Who We Are

Where We Came From
What began as a family farm market in Bellingham, Massachusetts, is now the Baystate Outdoor Personia company that designs and builds personalized outdoor structures throughout New England.
Back then the farm market, which still exists in Bellingham, started selling outdoor furniture in addition to eggs, ice cream, and bakery items. Then the business grew to include sheds, and eventually it expanded to what it is today—a full service company specializing in outdoor spaces.
