Photo from the Mike Shalhoup Collection
There was a time that turkeys – around 6,000 at their peak – actually roamed a large fenced-in area adjacent to the old Green Ridge Turkey Farm, which was the most recent name of the farm and restaurant that since 1930 was owned by George and Grace Kimball, then Howard Flanders, and finally, the Charpentier brothers, Luc, Victor and Edmund. The man in this photo showing a child around the farm is probably one of the brothers. The photo was taken in the early 1960s, during Green Ridge's heyday. It was taken down nearly 20 years ago to make room for the Barnes & Noble store that now occupies the corner of Daniel Webster Highway and Spit Brook Road.
