Julie Barrett Murray loves the 81 acres of forest, field, and stream that has been in her family since 1948.

The Dodge Farm, a 274-acre classic hill farm in Tunbridge and Strafford, was owned by members of the Dodge family for almost 100 years, before it went on the market in late 2013. Until the late 1960’s it was a small dairy farm. Some of the open land continued to be used by neighbors for […]
John and Beth Haynes have a commitment to land stewardship that goes way back. In 1993, they bought the 154-acre farm where John grew up with seven other siblings. From the start, they always allowed their cows to pasture, a practice that made for an easy transition to organic certification in 2007. They’ve won numerous […]
