Welcome to Hampshire County.

Locals adore it here. Guests daydream about us. Why all the love? Hampshire County is just one of those pockets on the planet where you can be yourself -- any side, any shade, any shape.

We’ve got the music, museums, and martinis to make city slickers feel at home; and the mountains, humanely-raised meats, and home-brewed mead to rival any farm town.

Hampshire County is salt of the earth meets on the rocks with salt.
