About the Area

 

The Pioneer Valley is rich in history. It is home to Historic Deerfield and many schools and universities including Northfield Mt. Hermon, Deerfield Academy, Smith College, Mt. Holyoke College, University of Massachusetts, and Hampshire College.


Shelburne Falls is very close by where you can visit The Trolley Museum, The Glacial Potholes, and The Bridge of Flowers.

 

Northampton is a great "small" city to explore and it is only 35 minutes from our farm and 20 minutes from Greenfield. Knitters know it as home to Webs, America's largest yarn store and Northampton Wools but there is so much more there including the Smith College Art Museum and lots of great restaurants and stores.
