Welcome to 21st Century Family-Scale Agriculture
Located in the highland forests of the Berkshires, in Heath, MA, BSG Maple & Marine
Here at the Berkshire Sweet Gold Maple Farm, you can find the information you need to place an order for our forest farm's remarkable single-batch maple syrups; you can discover delicious recipes of all types, and you can check out the farm's direct market schedule. More than that, you can learn about the values and commitments that go into making each bottle of syrup.
Our aim is to build strong connections between the forest, harvester, and customer. In the big picture, we want to help protect wild places and the traditional or local knowledge systems that are integral to long term environmental stewardship. To us, there are few more revealing ways to study the arc of civilization and the interlinked relationships between people and the environment than through foods and their pathways. As farmer/poet Wendell Berry wrote:
"eating takes place inescapably in the world...[it is] inescapably an agricultural act, and how we eat determines, to a considerable extent, how the world is used."
Thank you for visiting the farm website. We invite you to take a moment to check out the Island Reach portal
