Pelham's Agricultural History

Local farming was a necessity for more than Pelham’s residents in the middle of the 19th century. The uprising of mill cities like Nashua, Lowell and Lawrence meant that families did not have the time to keep their own livestock or grow their own food. During this time, the farmers of Pelham acquired much wealth and prestige as the providers of food for many working families in the area, including vegetables, dairy products and fruit.
