    The Berkshire region is known for its cultural heritage plus world-famous resorts and a host of galleries and shopping options. We are a popular destination for visitors from Manhattan to Boston as well as other parts of the Northeast, Montreal and Europe.

    On par with our world-class arts culture is a mapfull-bodied food culture, one that has developed into a movement worthy of attention. Long before farm-to-table became a term used by many, Berkshire farms and restaurants were committed to the cause.

    The Berkshire-Hudson corridor boasts a distinctive culinary movement dedicated to the ever-changing bounty of the seasons and the spirit of collaboration that pervades a close-knit group of farmers, producers and chefs. Our farms supply many dedicated chefs and have become destinations unto themselves as cheese makers, distillers, beekeepers and maple syrup producers grow their fan base.

    Many who live in our foodshed already take advantage of the award-winning restaurants, food events and farm-to-table focus of the Berkshires.

    We feel this place-based food experience is ripe for exploration and invite you to come along with us.
