Eat Locally Grown Food this Thanksgiving

….and everyday for that matter. It’s a simple but often overlooked pleasure – eating locally grown food. And the Berkshires has a very active farming community with Berkshire Grown (www.berkshiregrown.org) helping make the connections from farmer to restaurant and to consumer. Its “mapalicous” feature on their website shows where the farmers are and what’s fresh and available – what a resource!! And go directly to the farms by joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) and enjoy your share weekly from June through November. We had fun chatting with Berkshire Grown’s Executive Director about Berkshire Grown and with Laura Meister, owner/farmer of Farm Girl Farm – a CSA and produce supplier to local restaurants – INSPIRATIONAL. Laura stumped Serene with celeriac and kole rabi – we urge all to add some celeriac to your mashed potatoes – you won’t be disappointed!! Gobble Gobble!!

Guest(s) included: Barbara Zheutlin, Executive DIrector of Berkshire Grown and Laura Meister, owner/farmer of Farm Girl Farm.
