Hart’s has a unique and interesting background. In the late 1940’s, brothers Russ and Larry Hart and their wives left New Jersey to begin farming in New Hampshire. Helen and Gerda helped their husbands in growing vegetables and apples; in addition, the two couples sold chickens, eggs and turkeys from a delivery truck. In 1953, they raised turkeys exclusively and in 1954 opened a 12-seat restaurant specializing in delicious turkey sandwiches and dinners. “Quality, service and home-style cooking” have always been the restaurant’s motto and highest priority.
