About Us

Welcome to the City of Farmington! We are defined less by boundaries on a map than by the sense of shared values our residents hold dear. We take pride in maintaining a wholesome lifestyle, rich in cultural history, along with a deep commitment to the preservation of our environment and a progressive approach to local business. 

Visitors to Farmington, and Van Buren County, are struck by the unique beauty of the area and the atmosphere of being set apart from the rush of the every day world. Farmington is nestled in a peaceful valley at the southern edge of Van Buren County. The Des Moines River borders one side of the town, while the rolling hills and steep ridges of Shimek Forest encircle the other sides.

Of course, if you are already one of our lucky residents you know much of what we had hoped to tell you. But we hope this site will be a valuable addition to local residents and visitors alike.

Please take a few moments to check out our new web site and if you are new to this area . . please plan to visit us in person soon!
