Western Massachusetts boasts a broad array of businesses, from food processing to high-technology companies. The area’s rich soil is ideal for farming and supports many commercial agricultural enterprises. While maintaining its rural character, the region is seeking ways to revitalize its downtowns, give dormant buildings new life, assist business expansion, retain companies and jobs, and attract newcomers.
