The New Hampshire Farm & Forest Exposition is an annual winter fair that occurs in February. Begun in 1984, the New Hampshire Farm & Forest Expo has been in operation over 30 years. The Expo is sponsored by the NH Department of Agriculture, Markets & Food, the NH Division of Forests & Lands, and the University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension.
The Expo has a two fold mission of 1) bringing together the state's farming and forestry communities to share ideas and views on industry needs and 2) providing a fun and interesting venue for the public to learn about these industries and their impact on life in New Hampshire. The exposition includes workshops, speaker programs, large trade show featuring equipment, products and food produced or sold in New Hampshire, children's program called Kid's Night and much more.
