The Monadnock Farm and Community Coalition’s fall forum, “Agricultural Policy and its Effect on NH Dairy Producers,” will be held on Sept. 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Stonewall Farm, 242 Chesterfield Rd.

N.H. Commissioner of Agriculture, Markets and Food Lorraine Merrill and local panelists will discuss a variety of issues affecting different types of dairy operations. According to Merrill, dairy farms are the “economic engines” of local farming economies and struggle to survive amidst the new local food movement.

Food will be served, compliments of Elm City Brewery and Monadnock Food Coop.
