Goodbye, Farmer Tuttle!

It is with some trepidation that I say this, because the media have been announcing the demise of the Tuttle Farm for thirty years or more. Invariably, it was the media outlet (Life magazine was a notable fatality) that went belly up, while the Tuttles kept on farming. But the Boston Globe, Foster's Dover Democrat, and CCN all agree: the Tuttle Farm is for sale after nearly four centuries. Eleven generations of Tuttles--man and wife, brother and sister--have farmed these gorgeous acres between the Spaulding Turnpike and the Piscataqua River in Dover, New Hampshire. The asking price is $3.5 million. And there's a catch: apparently there's a conservation easement on the place. No housing development or shopping mall need apply. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
