Support family farms at TuttleFest, 3/19

For 379 years, the Seacoast community has supported Tuttle’s Farm in Dover, NH—the oldest continually operating family farm in America—but the Tuttles are ready to pass the reins. They’ve enlisted the help of the New Hampshire Institute of Agriculture and Forestry (NHIAF) to help put the farm into the hands of those who will both respect the history and tradition of the land and shepherd it into the future.

On March 19 from 12 noon to 9 pm, NHIAF and Tuttle’s Red Barn will host TuttleFest: a day dedicated to supporting and celebrating the tradition of small family farms. Food from the Seacoast will be served up to the accompaniment of live local bands; llama rides and other child-friendly activities will engage the next generation in local agriculture, up close and personal!

Many local organizations will be represented at TuttleFest—including the Green Alliance and some of its business partners. Come join the fun while raising money and awareness about the importance of family farms to their communities, in the Seacoast and beyond.
