Stuart Farm Stratham, NH
Love of Nature
Nestled at the edge of the Great Bay Estuary, Stuart Farm was one of the first farms to be conserved by the state of New Hampshire. “My parents and aunt sold the development rights on this farm back in the early 80s,’ Lorraine says. “They wanted to ensure the farm would remain undeveloped; it also made it possible over time for us as the younger generations to buy the farm and keep it in the family.” In 2003, the Merrills were named Stewards of the Lands by the American Farmland Trust, the organization’s highest honor.
“It’s hard to imagine not farming, not working with the land." - LORRAINE STUART MERRILL
