Berkshire Agricultural Ventures in March Issue of BTAC

Berkshire Agricultural Ventures Executive Director, Cynthia Pansing, featured as a Guest Columnist in the March issue of Berkshire Trade and Commerce Monthly

“With current economic and consumer trends, the food and farming sector remains an area of continued high growth. It is also an important investment arena not only for those who focus on the traditional markers of economic development – dollars, jobs and wages – but also for those who are more interested in the creation of social value and patient capital as the pathway to long-term and sustained growth, as we are with Berkshire Agricultural Ventures.
There are numerous promising farms and food businesses here in the Berkshires that demonstrate the power of an entrepreneurial idea translated into a business venture – and, in some cases, are addressing fundamental infrastructure needs of the regional food sector.” – Cynthia Pansing, BAV Executive Director
