Hello! Welcome to the Saltonstall Farm.
Long before it belonged to the Saltonstalls, this land was tended and cared for by the Abenaki people. Settlers acquired the Seacoast region in 1638, and this barn was built around 1840.
Dr. Henry Saltonstall, who bought the 100 acre farm plot in 1946, and was known in Stratham for being the town doctor. His daughter, Caroline Saltonstall, grew up on the farm, she used to ride her horses around the main roads of Stratham. Caroline and her husband Buck bought the farm from Caroline's parents and they started an organic pick your own berry farm in 1991 - Berry Hill Farm, which was a wonderful way for families in the community to get to know each other while picking their own organic fruit. Caroline and Buck had two children: Sophie and Winslow Robinson. Sophie grew up knowing she wanted to live on the farm, and in 2019 she married K. Kyle Blume. They decided to take Saltonstall as their last name and to give the farm a new phase of life.
The mission of the Saltonstall Farm is to bring healthy, regenerative food to the local community. We aim to preserve local, productive land and to use the space we have for the benefit of the community.
The Robinwood Center rents space from the Saltonstall Farm. The Robinwood Center is the non-profit branch of the farm- everything mission aligned is through the Robinwood Center. The Saltonstall Farm is a working for-profit farm and can host for profit, non-mission related events, which helps keep Robinwood Center costs low. The barn is unheated so the months of operation are April 1st - October 31st.
