Bode Miller's foundation reels in prize: organic farm in N.H.

Bode Miller’s foundation reels in prize: organic farm in N.H.{mosimage}SUGAR HILL, N.H. – Bode Miller’s foundation has bought a 630-acre farm once owned by another skiing family and will use it to promote organic farming.

The Turtle Ridge Farm foundation bought the Ski Hearth Farm last week and plans to expand farming operations and keep a seasonal farm stand open while working toward organic certification.

The Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests protects it from development and limits its use to farming and forestry.

Kyla Miller-White is the skier’s sister and a member of Turtle Ridge’s board.

“It’s going to stay the same,” Miller-White said in last week’s edition of The Caledonian-Record. “We’re just going to promote organic farming.”

Joan Hannah, whose parents owned the farm, skied for the U.S. Olympic team in 1960 and 1964 and won a bronze medal in the giant slalom at the 1962 World Championships.

Miller, the defending World Cup overall champion, was a two-time Olympic silver medalist in 2002.
