Hinsdale, NH

“4-H project gone haywire”

The Hodge sisters are first-generation farmers who fell in love with the work and the animals as youngsters. The girls were barely teenagers when their parents bought Echo Farm to fulfill their own dream of moving to the country. The family’s small farm is “a 4-H project gone haywire,” jokes Beth, the oldest. Soon they discovered Milking Shorthorns, a red and white British dairy breed. “We were supposed to sell them once they were bred,” Courtney explains, “but then Mom said, ‘Wouldn’t it be fun to milk a cow?’”

These indulgent Au Gratin Potatoes with Stout were inspired by the Hodges’ Irish heritage. Learn more about Echo Farm’s delicious farm-made puddings.
