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 ( 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.
