Steps taken to boost sale of old New Hampshire farm

DOVER, N.H. — One of the nation’s oldest family farms in Dover still hasn’t been sold, but authorities say progress is being made.

The 378-year-old Tuttle Farm has been on the market for $3.35 million for about a year with no sale.

But in the past month, Rebecca Moore has been hired by the New Hampshire Institute of Agriculture and Forestry to serve as the director of farm operations and education for the property.

The NHIAF has been working with the Tuttles to find the best buyer possible.

Foster’s Daily Democrat reports that Moore’s job is to manage and work with the new farmers the organization has brought in to grow crops at the site.

The Tuttle family is allowing new farmers to cultivate their land to grow vegetables and organic crops.
