DOVER, N.H.—A New Hampshire farm that has been in the same family since the 1630s and has been called the nation's oldest family run farm is for sale.

The owners of Tuttle's Red Barn in Dover have listed their entire property -- a market, a farmhouse and 134 acres of land -- through a real estate agent for $3.35 million.

Lucy Tuttle, who owns the business with her brother, told Foster's Daily Democrat that running the farm and business is more than they can handle now and that none of their children want to over. She said the land is protected and can't be used for anything other than agriculture.

The family says the farm has passed down through 11 generations since John Tuttle first cultivated the land in the 1630s.
