About Our Farm

IMG_5100.jpg

Lindy & Chris

Beans & Greens Farm was founded by Andy & Martina Howe, local dairy farmers from Gilford.

   

For 30+ years Beans & Greens has constantly sought to adapt a unique farm experience - to provide as much high quality, locally produced food & fun as possible!

 

In April of 2021 the Beans and Greens torch was passed on to the new owner Chris Collias.  Chris with his girlfriend Lindy have spent the first year armed with a great culinary team, his dedicated and hard-working retail staff.

The farm's always brought agriculturally enthusiastic people together in one place to grow, cook & eat great foods while working hard to help the farm stay productive season after season.

Our Farmstand

Sawyer's Flats, or The Intervale, is where Beans & Greens makes its home on the old Rand & Smith Farm. In the late 90's the team renovated the 200 year old timber framed barn, in addition to having Beans & Greens farmstand's new home designated a Historic landmark.

The Beans & Greens campus is also home to several other unique Timber Frame buildings, including the historical farmhouse and potting shed, the reclaimed and redesigned 1800's rear of the main barn, and numerous other outbuildings. 

 

In the middle of the grounds is our pavilion, built by the Howe Family (led by timber framer Andy), from scratch, from their own forests.
