Farm to Fork Fondo

Berkshires - Farm to Fork Fitness

September 30 - October 02, 2022 - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA

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

Our Farm to Fork Fitness Adventures are designed to accommodate all levels of bicyclists, from the beginner, to the avid enthusiast.

The Berkshires region is hilly, and our routes reflect this. The shorter routes have less hills, and the longer routes have more. Our Adventures are about the food and the farms, not the killer course, so you can hitch a ride to the top of the hill if that’s best for you. And for those who like a challenge in between farms, this location is a great choice.. 

Here’s a sampling of what to expect:

- Tour Hancock Shaker Village, a living history museum and working farm
- Enjoy a tasting of locally-made wines and pick pumpkins at Balderdash Cellars
- Pick apples and enjoy fresh cider donuts at Bartlett’s Orchard
- Participate in community supported agriculture and learn about no-till farming at Woven Roots Farm
- Pick up some native plants to bring home at Helia Native Nursery
- Swing by Bright Ideas Brewing on your way home to enjoy local craft beer
- Enjoy stunning views of peak fall foliage, and ride through beautiful farmland in the midst of the fall harvest and apple-picking season
