One of our favorite things to do when we go up to the Berkshires is visit the local farms. We always stop by a maple syrup farm and a goat cheese farm to load up on farm fresh goodies. The maple syrup farm is a true blast from the past. The farmer leaves his big sugaring house unlocked, with maple syrup lining the sides. He has a price list up, and a cash box on the counter. You are free to take your maple syrup, make your own change, and be on your way without ever seeing the farmer! It is refreshing to see that kind of trust still exist somewhere.
