About Dan Innis
Republican Candidate for NH State Senate

Former State Senator (District 24)

Owner, Trail’s End farm
Daniel E. Innis, is a businessperson, a Professor of Marketing and Hospitality Management at the University of New Hampshire, a former state senator from District 24, and owner of Trails End Farm (formerly Battles Farms) in Bradford, NH. He is the former Dean of the Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics at the University of New Hampshire, a position he held from 2007 to late 2013, and he has owned and operated two inns and a hotel (The Hotel Portsmouth).
Dan was the driving force behind the new Peter T. Paul College building, a $50 million project that resulted in a state-of-the-art business building at the University of New Hampshire—the first academic building constructed at UNH with no direct state capital support. The building opened in March 2013.
A lifelong conservative Republican, Dan served previously as a NH State Senator from District 24 (his former home near the University of New Hampshire campus).
Despite his successful career as a business professor and small business owner, Dan always sought to return to his family’s heritage of local farming. He purchased the former Battles Farm and renamed it Trail’s End, an homage to his great-grandfather’s farm, and moved to Bradford.
The 18-month restoration project is nearing completion. A new farmhouse has been built. The 1800-era barn, which includes two King’s Pine beams from Bradford, was nearing collapse but has been restored.
Today, Trail’s End farm has over 300 chickens, a dozen cows, seven goats, and three pigs arriving soon. While hay is the largest product of the farm, by late summer the farm will produce a wide range of vegetables. The farm is 100% organic.
Following the shutdowns of the pandemic and the economic crisis being caused by the Biden Administration’s failed policies, Dan decided to once again run for the NH State Senate in District 7 to focus on improving our economic climate and helping to grow good-paying jobs in rural New Hampshire, to protect our constitutional freedoms, to preserve our New Hampshire traditions and keeping our taxes low.
Dan resides in Bradford and has three children, all of whom are UNH graduates.
District 7 includes the towns of Alexandria, Andover, Boscawen, Bradford, Bridgewater, Bristol, Danbury, Franklin, Goshen, Grafton, Hebron, Henniker, Hill, Hillsborough, Newbury, Orange, Salisbury, Sutton, Tilton, Warner, Webster, and Wilmot.
