New Hampshire Canterbury
Catarina and Luke Mahoney met at a farm near St. Petersburg, Russia in the fall of 1999 and lived there for five years. This 240-acre diversified, biodynamic farm was set up to provide a healthy living and working environment for handicapped individuals. At the farm they were exposed to many different aspects of agriculture and sustainable living.
The farm was in shambles but its bones were strong; the site sang to Dean and Barbie Tilton and, adding to the allure, it was in Barbie’s hometown of Canterbury, New Hampshire. So in 1993, they embarked on the long journey of lovingly restoring and rebuilding a derelict small farm and to own something they had always wanted. The “somedays” began flooding their discussions. Someday they would have a new foundation; someday they would have a new kitchen; someday they might even have a new barn.
