N.H. couple aims to create organic, biodynamic farm

CANTERBURY, N.H. — Driving down the sloping hills that lead into Brookford Farm, you could easily mistake the lush, emerald-green fields for Ireland. Pigs and cows dot the 600-plus acres here that husband-wife team Luke and Catarina Mahoney have called home for nearly two years. The two 30-somethings, both first-generation farmers and newcomers to the New Hampshire farming scene, live off the land with their four young sons, ages 6 months to 11. They’re joined by 15 employees who have helped turn the Mahoneys dream of a holistic, diversified farmstead into a successful business.
