Map Tips

Tips for using the Berkshire Grown interactive farm map to find fresh, locally grown farm products in the Berkshires

Using keyword search and category menu:

  • Keyword search: type a product, town or city, farm name, etc. to search our database
  • “All in Season” has a drop down menu: select from a list of farm fresh products
  • “Pick-Your-Own” has a drop down menu in season
  • “All members” lists all Berkshire Grown members in our database
  • “Farms”  lists Berkshire Grown member farms
  • “Farm Stands” lists Berkshire Grown member local farm stands but there are glitches so be patient with this list
  • “Pick Your Own (PYO)” lists members who offer “pick-your-own” produce opportunities
  • “CSAs” lists Berkshire Grown Community Supported Agriculture farms, these are farms that you can join, click on each farms’ websites because each farm has its own cost, registration deadlines, etcetera.  Some have early sign up in the fall, and some sell out so we urge you to call early on.
  • “Dining” lists Berkshire Grown member restaurants
