Ioka Valley Farm - Hancock, Ma
Nestled among the Berkshire and Taconic Hills in the beautiful Hancock Valley is Ioka Valley Farm, established in 1936 when Robert and Dorothy Leab drove 13 head of cattle over Brodie Mountain from Lanesboro and settled them onto the property they named Ioka Valley from an Indian word meaning “beautiful”. Bob was noted for his belief in conservation and obtaining maximum crop yields. Through hard work and the latest in scientific advances, he made the farm, once labeled as a “poor farm” because of its wornout soil, a success.

Tunnel City Coffee - North Adams, Ma -
We are Tunnel City Coffee, a specialty coffee company roasting and operating three cafes in the northern Berkshires of western Massachusetts. Our story started 25 years ago when we began testing out roasting methods on a tiny home oven in Williamstown, MA. Since then, we've grown to three shops and a roasting facility in the historic Norad Mill of North Adams, MA. Tunnel City Coffee gets its name from the story of the Hoosac Tunnel, an important one that speaks to the resilience of those who laid the foundation for small manufacturing in the northern Berkshires. Their work and sacrifice built the place we call home, and we are more than grateful.Our mission at Tunnel City Coffee is to bring the specialty coffee experience to small towns like ours, and to those near and far who seek out specialty coffee and deserve to have the best outside their front door.
