Farming at Glynwood

Glynwood’s Farm practices regenerative methodologies, documents business strategies and provides 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.

Our produce operation grows more than 40 varieties of USDA Certified Organic vegetables, sold primarily through our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) program. When members of our community buy a CSA share, they pledge their support upfront and provide funds that are needed to plan, seed and maintain our crops. While they share the risks of independent agriculture, they reap even greater rewards in the form of a bountiful harvest throughout the growing season. Produce is also available à la carte at our seasonal Farm Store

Our livestock operation consists of free-range laying hens and meat chickens, turkeys, cows, sheep, pigs and goats. All of our animals are pasture-raised. The diets of our egg-laying chickens, meat birds and pigs are supplemented with non-GMO feed, and our cattle are strictly grass-fed and grass-finished (grain-free). We are Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) for the rearing of our poultry, ruminants and pigs.
