Local Harvest Initiative

As a Land Grant University, UNH is committed to supporting and advancing the state's agricultural economy. Small, family farms are not only part of our state's heritage, but play a vital, active role in our current economy and culture. In recognition of the many benefits a vibrant agriculture affords in NH, the UNH Local Harvest initiative will raise awareness and educate students, staff and community members about our local agricultural landscape and its role in sustaining our physical and economical health and well-being, now and in the future.

Local Harvest Feast

Held each September or October, the Local Harvest Feast is an evening of fine dining on mouth-watering creations, produced from local foods. Open to the public and students alike, this hugely popular event is a chance for attendees to learn why supporting local agriculture and food producers is so important. You'll have the opportunity to meet various local producers and browse their presentation tables before or after dinner. See what our menu offer for the upcoming Local Harvest Dinner!
