Filled To The Brim: The 15th Annual Berkshire Grown Harvest Supper

bg1 Jamie Larson reports from Great Barrington. It’s no secret that Berkshire County’s plate runneth over with local farms, food artisans, and restaurants of the highest quality, but it can still take your breath away to see it all represented in one place. And that’s exactly what happened on Monday, September 16, when Berkshire Grown held its 15th Annual Harvest Supper at Ski Butternut. The resort’s Upper Lodge hosted hundreds of hungry local visitors, who came to be made full by dozens of proud proprietors from across the region.
