Berkshire Grown – Preserving the Harvest

Serene Mastrianni and Carole Murko hosted Julie Michaels, Chairman of the Board of Berkshire Grown and Lisa Dachinger, farmer and owner of River Valley Farm, a CSA (community supported agriculture). We are so lucky to live in a community that helps bring farmers and restaurants together and where local farmers offer shares in their farm produce.  It’s important to knowing where your food is grown, know your farmers and keeping it local.  Thank you Berkshire Grown for providing a resource for farmers, people and restaurants.
