Bardo Farm

Freedom Never Tasted So Good

About Us

Dec 13

Bardo Farm is an off-the-grid “family” farm (more like a small unintentional community) with a focus on permaculture using a balance of our agricultural avenues; livestock, gardening, maple-sugaring, foraging, forestry, and more.

Unlike many farms, we like to diversify with a broad range animals and agriculture, not just focus on one. Currently, however, our pigs and chickens rule the farm in numbers (and the pigs certainly in behavior). We are always open to change and introducing new animals and projects. We have organic gardens, and raise our animals using free-range, woodland-raised, and pasture-raised practices whenever possible. Most of our animals are very friendly due to the attention and love we strive to give them. Our goal is to raise happy, healthy animals, and we are always seeking ways to improve our methods and the quality of life for our animals. We feel we are meeting this goal wonderfully so far. After all, happy animals taste better.

Bardo is owned and operated by Neil & Emily Smith and Ian & Jody Underwood.  The four of us moved to New Hampshire in September 2007. We bought a large property with an off-the-grid house so we could pursue our own “bardo”.  We have since started breeding pigs and rabbits and raising chickens for meat and eggs.  We also have ducks, turkeys, goats, an ox, a bull, a rooster and his family, worms, a barn cat, and of course, our pet dogs.

Bardo is located at 92 Forehand Road in Croydon, NH.

    I’d like to buy some rabbit meat. How do you ship it? (i.e., is it frozen? do I need to be home when it arrives?)

    I live nearby, in Plainfield. Shipping might be more convenient for me, but I could come to the farm also.

    I’m wondering if you all have any piglets for sale this year? Or know of anyone else who might be selling? We’re looking for three.

      Hi Regina,

      I’m sorry, but we don’t have any piglets for sale yet. You can check back in a month — we may have some available then.

      Thanks for contacting us,

    We are looking to purchase 3 piglets. Someone from the NH Farm and Gardens FB page suggested you. Do you still have any available and if so what is the price? Thanks so much!
