Nestled in the wooded, rolling hills of upstate central New York in southern Herkimer County, the Township of Litchfield is predominately farms and rural homes, many dating to the early 1800's. As you drive along the 57 miles of country roads, you'll see many cows, horses, and even a roaming herd of buffalo! Having 3 churches, 2 golf courses, several farms and a few other businesses, Litchfield is only minutes from schools, shopping, major highways and the cities of Utica and Little Falls. Dozens of ponds, streams, wooded areas and groomed snowmobile trails are a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.
