Historic North Road Farm
In 1998, Jan and her husband Rich moved from Bedford, MA to Fremont, NH to purchased and restore historic North Road Farm

No hammer and nails here! Walk the main floor on 200 year old footwide floor boards. The barn’s frame is settled on a stone foundation where indian tribe signage is seen on large basement stones. A concave root cellar is revealed in one of the basement stone walls. No electric freezers here!
The farm is nestled on a scenic hill overlooking a pond and lush wetland pasture. The horses happily roam freely in this peaceful, bucolic setting being outside. No equine is confined to a stall.
