Glynwood’s Harvest Awards

Now in its 11th year, Glynwood’s Harvest Award celebrates farmers, organizations and businesses that demonstrate innovation and leadership in support of sustainable agriculture and regional food systems. Glynwood created the Harvest Award in 2003 to highlight the positive outcomes that result when a regional food system is revitalized and to inspire others to take action within their own communities.

The Harvest Awards have recognized numerous pioneers in the field of sustainable food and farming across the country. In the past two years, the award program has focused on exemplary agricultural enterprises in the Hudson Valley.
