Rocks Estate Recieves Farm of Distinction Award
The Dept. of Agriculture, Markets and Food honored the Rocks Christmas tree Farm on February 7th 2004 at the New Hampshire Farm and Forest Expo in Manchester, NH. Since the award program was started in 1997, 64 farms throughout the state have been honored with this title. In 2004, 33 farms were nominated. An independent panel composed of agriculture leaders in the state, historic preservationists and the general public made their selections after on-site reviews and reviews of photographs taken in-season on each farm.
"Boiled down to one sentence, it is a place that makes people driving by stop and say, "Wow, that's a nice looking farm", says Steve Taylor, state agriculture commissioner.
