Four Stars Farm
Nestled along the banks of the Connecticut River you’ll find our family farm, a fertile piece of land (about 250 acres), upon which we live and work. Our heritage is deeply rooted in agricultural tradition, built and passed down by 14 generations, and driven by a steadfast commitment to responsibly balance what is right for the environment with what is viable for our farmland and our family. Over the years, the farm has evolved and innovated to remain sustainable in changing markets and helped to guide our focus on being hops farmers.

Five Generations of Farming in Hardwick:
Past, Present, & Planning for the Future
We are the Prouty family: two-time honorees of the Massachusetts Century Farm award, presented to farms that have been owned and operated by the same family for 100 years or more. Ours is a diversified, multi-generational farm in business continuously since 1888. We are a former dairy changing with the times in order to remain a viable agricultural entity, working to fill the gaps and niches in both food and crop production in Massachusetts. We are a year-round, four-season farm producing quality goods and pastured beef and meats so central Massachusetts families can feed their families well, affordably, reliably. We are a breed now limited in number, drawing upon the foundations of our past to live well in the present and build toward the future.
