Austin Brothers Valley Farm was founded more than 130 years ago by the Austin family. At that time, farms were numerous in Western Massachusetts, with dairy the mainstay. Milk production was the livelihood of Austin Farm until 2006. Then the economy changed. But the Austin family’s commitment to farms and “buy local” continued to remain strong.
Austin Farm is situated on 130 acres of green pasture and is operated three generations of Austins, with the home front being the center for Austin Family gatherings. Backed by tradition and family dedication, Billy, Roxanne, their son Michael, his wife, their four kids, and daughter-in-law have transitioned from dairy farming to raising beef. Selling whole and half sides of beef, beef cuts from their farm store and at farmers’ markets.
Our cattle are raised naturally on green pasture, fed hay, silage, and freshwater. No hormones or feed additives are used. Our beef is USDA inspected and dry-aged for 14-21 days for tenderness and taste. We offer a wide variety of cuts to fit anyone’s taste and budget.
