Local historian Alan Rumrill will present an online talk called “In the Far Pasture: 300 Years of Agriculture in the Monadnock Region” on Sept. 9 from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Rumrill will discuss how agriculture in southwest New Hampshire has changed from the time of Native American habitation to the present day. He’ll outline the transition from 18th-century subsistence farms to organic farming and specialization in the 21st century, a story of hard work, geography, technology and economics.
