Farming at Glynwood

We practice regenerative farming and provide a training ground for farm apprentices, while providing fresh, locally-grown food to our community.

The Glynwood site in Cold Spring is our opportunity to experience first-hand the prosperities and the challenges of farming in the Hudson Valley. Our regenerative and locally appropriate agricultural practices rebuild soil fertility and the health of our pastures to produce nutritional food for our local community. Our farm serves as a test bed for apprentice farmers and provides the means for developing and implementing innovative methodologies.

As part of their training, our apprentices help grow the food we sell to our CSA members, at our farm store and through our online market. Our vegetables are USDA Certified Organic, the diets of our layers, meat birds and pigs are supplemented with non-GMO feed, and our cattle are strictly grass-fed and grass-finished. We are Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) for the rearing of our cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and layer hens. Subsidized CSA shares are available through our local food pantry and we accept SNAP.
