You can pick blueberries for a picnic … and lean back at a concert with Audra McDonald. You can settle in by a wood fire with a cup of melted sipping chocolate from a Corsican recipe. Or you can sit outdoors looking over the valley and raise a summer lager made with mint from the brewer’s garden. In the Berkshires, we can be laid back and experienced at the same time.

We have third-generation family farms, and we have Brooklyn or San Fransisco chefs looking for a closer tie to the land. And they work together. Sometimes the chefs are farmers, and the farmers are chefs.

Some have come from around the world, from Malaysia to Australia, and Some have been born here. They blend a sense of flavor and a sense of humor.

Looking for a popsicle of the day or purple potato chips? Grass-fed beef burger with blue cheese? Dumplings and shumai? Fresh bread or strawberries still warm from the sun? We can set you up.
