In 2013, Berkshire Grown launched the mentorship program with eight partnerships between experienced farmers and “beginning farmers”, those with less than 10 consecutive years of farming experience.  These relationships provide newer farmers with the advice and support of a mentor who has been in their shoes and affords seasoned farmers the opportunity to share the knowledge, experience, skills, perspectives, and relationships that they have developed over the course of their farming careers.  Together, they strengthen the social fabric, expand the knowledge base, and improve the quality of agriculture in our region.

If you are a farmer interested in finding a mentor or becoming a mentor, please email
