The dinner is by reservation only, and tickets are available for $65 (for members) and $75 (for non-members). Tickets tend to sell out quite quickly, so, it is encouraged that those interested should call 413-528-0041 for availability.

Berkshire Grown is an organization that envisions a community where healthy farms define the open landscape, where a wide diversity of fresh, seasonal food and flowers continue to be readily available to everyone, and where agricultural bounty is celebrated by buying from neighboring family farms and savoring their distinctive Berkshire harvest.
