According to LondonderryNH.net, Griffin Farm was located near the Londonderry and West Windham line, on Breakneck Hill (now Griffin Avenue). Frank Griffin and his wife Margaret bought the farm in 1898 and added the third story to accommodate their ten children. By the 1940s, the farm produced enough native green peas to support a wholesale and retail business in the crop. Evidently adequate farm help could not be found in West Windham, as the farm's owner would advertise in the Nashua Telegraph looking for pea pickers. On Friday mornings, a truck would leave Griffin Farm for Nashua, arriving at the Soldiers and Sailors monument around 8AM. The truck would transport anyone looking for a days work picking peas back to the farm and later back to Nashua. With the peas picked every Friday, Griffin Farm would take orders by telephone for deliveries to be made in the Nashua area each Saturday.
