Rota Spring Farm is a third generation dairy farm which was founded in 1911 by my grandparents, Giovanni and Marcella Rota. Giovanni and Marcella Rota came to America from Italy looking for the land of opportunity. They settled in Sterling, Massachusetts with their son Henry, my father. My father worked at our family farm his entire life and took over the business in 1948. I inherited the business in 1987. In 1998, I decided to share my family’s rich heritage and open an ice cream stand and farm store. Today, Rota Spring Farm raises grass-fed beef and grows fruits and vegetables that are sold in our farm store, along with homemade pastries, jams, take-home prepared meals and novelty items. I invite you to visit us and enjoy our farm fresh, award winning ice cream!
