Alvirne School Farm

Hudson, NH

Not all dairy farmers are born on a farm; some are made in the classroom. One such high school that features an agricultural program is located in the town of Hudson, New Hampshire, just east of Nashua. Alvirne High School was established in 1950 on a large piece of property left to the town by Alfred and Virginia Hills, and is now home to approximately 1,300 students. In addition to traditional academic departments offered at most high schools, Alvirne, whose name combines the first names of its benefactors, includes a comprehensive career and technical education center, The Wilbur H. Palmer Vocational - Technical Center. Here, students can take classes in a variety of fields, including engineering, horticulture, veterinary science, and agriculture business and management; all disciplines essential in the operation of a full-scale dairy farm.
