Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Fondo - Berkshires

October 02 - October 03 2021
Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA

Experience a distinctive culinary movement in the Berkshires - where farms and restaurants have created a world-class food culture by long ago committing to using local seasonal ingredients.

Home to 155 commercial farms, Berkshire County is the leading dairy producer in Massachusetts, and also hosts a diverse mix of fruit and vegetable growers and nurseries.

The Berkshires region has long been a pioneer in farm culture, from hosting the first agricultural fair in 1811, to more recently playing a central role in shaping farm-to-table culture in New England, with a strongly intertwined community of local farmers and restaurateurs.
