About The Fox and Crow Farm
We embrace change. We innovate courageously.
Jared and I have been "building" a farm since 2013. Since we relocated to Barnstead in 2015 we have opened our fixer upper farm up to community and allowed our customers to help shape its future.
Offering farm raised meats, eggs and farm foods became a staple here but we still had all of this extra space with woods, wildlife and peace. Our focus then went to how we can share this tranquility with you. What started as a tent platform became a cabin. What started as a dirt bike path became a snowshoeing trail. What was left of our wedding site became an outdoor yoga studio. What is currently our farm store became a intimate dining area to watch the full moon rise over the hill.
We decided it's time to connect you with something even more valuable and unique: the land.
We are so grateful for our community. You are all part of our journey of reuniting this historic property with its original foundation of agriculture, nature and service. From the Native Americans, to the settlers from the North and South and over the ocean to the founding men and women who helped form this town, this land has remained true to its purpose and we aim to keep it on that path. We welcome you all to our farm culture here and look forward to finishing some of the projects that will enable you to spend more time here and bring your friends and family.
Live Free and Farm Barnstead!
Jared was raised in New Hampshire. A wild child with an old soul, he was fortunate to grow up with a large surrounding of amazing friends and family. Everyone supported and embraced his energy and, at time, mischievous behavior and encouraged him to go in the direction of his dreams.
Always finding things to start (and eventually finish,) Jared developed an interest in building and excelled in his wood shop classes. He graduated from Pinkerton Academy and was off to Portland Maine to begin his college career in carpentry, construction, contracting and business management. While enrolled at Southern Maine Community College Jared moved into an apartment community Erin was managing/leasing at the time. They became indirect neighbors and friends from the start. He came back to Maine to complete more schooling at the University of Southern Maine and Jared and Erin eventually moved in together. The two of them lived in Maine for a couple of years before deciding to move their careers to New Hampshire, a few towns away from where Jared grew up.
Now, owning his own farm in New Hampshire, Jared enjoys building anything and everything that requires wood. He is the proud owner of Red Fox Carpentry, his first personal business endeavor.
Jared also enjoys riding dirt bikes, spending time on the lake with his fishing boat, hiking, camping and spending time with his friends and family. Both Erin and Jared have been working on gutting and refinishing their new home in New Hampshire and building a lasting farm together.
Erin, a Texas native, was born with a pure entrepreneurial spirit. A former real estate agent, executive for brands like Calvin Klein, POLO Ralph Lauren and a commercial real estate investment trust, Simon Property Group, Erin has years of experience in both retail management, real estate and leasing.
When Erin and Jared decided to relocate to New Hampshire she immediately started looking for a farm to purchase. With farming, a retail store and rental cabins on her mind, she found exactly what she was looking for in Barnstead, NH.
Immediately following the Covid shutdowns in early 2020, Erin teamed up with the local Farmers Market and built a cross town online platform for grocery shopping from all LOCAL farmers and vendors; New Hampshire Farm to Door (tm).
Today her online business has flourished year after year with her farm raised products, handmade crafts and selected items from all over the USA.
All of the items on the website are made by Erin and Jared or sourced from USA crafters, artisans, resellers, etc. Many of her items are made in the USA and support families and small communities.
