SUMMERTIME IN THE BERKSHIRES @

An heirloom is a piece of heritage, tradition, pride. To sow an heirloom is to cultivate a connection with the way food used to be grown; the way things used to be made. It’s more than simple nostalgia. It’s a statement, a proclamation, an affinity for what is imperfect, beautiful, and totally unique. An heirloom typically requires more time and attention to grow, harvest and create. Every extra moment fulfills a purpose so every flavor, color and texture are richer for it. All of the makers below represent the concept of heirloom to us – and we’re so excited to share it with you.

Join us in valuing what we make and grow.

HOW TO GET HERE

We are located at 508 State Road in North Adams, along Route 2 at Protection Avenue.

Our newly renovated Weave Shed is located within a 240,000 sf textile mill campus currently undergoing an exciting restoration. To learn about the many ways you can get to HEIRLOOM, as well as all the wonderful nearby attractions that await you, click here.
