Keep Farmers Farming! 

Berkshire Grown supports and promotes local agriculture as a vital part of the Berkshire community, economy and landscape.

 

 

We do this by…

  • Advocating for farmers
  • Supporting good agricultural practices
  • Fostering Education and Outreach
  • Food accessibility for the community
  • Farm to table networking
  • Promoting locally grown and produced food

 

  • OUR VISION: Berkshire Grown is the “go to” network linking farmers and the Berkshire community. Through events, workshops, promotions, advocacy and education highlighting locally grown and produced food, Berkshire Grown helps to create a thriving local food economy.

 

Share the Bounty buys shares in local CSA farms, helping the farmers; then Berkshire Grown arranges to have that farm-fresh food delivered to a local food pantry, helping some of the many hungry families who live amongst us. Helping farmers + helping hungry families = the goal of Share the Bounty. Every dollar donated to Share the Bounty works two ways, it’s a win-win.
