Berkshire Agricultural Ventures
Having launched in May 2017 as an independent nonprofit organization, Berkshire Agricultural Ventures envisions a local and regional food economy where farms and food businesses are viable and thrive, and all residents have access to fresh and healthy local food. Our mission is to provide food and farm entrepreneurs with the tools they need to create, innovate and grow their businesses, and secure key resources to help them bring more healthy food from farm to table.
We work to achieve this mission from the ground up by providing technical assistance and financing to farms and food businesses that enable them to grow and/or scale up. We also strategically identify and support key regional infrastructure projects such as food distribution hubs and processing facilities that are integral to a resilient food economy.
