Steffen Hyder joined the Glynwood team in late September as Associate Director of Buildings, Infrastructure and Grounds. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Steffen is a decades-long resident of the Hudson Valley. Having originally come to study art and history at Bard College, he fell in love with the region for its distinct terroir and ecological character. Steffen has worked as an archaeologist, shepherd, historic preservationist, stonemason and woodworker, and has a deep background in the building trades.
Excited to find a role that feels like such a perfect fit, Steffen brings to Glynwood a lifelong interest in sustainable farming, biodiversity, and the power of community. He is looking forward to working with our team to make the property ever more beautiful and functional.
