To teach appreciation for humane livestock-handling
To provide a safe place for livestock to grow and prosper
To help people to reconnect with America’s agricultural heritage
We are committed to providing the best tasting beef, pork and lamb to our customers. We will only sell meat that has been humanely raised and processed.
Miles Smith Farm is named for the man who founded it in the 1850s and now rests with his family in the farm cemetery. In 1970, the Foundation’s founder Loring Puffer established Rivendell School here. It was a residential institution for New England’s delinquent teenagers until 1982. From 1990 to 1997, the property was home to Learning Networks Foundation, which provided distance learning for adults and in the early 2000s, the Foundation sponsored educational programs for at-risk youth.
Today Carole operates Miles Smith Farm in loving partnership with second husband Bruce Dawson, and the Foundation is the educational facet of that farm, aiming to enhance public understanding of agriculture, and to promote the respectful and humane treatment of livestock animals bringing delicious grassfed beef, pastured pork and lamb to our customers.
LNF hosts farm events were one and all are invited to the Miles Smith Farm in Loudon, N.H.
These events give visitors the opportunity to meet cattle, a donkey, goats, a lamb, cattle, calves, pigs, and to see yoked oxen at work.
Elspeth’s Place is just one of the programs we offer to help youth and adults connect with our farming heritage.
The Highland Riders 4-H Club holds meetings at the farm and provides outreach programs for members and visitors.
