the early 1980s we also raised pigs and turkeys. By the mid 80’s through the 90’s, the focus switched to pick-your-own raspberries as more land was transformed from forest to farm. After 18 years, the pick-your-own raspberry plants were discontinued for vegetable production.
In 1990, a 4-acre rock-free field in Amherst became available for use. Part of this field was used for vegetable production, especially potatoes. This area also became the site of the Farm Stand, and is known as Frog Hollow Farm on Courthouse Road in Amherst.
From June to October, vegetables are sold fresh daily on the Frog Hollow Farm Stand in the afternoons. By mid- to late June, there is usually enough produce to stock the stand daily. Only products grown on the farm are sold at the stand, with the exception of corn. When corn is in season, it is purchased from another farm.
Customers are encouraged to visit the farm, find out about our growing methods, and see first hand what we have to offer!
