Long Plain Farm is a third generation family-owned and operated farm located in the productive Pioneer Valley in Whately, Massachusetts.
Brothers Joe and Walter Hutkoski founded the farm in 1920 when they decided to make their living from the land. In 1994, grandson Scott Hutkoski decided to try his hand at farming to continue the family business while working as a Whately police officer. After finding great satisfaction with the farming lifestyle, Scott decided to run the farm full-time with his brother, Wayne.
Together, the brothers grow a vast array of crops including sweet corn, onions, peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, eggplant, pumpkins, squash, turnips, and various other vegetables on 100 acres of land. The Hutkoski family is of Polish descent (Scott's great-grandfather emigrated from Poland), as are many of the Pioneer Valley families. Reminiscent of the Polish flag, a huge swallowtail is painted over Long Plain Farm's barn to show visitors the family's pride in their native country.
