Come to the hills of Western Massachusetts. Come explore the towns and tiny villages of Jacob's Ladder Trail.
Who we are
The JLBA is a group of people with a goal of facilitating business opportunities in the hilltowns, while recognizing and preserving the natural beauty, neighborliness, and resources of the area. The JLBA works hard to promote the "Buy Local" concept. We also strive to build a support network for the diverse businesses that currently exist and promote attitudes that will encourage new business.
Just as the hilltowns are recognized for recreational opportunities, they are equally known for their diverse and far-flung stores, restaurants and cottage businesses. The low population density which gives our area its rural charm is a marketing challenge in conventional terms.
As business people in the hilltowns, the members of the JLBA are well acquainted with the problems of reaching a market in our area. Our strength lies in our diversity. By maintaining an open line of communication among our membership, we make available the combined business experiences of dozens of business people faced with the same obstacles. Tapping into this network offers the solutions, sometimes mundane, sometimes wildly creative, to these common marketing problems.
The JLBA gives its membership more political clout. By speaking with a unified voice, we have an opportunity to shed more light on the needs of our area with our political representatives. If you live in the hilltowns of western MA, your business is here, or you wish to do business here, you should join us!
