DAcres is what inspired me to settle in my home state of NH, because I knew I could be connected with a community and network of people committed to this ultimate experiment of practicing a regenerative, life-giving, way of being on this planet, during what can feel like uncertain times. I continue to retreat to DAcres where I'm nourished physically with the delicious food and hiking trails, intellectually with the stimulating conversations around the wood stove or in the kitchen, and emotionally from the welcoming and inclusive group of folks I find there. DAcres is an incredible asset to this region and I'm so grateful to be connected.

I like your work and enjoy visiting D Acres. But donating could have been simpler. Having to designate the donation forces a decision - I just want you to use the donation where it's most needed.
`I clicked on "Professional in this field" without being able to say which field, and clicked to say that I was not a robot, feeling like I was wasting my time. Now I'm selecting images with palm trees!
`Please - keep it simple! We'rre all getting inundated with requests for donations now.

D Acres teaches skills of sustainable living and small-scale organic farming as well as providing activities that bring people together to have fun and learn at the same time. It is a great place for building community, learning how to respect the environment, and getting reacquainted with cooking and eating real food.

D Acres is an organic farm and educational homestead which is helping many people explore their relationship with agriculture. Serving both interns from afar and our regional community with workshops and a variety of educational and food activities this non-profit works to increase societies knowledge and skill in local agriculture production. The constant stream of food activities and educational sessions allows everyone to find something to enjoy.
Located between the White Mountains and NH Lakes region it is a wonderful place to visit and has hostel services available.
