A member of the Agri-Mark/Cabot Creamery Cooperative in New England, the Fletchers own and operate the last remaining dairy farm in Southampton, Massachusetts. Besides producing milk with their registered herd of 150 Holstein and Jersey cows, they play a major role in the agri-tourism industry inviting the public to enjoy their 100 acre farm and learn about agriculture. The seasonal roadside stand is the perfect place for the best compost to make your garden grow, bark mulch for your landscaping and flowers for Mother’s Day. Come fall it’s time for pick-your-own pumpkins, mums, scarecrows and hayrides. December brings beautiful locally grown Christmas trees and greenery for decorating. With the younger generation committed to the family business, the Fletchers are proud of the most recent accomplishments:
- The distinction of the “Best Pumpkin Patch in New England” from the “Baby You’re the Best” contest sponsored by New England Cable News (NECN) in October 2010.
- Recipient of the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources’ Agricultural Improvement Program Grant resulting in a new modern dairy facility completed in Spring 2011.
- Featured as one of the Massachusetts dairy farms on the Cabot Creamery Cooperative’s Open Farm Tour in October 2011
