Ongoing shortage of minimum-security inmates continues to impact farm operations

An ongoing shortage of minimum-security inmates from the Grafton County House of Corrections who have historically provided labor at the Grafton County Farm continues to impact farm operations. The plan for 2022, first implemented last year, is to grow less labor-intensive crops as the Grafton County Commission continues to evaluate the future viability of the county farm, which has the last remaining government-run dairy operation in New Hampshire and in New England.
