Tensen Farm

Lyme, NH


Tensen is a small family farm run by Arend and Paula Tensen and son, AJ offering high-quality, grass-fed beef with a grain finish which is also grown on the farm. The main Tensen farm is located on a former dairy farm which Arend and Paula bought in 2014. Paula is an eighth-generation member of the Balch family to live in this Connecticut River town, located in the Upper Valley of Grafton County. Although not all have been farmers, AJ has high hopes of being a ninth-generation Balch to live in Lyme and make his living from the land. You can follow AJ known as “The Beef Farmer” on YouTube and Instagram for a glimpse of daily life at raising and processing field crops and working with cattle. Tensen Farms has been designated a “New Hampshire Farm of Distinction.”
