Hi! We're Rich & Kay Masta. We started Something Wild Farm in the foothills of the Sandwich Range Wilderness back in 2018.
We both fell in love with the mountains of NH at an early age and knew we wanted to settle here. Once we stumbled upon an old 1860's colonial cape farmhouse on 15 acres of overgrown pasture in North Sandwich, we knew we found our home and future farm.
We have worked hard to undo years of neglect, never losing sight of the potential of this land. It was wild in every sense: a jungle of six-foot tall weeds, boulders hidden under overgrowth, tangles of leftover fencing, Whiteface and the Sandwich Range looming in the distance. We continue to make progress, now with the help of Romney sheep and a flock of assorted chickens, in reclaiming the land for the agricultural pursuits that permeates its history.
Gardens now grow fruits and vegetables, herbs and medicinal flowers. Buckets and tubing hang from maple trees, the evaporator running sun-up to sun-down from February to April. Pollinators find sanctuary in the dandelions, goldenrod, and wildflowers. Bleating sheep help graze the land while clucking chickens help to till it.
We found the place we truly belong and will continue to foster partnerships and community in our little corner of the world. To support the mission, we sell pasture-raised soy-free eggs, maple syrup, wool, candles, salves made with dandelion and calendula from our own gardens, locally harvested Christmas trees and wreaths, and all sorts of other farm-made goods!
