The natural beauty of Glynwood Farm is enhanced by its variety of gardens. The flower beds, rock gardens, and vegetable plots also play their part in modeling practices that are environmentally sustainable and economically viable—and in some important instances, also innovative and experimental.
Sustainable agriculture at Glynwood begins with care of the soil, which we work to preserve and replenish by rotating crops in our gardens, by using our own composted manure, and by planting nitrogen-fixing crops. We also work to conserve our native plant communities.
Sustainable agriculture at Glynwood also means minimizing energy use and reducing our carbon footprint. From innovations to heat our greenhouse and refrigerate our produce storage, we demonstrate several practices that save energy and money.
At Glynwood, our commitment to sustainable agriculture includes use of natural farm products. We are looking forward to our vegetable operation being Certified Naturally Grown.
Most of Glynwood’s garden produce is sold through our Community Supported Agriculture program (CSA). The 50 member households of our CSA subscribe to a 20-week distribution season, during which they enjoy more than 30 different types of vegetables, as well as Glynwood’s flowers, eggs, and pasture-fed chickens.
