Our August Recipe: Nectarine Caprese

In-season nectarines add an amazing sweetness to the traditional Caprese here. Burrata has a creamy and runny center, so nestle the whole balls into the fruit and break open just as you serve the salad. Serves 4 as a side, or 2 as a main • 1 ½ pounds (3-4) ripe nectarines, sliced into wedges • ¾ pounds (about 2 medium) ripe tomatoes, sliced into wedges • 8 ounces burrata • ¼ teaspoon salt • Balsamic vinegar • Olive oil • Handful of fresh basil leaves, torn or cut into ribbons • Freshly ground pepper • Optional: coarse sea salt, such as Maldon • Bread, for serving

Gently combine the nectarines and tomatoes in a large serving bowl. Nestle the burrata into the fruit, and sprinkle with the salt. Drizzle generously with balsamic, then repeat with the olive oil. Top with basil, pepper, and coarse salt, if using. Serve with fresh bread to mop up the juices.

The three pillars of Tableaux Wealth’s approach: interpret the financial jargon for you, educate on what it will mean specifically for you and adapt your plan to your life as it changes.

Picture this: You and Tableaux Wealth working together on your financial future New Stockbridge firm specializes in untangling all the Wall Street jargon, investments By Noah hoffeNBerg Eagle sponsored content editor STOCKBRIDGE — A picture is

worth a thousand words, they say. Matthew Chester, founder of Tableaux Wealth, a new financial services firm in South County, wants you to picture your financial present and your financial future. Now, picture him and his client services director taking you there on the best route possible. Chester, 40, is an investment adviser who brings his corporate and tax law degree to the business, as well as the strength of TCWP LLC, his back-office partner for compliance, accounting, payroll, etc., and Fidelity, where his clients’ portfolios are stored and tended to. Opening in May, the firm offers financial planning, investment management, tax strategies, estate and trust advising services. After spending the past eight years in Berkshire branches of a global financial firm, Chester says the pandemic spurred him to assess his life and his work, and where he wanted to be. “Haven’t we really had to determine and accept what’s out of our control? The pandemic, lockdown, how the virus changes. All these things we can’t really control,” says Chester, a former employee adviser and senior vice president with RBC Wealth Management. “I was reaching a point where I knew, if I wanted to develop the vision I had, I needed more control over the business, over the things that affect clients.” ‘THIS BUSINESS IS ABOUT CLIENTS’ The name Tableaux stemmed from a multipronged idea that Chester had: a firm that wasn’t about him, his name or ge-

ography. “This business is about clients, how well they’re taken care of, how well we steward their financial resources over time; and help them achieve their goals,” says Chester. Chester wanted a name for the business that was simple and illustrative, just like the route he takes with clients. “Tableaux is the idea that everybody has a different financial picture,” he notes. “And then, of course, life changes. Things happen, babies are born, people die, people inherit money, lose a job, gain a job. Your financial plan has to change, as well. It is never static. We always have to know where you’re at, and adapt over time.”

LIKE A SERIES OF PAINTINGS The concept that Tableaux imparts to clients is that, like a series of paintings or pictures depicting someone’s life over time, the firm will help you see and understand where you are now financially, where you want to go and how to get there. “And sometimes, I help the client draw or create the picture if they don’t really know. Let’s ask the right questions, so we can sketch it out, and fill in all the colorful aspects that make it yours and not somebody else’s,” says Chester. The three pillars of his firm’s approach: interpret the financial jargon for you, educate on what it will mean specifically for you and adapt your plan to your life as it changes. “You make the decision, based on an understanding of the impact these things might have for you,” says Chester. AS MUCH INSIGHT AS YOU WANT A lot of Chester’s existing clients are folks who were

On behalf of his clients, Chester works as the quarterback with your financial plan, acting as the hub for your estate attorneys, other money managers, accountants and bookkeepers.

They need someone to sit down with them and explain what’s going on. They want to know enough to take more control over it,” says Chester. This is where he says his law degree comes in handy, more so even than contending with tax law or estate plans.

Only the most important Tableaux clients can land a meeting with the youngest member of the team, Chester’s daughter Zoe.

“What’s more important is how to communicate clearly and effectively to people. I don’t think anyone can trust their adviser unless they can describe very tough concepts in a simple way,” says Chester. “If I can communicate to you what’s going to be happening in this process, what the options are, then you can make the decision that makes the most sense for you.” A relationship with Tableaux means that complicated topics can be discussed with an objective partner. “They know that I care about protecting ideas and goals, and they can bounce ideas off me in a way that they couldn’t necessarily do with their husband or wife,” he says.

BE ARMED WITH INFORMATION If you need to attend complicated financial meetings, say with an accountant or attorney, Tableaux will arm you with understanding and information before you go in. “So when you get into the meeting, you’re already prepped in your head. It’s not the kind of situation

where you want to leave not understanding what was just said,” says Chester. “Sometimes, I’m in on those conversations to go over it after the fact. They can have me sit in on a meeting, take notes, and we can come back to it for review, so we’re all on the same page.” On behalf of his clients, Chester works as the quarterback with your financial plan, acting as the hub for your estate attorneys, other money managers, accountants and bookkeepers. He calls his investment management process a “top-down investment approach,” which looks at the macro, like the markets, inflation and interest rates, versus the micro, such as individual stocks and bonds. “If you start from the bottom, you focus on things that don’t really matter, when all is said and done, for your financial picture, and sometimes you’re taking too much risk to just focus on individual stocks,” notes Chester, who says he does advise on them for clients who have such positions in their portfolios.

SMALL FIRM IS FREE FROM BUREAUCRACY Chester started Tableaux because he knew that a firm shouldn’t dictate what wealth means to you or be bogged down with bureaucracy and inane procedures. At other firms, client relationships can suffer for any number of reasons: because they’re just not nimble enough to use the best technology for video conferencing or scheduling; they lack appropriate amounts of research resources; or they don’t communicate easily by modern means, like email newsletters. Tableaux is, by design, fleet of foot, with Chester and his client relations director, Shelley Wojtkowski, working at the speed of wifi from his home office on Church Street and her home office in Pittsfield. If you have questions about your own future and want to talk with someone who’s invested in you, give Chester a call at Tableaux Wealth, and he’ll happily talk you through it.

271 MAIN STREET, DOWNTOWN GREAT BARRINGTON SPONSORED CONTENT

His vision/your one-stop shop A Q&A with Chris Weld, founder of The Pass, on his seed-to-sale cannabis business in the 413 By Noah hoffeNBerg SHEFFIELD —There’s something Chris Weld wants you to know: He’s not just passing through. You’ll likely recognize the Sheffield resident, as he’s the man behind Berkshire Mountain Distillers Inc. and now The Pass, a distinct recreational cannabis dispensary on North Main Street that opened last year. About 15 years ago, Weld left a career in emergency medicine in California, and bought a dilapidated apple farm in town, put down roots and started his distillery. What’s followed is nothing short of the revitalization of a sleepy Berkshires town. On top of the jobs and tax revenue generated by Weld’s other venture, his latest — The Pass — already has grown from an initial staff of six to several dozen. And The Pass is growing in capacity, expanding its production abilities with a new 43,000-square-foot grow site being built in Ashley Falls. That will bring another 25 jobs to the area, says Weld. The positive ripple effects on the town are evident, Weld notes. Now one of the largest employers in Sheffield, Weld believes other businesses are feeling the bump in foot traffic. The Pass founder sat down with The Eagle recently to offer a glimpse behind the curtain at his singular dispensary, to talk about how its seed-tosale ops are a benefit to the consumer, “and why we do what we do, why we love doing what we do and where we are headed.” Some of that interview follows:

did you end up Q How starting a recreational

cannabis dispensary? CW: I love the smell of the plant. I love working with the plant. I love the science and the genetics of it. One of the reasons I dove in, is with my medical background, I felt there was an opportunity to educate the populace on cannabis and demystify it a bit. Certainly there was a business motivation to it, and I felt like there was an opportunity to really help out in the town. In this industry, the host community receives 3 percent of our revenue. I had early hopes of bringing some economic viability to Sheffield, which fortunately has come to fruition. were the chalQ What lenges in opening The

Pass during the pandemic? CW: I think Massachusetts has done many things very well. But it’s inherently an incredibly complex industry, especially with the regulations that are required at this point in time. The bureaucracy and the red tape was the hardest part for us, and COVID certainly delayed us and has affected us significantly in terms of how we can staff and how many people we can have in the room. And, we have had growing pains. We started with six

employees a year ago, and are close to 70 now. Today, the challenge is still finding good help in the Berkshires and jumping through the hoops in the state. do you love most Q What about your team?

CW: We’ve vetted and hired an amazing, diverse group of people. It’s certainly one of the things that helps us stand out. We have a bunch of Berkshire locals but we also have plenty of people who have relocated to the area and made it their home. It brings a much-needed demographic to the Berkshires, especially South County, where most of our staff is 25 to 35, a mix of young women and men. We have people coming from the catering world, coming from typical food service roles, where they wouldn’t have a job otherwise. It’s a very fun environment, as well, where we have everything on-site, so a retail staffer isn’t only stuck to interacting with retail people. They interact with cultivators and extraction engineers over coffee and water in the breakroom. If offers cross-utilization of employees, too. a younger staff Q With working in a town and

region that skew older, how’s the connection going between your employees and their customers? CW: We get a lot of 80-year-olds who don’t know anything about cannabis, other than they heard “that this cream really works” or some horror stories about an edible. Our staff really approaches patrons with patience and with a focus on education and empathy. It’s neat to watch the dialogues that go back and forth. These people come in, they’re just cannabis curious, and we have a wonderful staff that’s very approachable and kind, which is nice to see and experience.

Q

What makes The Pass stand out from other dispensaries? CW: The fact that we are doing all in-store shopping, meaning people are entering the store to get products. We’re not doing an outside tent. We have expedited preordering as well as walk-in ordering, so you can just hop off of Route 7 without having to do any planning. One of the great things about our store is that we’ve prepacked most of our stuff in common denominations, and that allows us to spend more time on education with customers, and customers can get in and out more quickly. You don’t have to wait for it to be weighed at the counter. Not many cannabis groups are vertically integrated like us. integrated? Q Vertically What does that mean?

You don’t have to wait for it to be weighed at the counter. Not many cannabis groups are vertically integrated like us. integrated? Q Vertically What does that mean?

CW: Meaning not many groups are like us, growing, packaging, processing cannabis and having a retail store. Being vertical, we do everything on-site. When we’re harvesting the indoor grow, people can smell it in the store while checking out. There’s also a chain of product quality control, so we know exactly what genetics we’ll have, we’ll know what that plant has seen and what’s been done to it. We’ll be able to curate our genetics, and curate our cultivars, and we can keep taking plants that produce the best. It makes for a fantastic selection. This is a very savvy consumer group, much like craft beer or wine consumers. They know what they like, they’re looking for a certain terpene profile, a certain cannabinoid, so we can sort of guide and grow those needs. That whole chain of command and quality control that goes from seed to sale, benefits the consumer.

Q

How might the average customer experience this vertical integration, other than The Pass having lively selection? CW: There’s a bevy of cannabis stores out there that have to source everything that they have. Having total control of the process, we can hold some product back and allocate accordingly, so we never run out or have a diminished array of products. The vertical busi-

It kind of insulates us a bit from the inconsistencies of supply throughout the state. even though Q And you’re vertical and

grow your own, you still carry other brands? CW: We’ve curated a great selection in the store from partners that we have great synergy with, and we’re able to do business with others who aren’t in Berkshire shops. We made it a point to carry other products, because we aren’t too overconfident to say that we’re going to make everything the best, and be the only ones that make it. We have a well-rounded menu by having partner companies that we work with, by having their products on our menu and our product on theirs. kind of inforQ What mation goes into de-

ciding what strains or products to carry? CW: One example: We had a lot of people looking for gummies that had sleep aids added to them, as well as other supplements. We developed a Knockout Gummy, which is our fruit punch gummy with melatonin added to it. We want to sell products our customers will like. We’ve allowed the people who run the store and are there day to day to have input and be heard. It

allows us to be nimble and pivot in product creation, based on feedback from customers and staff. If we find that customers are looking for a particular product, we can make that product pretty quickly in house and get it onto a shelf in about two months. There’s no guarantee feedback goes anywhere with other cannabis companies. With us, it goes directly to the right people. kind of experiQ What ence can visitors of

The Pass expect? CW: One of the beautiful things about our shop is it being spacious, open and airy. We have a lot of wall space that we use like a gallery for local artists every month. There’s also a permanent mural that takes up half the building. It’s beautiful and calming. On weekends, we do have a line for a couple minutes, so at least there’s something beautiful to look at. We have largeand small-format menus to browse while you’re in line or at the counter. There are display cases, with examples of products with our partner companies, as well as examples of cannabis accessories. And just this month, we started to release Pass merchandise. T-shirts, enamel pins, hats and bandanas, and we’re going to be doing merch drops seasonally. your team Q And is maintaining a

healthy and safe space? CW: Everything is social-

ly distanced, with markers on the floor. We limited the number of people in the shop, with the overflow in a line on the patio. And we take a lot of time to make sure the shop is sanitized throughout the day to maintain the cleanliness. There’s this ease of access across the board. It’s not just the large parking area or a covered porch. There’s an emotional ease of access. A lot of people are influenced by the stigma surrounding cannabis. It’s rapidly falling, but here it just melts away. Apprehension just drifts off, and people get wrapped up in the experience and come out knowing a bit more about cannabis and how it might help them.

Rudd Pond

Harlem Valley Rail Trail

The Rudd Pond area of Taconic State Park is located in Millerton, NY along the Taconic Mountain Range in northeastern Dutchess County. The park shares a border with Massachusetts and Connecticut.

Harlem Valley Rail Trail is a beautiful paved wooded pathway along the former New York & Harlem Railroad corridor that is accessible to users of many types and abilities.

Consisting of more then 6,000 acres of forested land with an extensive trail system that provides spectacular views of the Taconic, Berkshire and Catskill Mountain Ranges and the Hudson Valley. Rudd Pond is a 64 acre lake that offers swimming, fishing, rowboat, canoe, kayak and paddle boat rentals.

Overall, the trail is bucolic and easygoing throughout. The asphalt pavement is well maintained and mostly flat. Scenery is generally wooded, though the path passes through a variety of landscapes, including wetlands, creeks, some open grasslands, tree farms, and farmland.

Besides camping and hiking other popular activities include swimming, picnicking, boating on Rudd Pond, bicycling and roller blading on the rail trail, fishing and hunting.

Sponsored by:

The trail features numerous access points, mileposts, signage, and benches. In Millerton, access to the trail is near the historical one-room schoolhouse on Route 44 (Main Street). * Source: facebook.com/village-of-millerton; newyorkstateparks.reserveamerica.com and www.traillink.com
