Old History, New Technology

Welcoming visitors was part of the deal for the Duffy family when they took on the challenge of re-starting a dairy in the 1,000-acre Great Brook Farm state park 22 miles outside of Boston. Agriculture has been part of Great Brook for centuries; Native Americans used the area for sacred sites and seventeenth century cellar holes remain from early colonial settlement. Today, Mark and Tamma Duffy, their daughter, Marlow, and sons, Christopher and Blake, run a state-of-the-art dairy with a “smart” barn housing the first robotic milking system installed in Massachusetts.

Located in a state park with 20 miles of recreation trails.
We think that the more people know about Dairy Farming the better off all farmers will be.
