Keep Our 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
  • Increasing community access to local food
  • Networking farmers and food buyers
  • Promoting locally-grown and produced food
  • Promoting economic development by focusing on the viability of the agricultural economy

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.

Berkshire Grown is proud to be part of the Massachusetts Coalition for Local Food and Farms working in all regions of Massachusetts to strengthen local agriculture and increase the amount of local food eaten by Massachusetts residents.
