New Hampshire Mason
Located high on a hill in Mason, New Hampshire Barrett Hill Farm has seen its share of lightning. In fact, it was lightning that destroyed the original farmhouse and barns, forcing the farm to be moved to Ashburnham, Massachusetts. Ralph Barrett fully rebuilt the farm in the 1960’s on a beautiful spot from which you can see Boston. Lightning rods now, of course, crown the farmhouse and each of the barns. No sense tempting fate. Today, although Ralph and wife Sandy are still a big part of the farm life and continue to live on the land, their son, Matt LeClair and his wife Beth have farmed Barrett Hill since Matt’s graduation from the University of New Hampshire in 1990.
