Kat Hand, co-founder of the Berkshire Cider Project, reflects on the first four years of building this small business in the Berkshires, what she has learned about working with local farms and farmers, and how she sees sustainability as an increasingly critical part of the cidery’s growth.

Hand has a background that spans the non-profit and private sector, with roles in corporate sustainability, marketing and investor relations. She will discuss how these experiences have helped to shape many key decisions in the growth of Berkshire Cider Project, and how she believes small businesses can be powerful forces for good in the world.

Hand lives in Williamstown with her husband, co-founder, head cidermaker and swiss army knife at Berkshire Cider Project.

Log Lunch — the Center for Environmental Studies (CES) at Williams College presents a locally-grown veggie lunch and environmental talk every Friday since 1972. Weekly lunches and conversation are open to the community, and all are welcome. Lunch is $3 cash at the door (to help with the soup and sandwiches), and you’ll need to save your space ahead, so they know how much to make.

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
