Endangered American breed, Randall Cattle, being cared for by owners of ALT-conserved Ambrose Farm in Turner.

This 100-acre former dairy farm, and former Turner Poor Farm, is on the crest of a hill with views of Mounts Washington, Jefferson, and Madison on a clear day. Franklin and Phyllis Ambrose generously donated a conservation easement on this property to ALT in 2000.

Cathy and Dennis Knudsen, current owners of Ambrose Farm in Turner, who are maintaining some traditional agricultural practices on 50 acres and care-take the significant wooded and wetland portions of the property on the other 50 acres.

Blanchard Brook and its wetlands flow through this property to Jersey Bog, making this parcel part of the Jersey Bog Conservation Area, also part of the Androscoggin River Watershed.

This property is privately owned and is not open to the general public, though the current owners, Kathy and Dennis, do encourage coordinated educational public events such as nature walks and farm tours to take place there.  Contact ALT for information.
