After 378 years, N.H. family farm goes up for sale
The only good news in this story is that the land can't be developed into strip malls or condos.
"DOVER, N.H. ó In 1632, John Tuttle arrived from England to a settlement near the Maine-New Hampshire border, using a small land grant from King Charles I to start a farm.
Eleven generations and 378 years later, his field-weary descendants ó arthritic from picking fruits and vegetables and battered by competition from supermarkets and pick-it-yourself farms ó are selling their spread, which is among the oldest continuously operated family farms in America.

Yeah... I somehow doubt they're quite as victimized as is being portrayed. A farm like that would have significant historic value. There are plenty of outs for that family that would allow it to stay in their hands.In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.
In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

Lets not forget the estate taxes I'm sure have something to do with it.
