    • 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.
