New Hampshire Farm To Close After 378 Years


In 1632, an English settler, John Tuttle, made his way across the pond to the New World. At that time there were only 100 European colonists in what would become the state of New Hampshire. King Charles I granted Tuttle a small land grant in this area. Tuttle felled trees and started a small farm. Over time, the 20 acre farm grew ten-fold; meanwhile the surrounding forest gave way to highways and houses. Eleven generations worked on this land, but the current generation will be the last. The farm, or “Tuttle’s Red Barn,” which by some accounts is the oldest continually operating farm in the United States, will close.
