Welcome to Stafford, NY


The town of Stafford is located in east-central Genesee County, between the city of Batavia and the town of LeRoy. Route 5 runs through the middle of town, and the Thruway is just a few miles north. This is one of the first towns that was settled in Genesee County, with farmers lured here because of the rich agricultural soil. Farming is still the main industry, and drives along Stafford’s country roads reveal lots of picturesque farmland.


Stafford has about 35 small businesses, and a wider variety of shopping is just a few miles away in Batavia, where you’ll find a Walmart, Kmart, Sears, Target and Penney’s. For groceries, Batavia has a Top’s Friendly Market and the town of LeRoy, just east of Stafford, also has a Top’s. Four school districts cover the town of Stafford; depending on where they live, residents are part of the Batavia City School District, the LeRoy Central School District, the Byron-Bergen Central School District, or the Pavilion Central School District.
