Two days before he passed away at the age of 96, George Tully was on a tractor plowing the fields. George’s long and active life was devoted to his family, to his community and to the farm where his father was born in 1873. He and his wife June raised seven children on the farm while serving on many town boards and also founding the organization that became the Dunstable Rural Land Trust. They worked tirelessly to protect the town’s agricultural character and their grandson, Charlie Tully, who now runs the farm, shares that deep commitment.
Charlie and his wife, Jennifer, raised their four children on the family farm set in a quiet corner of conserved land sprinkled with old stone walls and houses belonging to family members. “My grandparents always wanted to keep family around,” Charlie says. His grandfather, who had seven children with his wife, June, was devoted not only to family, but to his community. He served on many town boards and also founded the organization that became the Dunstable Rural Land Trust leaving a legacy the Tullys continue.
