Integrity Farm is located on a beautiful horse farm in Southern NH. It is close to Route 93 in NH exits 3,4 or 5 (also 495 exit 51B in Plastow, NH).
At Integrity Farm we have been breeding quality animals since 1985. We started by breeding Lippitt Morgan horses, we raised and showed our stallion to a 5 time grand champion stallion and Justin Morgan winner. We produced 3 to 4 foals a year. I was also a founding member of the Lippitt Morgan Breeders association. For many years now we have specialized in breeding only Labrador Retrievers. We breed from AKC parents who have OFA clearances. We believe in temperament, soundness and type.
When I was a child, both my Mom & Dad raised, bred, and showed Afghan Hounds. For many years my Dad was a Civil Engineer working for ITT in Mass and RCI in NJ. On his off time he was president of the Greater Lowell Kennel Club with both of my parents very involved with dogs. My Mom helped run handling classes, and was also a dog groomer and worked from our kennel at home. My brother Barry finished many of the family dogs with both American & Canadian titles. Our kennel was established in the 1950s/1960 in Methuen, Massachusetts and was called Charman Kennels. My dad had beagles for hunting.
My parents also bred and had Harness race horses, as well as pleasure-riding horses. I showed horses and was involved in the Methuen Mane Tamers 4-H program at a young age. I competed at local state fairs and 4-H shows. I was also involved with the FFA (Future Farmers of America) when I went to Pinkerton Academy, back when they had cows at the school. I had even shown a cow at the Deerfield Fair for my school.
I only tell you all this because people often ask, "How did you ever get started in all this?"
Because I was raised with all these animals, it only seems natural that they are still a BIG part of my life. For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for animals. Growing up on a farm with a quarter of a mile race track in your back yard was cool and fun. It is weird, animals are what I would call a healthy addiction, just not a good financial move, especially the horses. But once they are in your blood it is hard to live with out them.

We are now just a member of it, but I use to be very active, at one point I was the webmaster. I was the Vice President as well as the public education chairperson. I went to schools to teach pet safety. I also went to pet expos, pet adoption fairs and other dog events. I pass out AKC brochures. and also used to do our club newsletter.
- New Hampshire Dog Breeders
I was also the webmaster for the Greater Lowell Kennel Club. This is the club my parents were most involved in, my dad was the president for many years. Another great club, I still know some of the old timers. Pretty soon I will not even be the webmaster of my own site because the computer stuff is way over my head now.
We follow the American Kennel Club rules for record keeping and identification and I am an AKC BREEDER OF MERIT.
We occasionally have puppies available. We concentrate on producing good quality and easy-to-train dogs that become a loving pet, show dog or hunting dog - all a lab can be! Our Labrador retriever puppies are purebred and they are raised with much TLC and socialization to integrate easily into any lifestyle. Pups go home with their first set of shots and a NH health certificate. They are wormed before they leave our home.
We take PRIDE in our dogs, their litters, and also in our facilities. We hope that after visiting our site, you will feel like you know something about us and are comfortable working with us.
