Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming

The Glynwood Center for Regional Food and Farming is a non-profit organization serving food and farming changemakers from New York’s Hudson Valley and beyond. We advance local food production here in our region, as well as educate a national audience about efforts to regionalize food and agriculture. We are inspired by, and contribute to, aligned work far beyond the borders of the Hudson Valley. Guided by the highest standards of ecosystem, soil, animal and community well-being, we promote regenerative agriculture in service of our natural environment, local economies and human health.

Glynwood assists landowners and farmland seekers with advice on farmland leasing options, evaluation of potential farm properties and supporting connections between farmers and landowners to prepare for successful land matches. We advise landowners on preparing their land for appropriate agriculture activities and the search for management ready farmers. Glynwood is able to assist with land assessment through use of remote technologies and by site visits, as necessary. Through our organization's considerable network we are able to connect farmers and landowners with contacts for assistance with legal, financial and business assistance.
