About

Glynwood Farm is a program of the agricultural non-profit, Glynwood.  The Farm expresses Glynwood's mission by testing, innovating, and demonstrating sustainable agricultural practices, while also growing food for our community.  The Farm also has a key educational role in preparing apprentice farmers to become the next generation of practitioners of sustainable agriculture in the Northeast.  

Located in the Hudson Highlands a few miles east of Cold Spring, New York, Glynwood Farm is set on 225 acres of steeply sloping and rocky land – topography that is typical of much of the Northeast.  Though far from ideal farmland, the site was first farmed as early as the mid-1700s and in the 19th century supplied dairy to the U.S. Military Academy at West Point.

Glynwood Farm is a carefully conceived and managed mixed-use operation, featuring pasture-raised livestock and 6.5 acres of Certified Naturally Grown vegetable crops.  We distribute our vegetable produce primarily through our 130-member CSA.  Our beef, pork, lamb, goat, poultry, and eggs are primarily sold directly to consumers.  We also sell to local restaurants, a local natural foods market, and we donate food to local schools and community food banks.  

Like many small and mid-size farms in the Hudson Valley and greater Northeast region, Glynwood’s land was not actively farmed for many years, resulting in soils and pastures that need revitalizing.  This, along with topography comparable to other farms in the region, makes it an important setting for modeling and experimenting with the environmentally sustainable practices we advocate.  

Our farm is currently engaged in long-term demonstration projects to: 

  • Maximize healthy microorganisms and balance soil fertility in our gardens and pastures via biological farm management practices.
  • Increase the fertility of our pastures.
  • Reclaim and manage pastures by using herds of goats to eat down invasive shrubs.


About Products & Animals

At Glynwood, we raise cattle, sheep, goats, pigs, broilers, and egg layers. All of Glynwood's animals are pasture-raised. Our egg-laying chickens, meat birds and pigs are fed exclusively Certified Organic feed, and our cattle are strictly grass-fed and grass-finished, meaning they never eat grain. In addition, Glynwood is Animal Welfare Approved for our cows, pigs, goats and sheep, demonstrating our commitment to the highest standards in humane animal husbandry.
