Farms and Farmers Market

The Town of Pittsfield is extremely lucky to have such a variety of agricultural operations.  Farms are a backbone of Somerset County and its communities.  Providing jobs, income and wholesome foods, farming is an economic benefit to the community.  The Town and area are indeed fortunate to be able to come to our local farms and the Farmers' Market. The Town has become an agriculture cluster with extensive farming activities.  When compiling the latest Comprehensive Plan, a list of 31 farms was collected.  A number of the farms are commercial dairy farms that sell to the milk industry to provide milk for the State's grocery stores.  Other farms are small family farms or hobby farms.  A number of farms sell to the public which are listed below.

 

Listed below are places where you can find locally grown food for sale:
