New England’s Tap House Grille and Hip Peas Farm – An Amazing Sustainable Cooperative

Hooksett NH – The HereInNH team had a great lunch at New England’s Tap House Grille and then visited Hip Peas Farm in Hooksett NH. The restaurant and the farm have a surprising connection and are more interconnected than you might expect. I invite you to learn about this impressive sustainable relationship between New England’s Tap House Grille and Hip Peas Farm.

The New England Tap House Owner Dan Lagueux Bought a Farm and Brought His Own Vegetables To The Table Straight From Hip Peas Farm

New England’s Tap House Grille

The Tap House Grille offers a new take on the classic American Grille. Their from scratch kitchen means that each meal is individually crafted by one of their talented chefs. They also work hard to support New England brands which means many locally-brewed beers run through their taps and many local ingredients in their dishes.

Dan Lagueux’s aim was to keep his Tap House customers healthy with great organic vegetables from an awesome organic farm. Dan had the Tap house built in January of 2013 and he purchased the Farm in July of 2017. Hip Peas Farm is a 150 Year old Farm House and has 5 1/2 acres of land right in Hooksett NH.
