We are Nate Everts and Regina Rinaldo. We purchased the farm in May 2020 from John and Carol Perkins who had been operating a dairy and vegetable stand for nearly 40 years. We are proud to be stewards of this beautiful parcel of land in Baker River Valley.
We each have our own agricultural journeys, and somehow were brought together to make the dream of farming a reality.
Nate sometimes thinks he should have been a plumber, but his affinity for moving water through pipes has only helped with building manifolds for various irrigation projects. Before Longview Farm, Nate owned and operated Breezy Valley Farm, a winter hydroponic tomato business, for 3 years. He grew up participating in various family farming activities on his father's farm in Northern Vermont, and in his mother's maple sugar orchard in Rumney, NH.
Born and raised in Rumney, Nate later ventured into Environmental Conservation and Policy, but was beckoned out West to the ski mountains of Colorado. After five years of ski-bumming and restaurant work, only returning to New Hampshire each spring to work in the sugar orchard, Nate decided to return to NH full time.
Nate's favorite vegetables are all of them, especially broccoli, peas, tomatoes, and sweet corn.
Regina began exploring farming out of a desire to understand where her food comes from. As knowledge of the industrial farming complex became more mainstream, Regina sought alternatives to the mess of factory farms and chemical-based agriculture.
This food journey has allowed her to explore her talents as a cook, an artist, and community member: interning with Bread & Puppet Theater, working as kitchen manager at D Acres Farm, lending support to the Local Goods Guide, managing the Plymouth Outdoor Farmers' Market and working with Local Foods Plymouth. The foothills of the White Mountains and the Baker River Valley are where she has planted her roots and bloomed.
She's so excited for the growth of the farm.
She loves a lot of vegetables, but really loves radishes, cauliflower, celery, and fresh parsley.
