Voted Best New England Restaurant, Best Service, and Most Romantic Restaurant by Valley Advocate, Chandler's Restaurant bursts with a spectacular array of traditional New England surf ‘n’ turf. Dinner diners can ease into a seasonal menu with the local-goat-cheese plate, featuring toasty doubloons of crostini, augmented with caramel apple, fruit preserve, and walnut pesto ($12). Culinary artists bind a variety of locally sourced produce and meats into miraculous entree options, which include traditional New England bouillabaisse ($30), a miniature ocean of tomato, saffron, and butter broth, dotted with islands of clams and mussels, and lapping at a golden garlic-toast shore, where a fresh fillet of fish basks, slathered in lobster aioli. Lunching mouths can discuss the benefits of collecting cocktail umbrellas while tasting the menu's BBC beer-battered fish ‘n’ chips ($14.50) or an armada of sandwiches, from the Pilgrim, a mound of roast turkey breast festooned with sage dressing and cranberry sauce ($9), to the house-smoked pastrami reuben ($10.50).

On more than 100 acres of land, Amherst Nurseries grows a vast forest of trees and shrubs, helping to make customers' green thumbs even greener. The retail store boasts a friendly staff that helps customers select the right plants for their yards. Maples, ashes, honey locusts, and other shade trees provide homes for birds' nests and dolls' treehouses ($330 for a 15- to 20-ft. tree), and the colorful foliage of plums, cherries, crab apples, and other flowering trees gives yards an instant makeover in preparation for tree prom season ($260 for a 10- to 15-ft. tree). On the farm, Amherst's tree tenders minimize pesticide use and partner with UMass researchers to test new soil-conservation technologies. Each seedling is raised on sunlight, fresh air, and occasional discipline, growing into a sturdy young tree that showcases a one-year guarantee and an excellent moral compass.

With more than 26 years of acquired knitting knowledge, the professional yarn darners at Northampton Wools teach novice knitters how to fasten fibers famously. Shorn-sheep sewers can begin by browsing Northampton's bounty of natural knitting necessities. Once digits are dressed with the proper tools, they can follow the lead of noted knitter Linda Daniels and her staff of six, who together introduce basic techniques in the three-hour workshop. During this one-day course, students learn to cast on, knit, purl, and taunt cats. More well-versed weavers might want to partake in a six-week knitting course (meeting once a week for two hours), in which students are organized according to their stitching skill set and sense of gravity.
