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