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.
