Outdoor adventure and farm-to-table food in New England.
The hilly countryside of southern New Hampshire was once known as America’s first “dairyland.” Locals still maintain a strong connection with their farming-and-hunting roots, and offer travelers ways to tap into this way of life—with falconry lessons and farm stays, to name just a few.
New Hampshire School of Falconry
With a professional falconer, conduct a one-on-one half-day Field Hunt, in which you follow a hawk as it stalks pheasants, quail, and partridges, at one of America’s only schools of falconry.
The organic farm that supplies eggs and vegetables to the region is also a hotel. Ask for colonial quarters, which are in the two original 1760 rooms of the house.
Aylmer's Grille at the Woodbound Inn & Resort
Sit at the chef’s table and watch chef Aylmer Given, who fuses French and American cuisines, like duck with wild cherry risotto.
