Rosaly Bass


Annie Card

Rosaly Bass’s strong hands have seen 35 years of working these 16 acres of rocky soil — the oldest certified organic farm in the state. She’ll harvest as much as 10,000 pounds of tomatoes for her farm stand this season, plus kale, cucumbers, squashes, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, eggplants, flowers, and lots more. And she’ll sell 100 pounds of her mesclun mix a week.

Rosaly’s Organic Garden, 25 Elm Hill Road/Route 123. 603-924-7774.
