A Berkshire Winter Evening

It is still outside. The snow has stopped. Night

hasn't quite fallen and the air is so clean it hurts 

to breathe it, accustomed as I am to dirty air.

In all the world there is nothing as wonderful to me as

poking my head out the door on a Berkshire 

winter evening and thinking the world elsewhere is missing

something tremendous. (And thankful I am that they're not all here)

BERKSHIRE PRESERVES has had a very successful year thanks to you, 

our devoted customers. I wish you all a healthy and sweet New Year. 

See you in 2013.

When Ordering Berkshire Preserves

When placing an order, please contact me first to check inventory. Our production always depends on seasonal availability of the fruits we use. And, frankly, I can't keep up with demand, production AND keeping this blog up to date. So, rather than your placing an order that cannot be filled, I would welcome your direct contact with me.

You can reach me at or by phone at 413-528-2824.
