Massachusetts Dairy and the Local Food Movement

Dairy Month Lecture Series

Presenter: Claire Morenon, Communications Manager at CISA, Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture.

Dairy farms are vital to Massachusetts agriculture, but most dairy farms haven’t benefited much from the increased interest in local food and farms that’s developed over the last couple of decades. Come learn why dairy farms are so important and about their unique challenges.

Free wagon ride farm tour begins at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and will take approximately 1 hour. Tour is on a first come first serve basis.

Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and Barstow’s Longview Farm is owned and operated by sixth and seventh generation Barstow’s. Nestled at the base of Skinner State Park and right alongside the Connecticut River, the dairy farm has been a part of the landscape since 1806.

Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery offers homemade baked goods and pies, lunch from local ingredients, farm fresh produce, farm raised beef, ice cream, and scenic views of protected farmland from the porch and dining room. This family friendly store is open daily year round. Come meet your neighborhood dairy farmer!
