Keep Farming is Glynwood’s community-based program, through which we empower communities to support their local farming. When a community chooses to engage in the program, we become involved in a hands-on process of helping them to identify their agricultural resources and the challenges they may face. We then help them think through options and create a strategy for the future.

Last year, we created a video about our mission to save farming. We were honored to have the participation of so many leaders in our local system (see the full list of interviewees after the jump).
Since its completion, the video has been touring with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, and has played in venues across the country, including California, West Virginia, Indiana, Massachusetts, Utah, Wisconsin – and of course, here at Glynwood.
Please watch and share it widely:
Welcome to The Glynwood View, where we’ll post news and views about sustainable agriculture and regional food systems. If you’re new to Glynwood, we are a not-for-profit organization located in the lower Hudson Valley — and our mission is to save farming.
It has been a most exciting year so far for our organization! We recently launched the Glynwood Institute for Sustainable Food & Farming – a “creative action tank” that develops and implements realistic solutions to critical issues within the food system. And just this month, we made historic strides by launching a next-generation modular, mobile slaughterhouse that will begin to solve the challenges faced by small and mid-size livestock farmers who often cannot getting their animals processed and to market. Called the Modular Harvest System™, it is the first of its kind in the country!
