Spring in the Berkshires

by Jamie on May 1, 2011

Spring Has Sprung!

It is starting to feel like spring here in the Berkshires!    Crocuses and daffodils – the perennial symbol of springtime–  are in full bloom here at Winthrop Estate.  Migratory birds are returning and we are awakening to the enchanting sounds of their morning chirping.

Planting Peas

Here at Winthrop our gardeners have planted the first crop of the season, and this year we will harvest green and red leaf lettuce, peas, spinach, kale, carrots, leaks, hungarian peppers, and plenty more.  This weekend, we are excited to be expanding our organic garden and are thrilled to be offering fresh, organic produce “farm to table” at Winthrop Estate.  Berkshire County is renowned for it’s farm to table philosophy and has played a leading role in it’s development.  Winthrop Estate is proud to be a part of this movement.  In addition to stocking our own kitchen with delicious, fresh produce, we supply local restaurants, such as Nudel, here in Lenox.
