Short Creek Farm was founded in Northwood, New Hampshire in 2015 by friends Jeff Backer and Dave Viola. Situated on 200 acres of field and forest, we produce pastured pork, grassfed beef, and heirloom vegetables in an ecologically conscientious manner. From our home-grown meats and vegetables, we create delicious, distinctive products that reflect season and are instilled with a sense of place. We look to traditional techniques for inspiration in the field and kitchen while also embracing innovative practices that move agriculture and food culture forward. We aim to be good stewards of the land, to add vitality to the community, and to make good, real food more readily available.
