Harbor View Farm and Sherman Hill Farm are in Westport, aptly named as the westernmost port in Massachusetts.The two historic farms are part of the Farm Coast of New England, a chain of historic coastal villages, vineyards and farms along the Atlantic Ocean. Along with Tiverton, Little Compton, and Dartmouth, Westport shares a unique setting of antique Colonial-era villages, general stores, mill ponds, stone walls, salt marshes, and rural pastures rolling down to the bay or rivers.In 1947, the family created Sherman Hill dairy farm, situated between two branches of the Westport River, and later pulled in Harbor View Farm overlooking the West Branch of the Westport River and the Atlantic Ocean. The two farms sit on the highest ridges in Westport, taking advantage of the salt-air climate and breezes. The family farms include barns, various support structures, and 120 milking cows plus additional dry and young stock. In 2006, the family dairy operation shifted its focus from fluid milk to artisan cheeses – utilizing the productive soils, grasses, and climate. Today, Shy Brothers Farm® is an award-winning producer of four craft cheeses: Charlotty, Hannahbells® , Cloumage® , and mozzarella curd. Included in the offering is farm equipment, livestock, feed, cheese-related inventory and equipment, and the award-winning Shy Brothers Farm® cheese business. Improvements include two single-family residences, multiple barns and farm-support structures.
