Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery
February Newsletter 2018

Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and Barstow’s Longview Farm are located in the historic Hockanum Village in Hadley, MA. Our motto is “Looking Forward Since 1806” and we’ve been taking great care of our dairy herd and of the 450 acres of land we farm for 212 years. Farm and Store are family owned and operated by 6th and 7th generation Barstow’s. We raise a herd of 550 for dairy and beef. We are committed to sustainability, green power, local food, and building a relationship with our community.
