Vegetable Ranch was founded by Larry Pletcher in 1988 as one of the first organic farms in the state of New Hampshire; it has remained so for over 30 years. Larry was loved by all who knew him and acted as a great boss and mentor to all. He played a key role in the development of the organic farming community in the greater area.
Larry passed away in 2021 but his legacy lives on through the dedicated workers and farming community he has created.
Vegetable Ranch remains in the Pletcher family and is now owned by his daughter Jennifer Pletcher and managed by Molly Alfonso, an employee of four years.
Vegetable Ranch is a local source of high quality certified organic produce. From lettuce to tomatoes, spinach to potatoes, from broccoli to squash and peppers, the farmers at the Vegetable Ranch LLC grow more than 40 heirloom and New England vegetables with good nutrition and a healthy environment in mind.
Our mission is to provide healthy, sustainably grown food to our community and help bring awareness to the importance of buying and supporting local. We deeply believe that local organic produce tastes better and is better for your health; while organic farming practices make farms and customers alike better stewards of our environment.
