We want to send a big thank you to all of our loyal customers who shop online with us or in our market. Without your support we obviously would not be here.

A lot has changed in the food industry within the last five years. Just last week Whole Foods market was purchased by Amazon.  There's no doubt Amazon will be delivering Whole Foods groceries to people's doors and only time will tell how that will affect us. Stay tuned for some newsletter articles exploring this topic.

This past Sunday the Berkshire Eagle featured us in a meal kit delivery service article which discussed how these national companies have affected small businesses such as ours.

As consumers we all get to vote for the food we want to support with our purchases. When you shop with Berkshire Organics you're not only supporting a small, local, independent market but you're supporting over 100 local farms and food businesses.We are extremely grateful to our local community for their support in truly shopping locally.

It’s time to get better acquainted with favas! An ancient member of the pea family, they have a nutty taste and buttery texture all their own.

Grill up this delicious salad for your next summer BBQ or picnic!

Delicious as is or serve mixed into your favorite pasta dish or on the side of meat/fish.  It also pairs well with mashed potatoes.
There's no use in trying to hide it, so I'm just gonna go ahead and lay it on you from the start. I get a little excited about garlic scapes  and here's why...

Thank you for supporting a small, locally owned business, our local farms and local food artisans.
