Berkshire Berries® owned and operated by Mary and David Graves, is located in Becket, Massachusetts--a rural community noted for its lush wooded hillsides and cool summers.

In 1978, when Mary and David produced their original three jams and jellies, they used native blueberries from their woods and raspberries and strawberries from their own backyard. Even though they have since expanded their line, they still hand-pick all of the fruits from their bushes and plants, supplementing supplies from local farms. And the 100% maple syrup they produce in their small sugar shack, comes only from Berkshire maples. Click here for details.)

In the beginning, Mary and David sold their items from an old surrey placed on their front lawn. Built by David's great-grandfather in the 1850's, the surrey still is used as the Berkshire Berries® logo even though it now has been retired from regular display service.

You've seen them in The New York Times

Despite the recent growth of the Berkshire Berries® line, the Graveses still make all of their jams and jellies in small batches using Mary's own recipes. The only difference is that they now often enlist the help of their children-- Shawn, Heather and Jeffrey-- to keep up with the demand.

Today, Berkshire Berries® jams and jellies are for sale not only at the family country store and gift shop on Route 20 in Becket, but also in other retail stores and specialty shops throughout the Berkshire region and Massachusetts. The products are also available at farmers' markets in New York City, Boston and Cambridge--as well as by mail order.
