The family farm stand has the best fresh vegetables. Best of all is the super sweet corn on the cob. Also blueberries and peaches. Tomatoes, potatoes, cukes, and squash. Also fresh flowers.

They had pigs, cows, goats, chicken and some other animals. There was a lot of stuff outdoors for the kids. My son loved the trucks and digging in the dirt. The cow ride was a lot of fun.

There's not a lot nearby, but plenty in nearby Pittsfield and in the Berkshire Mall. Just as examples.
