tuttles farm, pages for Yankee magazine with photos

When Jennifer Latson, a third-year master of fine arts student in creative writing student at UNH, heard that Tuttle’s Farm, America’s oldest family farm in Dover, was for sale, she thought, ‘They can’t sell America’s oldest family farm!’ She had a nostalgic sense that it should be preserved at all costs, but after learning more about the family’s complex relationship with the land, she realized that the situation was much more nuanced, and that sometimes the cost of preservation really can be too high. Latson’s story about Tuttle Farm, which is told from the point of view of Lucy Tuttle, is featured in the November/December issue of Yankee magazine “Blood Ties to the Land” (p. 104).  READ ONLINE >>
