Berkshire Agriculture Ventures, a Berkshires-based nonprofit dedicated to supporting local farmers and food entrepreneurs, is attempting to address the processing bottlenecks for livestock farmers in the Berkshires with its new Local Meat Processing Support Program. The short-term goal of the program is to increase processing capacity by 25 percent for existing USDA-inspected processors, which will help Berkshire farmers get more locally-raised meat to the community.


SPONSORED CONTENT: Lucky enough to be in the Berkshires this summer?

Go ahead, taste the difference local makes: Less time on the truck and more time in the field is enough to make everyone scream for local ice cream — All. Month. Long.
