  • About

    Welcome to the town of New Braintree, Massachusetts.
    In 1709, 6000 acres were granted to the residents of the village of ?Braintree Farms? .
    Additional tracts of land which were formerly part of Brookfield and Hardwick were acquired
    and in 1751 the town was incorporated as New Braintree.
    Once occupied by a large contingent of Native Americans, the area became known for its
    farms and bountiful harvest. By the late 18th century, New Braintree was shipping its
    annual production of cheese, other dairy products and beef to Boston and had attained a high degree
    of prosperity. Over 1,000 milk cows lived in New Braintree by the 19th century and the town
    produced over 200,000 pounds of cheese annually. Townspeople worked as cobblers, carriage
    builders and tool makers.
    Today, this idyllic community is home to just over 1,000 people and the town has maintained its rural,
    farming character, with one working dairy farm, a commercial
    orchard and several prosperous produce farms.
