Glynwood's mission is to ensure the Hudson Valley is a region defined by food, where farming thrives. Our vision is a Hudson Valley defined by food: where farmers prosper, food entrepreneurs succeed, residents are nourished and visitors are inspired. While our operations are based mostly in this region, we believe our values serve a larger social purpose: Environmental resilience and conservation; human health; regional prosperity; and social and cultural vibrancy.
