Our part of the world is a picturesque, 150-square-mile piece of land cradled between small mountain ridges on its eastern and western edges. It derives its name from the Farmington River, whose sparkling water and "Wild and Scenic" designation makes it a unique amenity for both residents and visitors. Avon, Canton, Farmington, Simsbury and Granby are the core towns where the Valley's population is concentrated. Burlington, New Hartford, Colebrook and Barkhamsted are part of the larger watershed area. The population of the core towns is approximately 85,000, and more than 100,000 live in the larger area.
While the state capital of Hartford is still a major source of employment and a center of business and cultural activity, the Farmington Valley has a distinct identity as a mature, upscale market that includes its own strong corporate and commercial infrastructure. With quiet neighborhoods placed unobtrusively in a semi-rural setting, a relatively unhurried pace, and superb school systems, it's also among the finest residential communities in Connecticut.
