The Goodberry spell in the game is not the same as the 5e spell. In the game a goodberry only provides healing not food. I think in game a goodberry should be equivalent to 1 ration.

Not quite.

From the description of Goodbery:

Eating a berry restores 1 hit point, and the berry provides enough nourishment to sustain a creature for one day.

I got stuck with my level 4 party, unable to complete a long rest because I ran out of rations in Bone Keep.

I traveled all the way back to Caer Cyflen to find the general store has no rations for sale.

I'm not sure I like having to worry about eating in a game either. I don't remember any D&D crpg's that had this feature. The game should at least let you hunt for food at your current location...but still I don't see how this makes the game any more fun.

Agreed, the ration issue is a major roadblock without a ranger.  Started for Dark Castle with 30+ rations, and by the time I arrived was under 10.  Fought several groups, then had to return as those 10 rations MIGHT get me back to town. Resting certainly would not. Made it back with 1 ration to spare, but now I can't return as town does not restock, and one ration isn't going to get me anywhere - much less support several "days" worth of clearing with a long rest here and there, and then another return trip. Other than a weapon here and there, random encounters haven't dropped anything of note, including rations.

Does Gorims Emporium stop restocking rations after you get to Bone Keep?

I've hand no problems because I just travel fast from Caer Lem and the city a bunch of times, and buy 10 rations every time. Now It would be annoying if I was doing that just to get rations, but my main goal was to level my characters with random encounters.

You don't really need rations to travel, which actually i find it a flaw.
I did several back and forth with no rations, nothing bad happens.

I built my party before I realized Solasta was a world on the brink of starvation.  This is a game design flaw that I hope will be fixed soon.
