Got milk? The Bodwell Farm sure does! With its happy cows and lush pastures, this farm maintains a window into New England’s agrarian past. Now one of only six commercial dairies remaining in all of Rockingham County, the Bodwell Farm provides a critical link to the local food network of the Seacoast region. Since 1928, six generations of the Bodwell family have worked this land. SELT is working with the Bodwell family to conserve the farm. To date, leadership grants have been provided by the NH Land and Community Heritage Investment Program, US Natural Resources Conservation Service’s Agricultural Land Easement program, the Russell Farm and Forest Conservation Foundation, and the Lewis Family Conservation Foundation!
With the assistance of SELT and donors like you, the surrounding community can be sure this farm will continue to grow something other than houses.
This project is supported by funds from the sale of the Conservation License Plate (Moose Plate) through the NH State Conservation Committee Conservation Grant Program.
