GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management announced that they have opened an office in Great Barrington.
Now in our 20th year as a wealth management firm, Berkshire Money Management (BMM) have opened an office at the corner of Castle and Main Street right in the downtown.
"BMM has clients all over the country. Since the advent of the telephone, there's been no reason a financial advisor couldn't provide real-time service to a client residing anywhere from Tyringham to Timbuktu," said BMM founder and CEO, Allen Harris. "However, people often like to start their relationships in person. More and more people from South County have been braving the scenic 30-minute drive to our headquarters in Dalton. And they are still welcome to. But I wanted to do something for our current and future South County clients, so I built them something more convenient. This branch office is a ‘thank you' to them, and a convenience for new clients who prefer an advisor in their backyard."
In addition to having offices in South County, BMM has already begun expanding our community engagement efforts in Great Barrington and the surrounding towns as a lead sponsor for Berkshire Busk this past summer, as well as sponsoring the work of Construct, Inc., distributing back packs filled with school supplies to Southern Berkshire children, and other initiatives.
The office will have a soft opening on Dec. 11 during the Great Barrington Holiday stroll. The offices will be open and there will be treats and hot chocolate for visitors to enjoy. An official ribbon cutting will be announced early in 2022.

MDAR Commissioner Marks 'Green Friday' at Seekonk Tree Farm

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff

Seekonk Tree Farm was selected for the annual 'Green Friday' pronouncement. MDAR Commissioner John Lebeaux traveled to the family-owned farm to present Peter Sweet Jr. and family with the state proclamation encouraging state residents to buy their greenery local.

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — State Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner John Lebeaux traveled to Seekonk Tree Farm to celebrate "Green Friday" with the cutting of a Christmas tree.  The day is meant to encourage residents to source holiday plants from local farms.

Lebeaux presented the owners of the farm, the Sweet family, with a proclamation that marked Nov. 26 as Green Friday and outlined the many benefits of their line of work.

This includes adding $3.5 million to the state's economy each year with the sale of about 83,000 trees, providing a renewable source of energy when burned, producing biomass and removing carbon dioxide from the air, and providing stable refuge for wildlife.

"We try to rotate every year and it was the Berkshires turn this year," Lebeaux explained.

The farm has been in business since 1979, when Peter Alden Sweet Sr. married Carol Joan Wright. With the help of a $50,000 grant from MDAR, the family was able to build a gift shop/workshop that was completed about a year ago.
