About

Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery celebrates its 10th Anniversary in the restaurant business in 2018!

We invite you to visit our scenic dairy farm overlooking protected farmland and the Connecticut River.  Eat in, relax on the porch, or take away sandwiches, soups, salads, and light breakfast. Stop in for Absolutely Local milk, eggs, produce, beef, grocery, and craft items from around Western Massachusetts. And of course enjoy our decadent homemade goodies from the bakery made with family recipes and local ingredients.

We offer a drive thru for those days when you just need to grab your coffee or lunch in a hurry. We also offer seating areas inside and out for those who want to stay and enjoy the beautiful view.  Barstow’s is open year round with hours reflecting the seasons.  Check our website or Facebook page for the most up to date hours.

Barstow’s offers a variety of family fun events throughout the year like Burger Fest, Pasture Day, and Winter Dinners.  Visit us to select from our frozen homemade prepared foods for an easy dinner at home.  Place your holiday pie, summer picnic salads, or office party platters with our bakery staff.  Plan your next birthday party, class reunion, or family gathering with Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery.  And visit our website to set up farm tours of our 200 year old working dairy farm to see our anaerobic digester, robotic milkers, and our productive herd of 550 head.

At Barstow’s it is our mission to support local businesses, operate a sustainable business, and to offer a space that continues the important conversation around food, food systems, and agriculture in New England.

Where You'll Find Us

Barstow’s Dairy Store is situated on Barstow’s Longview Farm in a small picturesque hamlet called “Hockanum” which has been designated a National Historic District on Rt. 47, a Historic Scenic Byway in Hadley, Massachusetts.  The fertile farmland and quiet village is home to families that have been here for generations.

Just around the corner from Barstow’s is Joseph Allen Skinner State Park. This 390-acre park, located atop Mount Holyoke, attracts both individuals and families from early April through November. Marked hiking trails, picnic areas, historical displays and special events at the Summit House and spectacular views of the Connecticut River draw thousands of visitors to this site on a seasonal basis.  After your hike up Mount Holyoke, stop into Barstow’s for a bite to eat, or an ice cream cone. Some hikers stop in before heading up the mountain road to pick up a bagged lunch at Barstow’s for a picnic at the Summit House.

Our Menu

Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery offers a light working breakfast for the busy commuter and a lunch menu fit for a leisurely drive down scenic byway Route 47. Sandwiches, homemade soups, and salads are the main event made with fresh, quality ingredients and always a focus on what is local and in season. The store also has a Kid’s Menu.
Born out of the dream of farmers’ daughter, Shannon Barstow, the bakery case is filled with treats made from family recipes. Baked goods are fresh and baked daily also reflecting what is in season. From zucchini bread to pumpkin whoopie pies and apple crisp to strawberry rhubarb pie we keep things fun in the bakery. And of course carry the staples like cinnamon swirls, blueberry muffins, and apple pie.
Barstow’s has a drive thru for mornings when you’re in a rush. We serve local ice cream, local coffee, local produce, and local milk. The store carries the necessary groceries, eggs, cheese, sweet corn, and Barstow’s farm raised beef. And our frozen prepared foods freezer is kept socked with homemade soups, chili, chicken tenders, meatballs, chicken pot pies, and handmade pierogi.
In the summer, Barstow’s hosts Burger Fest and a series of Burger Nights where we feature our Barstow’s farm raised beef. In the winter we host Winter Dinners. Visit our website for more information on our menu and our party platter and prepared foods for your upcoming party, picnic, holiday, or family gathering – http://www.barstowslongviewfarm.com.
