Berkshire Agriculture Ventures – BAV works to strengthen the regional agricultural economy by building the capacity for farm and food entrepreneurs to manage sustainable businesses.
We are focused on four program areas which present significant challenges to farm and food businesses in Berkshire, Litchfield, Dutchess and Columbia Counties:
- Access to productive and affordable farmland
- Access to business support and technical assistance
- Access to capital
- High Impact Infrastructure Projects
As a program of Berkshires Grown, our goal is to provide essential services which promote economic development for agricultural businesses. In doing so we contribute to the region’s health, economy, and environment while increasing and securing our Berkshire Foodshed.
