As part of Amherst and its surrounding communities, 30Boltwood has the distinct advantage of being able to provide each of our guests with the freshest, highest quality ingredients made available to us on any given day through our local farming community. From the beginning, our commitment to supporting local has provided us the great fortune of not only being able to capitalize on the high quality of products that surround us, it has also allowed us to forge many great relationships with the remarkable farmers who put forth so much hard work and love into each and every harvest.

Chef John Piskor and his team, in turn, pay their respects to these individuals through a very simple approach to each plate; get out of the way and allow the ingredients to be the star through careful preparation and presentation.

We will forever remain dedicated to sourcing and supporting local farmers and purveyors as well as sourcing animals that are raised humanely and ethically. 30Boltwood would like to pay tribute and thank those tireless and dedicated individuals who assist us every day in our commitment while at the same time allowing us to provide our guest the very best culinary experience.


BerkShore personally curates a daily selection of native, seasonal, sustainable, and premium seafood based on freshness, harvest method, and harvest location. Close to 100% of their products are caught one day prior to delivery, and all of their fin-fish is filleted hours before delivering to Inn on Boltwood.
