Massachusetts’ culinary scene is robust – from comfort food to gourmet cuisine; from the freshest seafood known to the east coast to the authentic Italian aura of Boston’s North End; and notably, from farm-to-table.

This Memorial Day weekend in the Berkshires, the notion of “farm-to-table” will come tastefully alive – as Berkshire Grown’s Farmed + Foraged: A Weekend of Spring Flavors kicks off to support and promote the local agriculture scene, and to celebrate the first harvests of 2012 with a collection of spring flavors.

From Friday, May 25 through Monday, May 28, Farmed + Foraged will feature more than two-dozen restaurants throughout the region – specifically, restaurants that have made a commitment to sustainably sourcing wild and local edibles from area farms, forests, and fields. Participating restaurants will offer an array of prix fixe menus and à la carte selections to celebrate this farm-to-table dining event.

Menus will feature locally grown produce, Berkshire artisan cheeses, heritage breed meats, locally made bread and chocolate, wild edibles, and Berkshire-crafted beer and spirits.
