Farm Dinners

The spread of COVID-19 in our region is affecting many of our regularly scheduled programs.  Click here to read our current statement on our operations.   

Farm Dinners at Glynwood

Our iconic Farm Dinners are collaborations with mission-aligned chefs who serve meals that are emblematic of the Hudson Valley, using fresh ingredients from Glynwood and other regional farms and food producers. We host a ticketed event every month (September and December excluded). These intimate gatherings showcase culinary talent who are fully invested in seeing our region thrive, and who consider food to be an integral part of that effort. All ticket sales are final.

Glynwood Farm Dinners are a unique dining experience and, unlike traditional restaurant service, are often family style. Vegetarian meals are always available and we will do our best to accommodate dietary restrictions, but we are not a nut-free facility. Please keep in mind these are fixed menu events, not a la carte, thus, if you have strict food allergies please be aware that the chef may be unable to accommodate them. UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED: GLYNWOOD FARM DINNERS ARE BYOB EVENTS.

For our overnight guests, each room is unique and assigned based on availability. Information on accommodations will be emailed to you in the days prior to the event.

In order to help people participate regardless of ability to pay, Glynwood is proud to offer a "Pay what you can" model for all of our public programs. This is a tool for building economic justice, and it requires your active participation. If a sliding scale is implemented effectively, everyone pays a similar percentage of their income for the same products or services. 

Consider paying less on the scale if you…

  • are supporting children or have other dependents
  • have significant debt
  • have medical expenses not covered by insurance
  • have   tuition/educational expenses
  • receive public assistance
  • have immigration related expenses
  • are a senior citizen

Consider paying more on the scale if you…

  • own the home you live in
  • have investments, retirement accounts, inherited money
  • travel recreationally
  • have access to family money and resources in times of need
  • work part time, by choice
  • have a relatively high degree of earning power due to level of education (or gender and racial privilege, class background, etc.) Even if you are not currently exercising your earning power, we ask you to recognize this as a choice.

If you can, paying more than the listed amount for these programs helps support our work to transition to a healthier, more resilient and more just regional food system.

Please contact Glynwood’s Director of Events & Public Programs, Lauren Dellolio, at ldellolio@glynwood.org with any questions about our Farm Dinners or overnight farm stays.

This is an "on demand" event being offered from April 20-24
Glynwood Farm-to-Home Dinner Box

NEW! Missing our signature Farm Dinner series while doing your part to flatten the curve? Needing some inspiration (or education) for your family dinners at home? Look no further...Introducing the Glynwood Farm-to-Home Dinner Box. For this "on-demand" event we will be partnering with the amazingly talented and dedicated guest chefs who normally helm our farm dinners to bring you your very own Farm-to-Home Dinner in a Box. Our first chef partner for April is Chef Mark Margiotta, Director of Food and Beverage from the super-secret-invite-only-venue The Dutchess.

How it works:
1. Pre-order a Farm-to-Home Dinner Box between 4/7 and 4/15.
2. Eagerly await notice that your box is ready; maybe purchase a beer or cider pairing from our program partner Barber and Brew while you wait...details to come.
3. Pick up your box at Barber and Brew (Cold Spring, NY) during pick-up hours the week of 4/20-4/24 (delivery available for an additional fee).
4. Download your instructional video using the link we will send you.
5. Deputize your at-home sous chef, get your Exec Chef persona ready, follow along with the video, create your at-home-farm-dinner and ENJOY!

With your purchase you will receive:
-- custom recipes from that month's guest chef
-- instructional video walking you through how to prepare the recipes
-- all the primary ingredients from Glynwood's Farm and other regional producers that you will need to create that month's custom recipes (you will need to provide your own pantry staples like oils, dairy, spices)

Each Farm-to-Home Dinner box will include enough ingredients to prepare a meal for two people. We offer upgrades and discounts for purchasing a "family box," which serves four people.

Because each box will be custom harvested and packed, you must purchase your box between 4/7 and 4/15. Pick-up or delivery will take place between 4/20 and 4/24. Once you have your box of ingredients, we will send you a link to download that month's instructional video.

We are so grateful to Chef Mark Margiotta for helping us to pilot this new way of bringing Glynwood to you until we can all gather round the table again.

August Farm Dinner

TICKETS FOR THE AUGUST FARM DINNER WILL GO ON SALE JULY 8, 2020.

August marks the peak of our growing season in the Northeast, and this month's dinner is all about that bounty. Join chef Winston Chiu of BonBite and ReThink Food as he shows the versatility of his work as applied to August's harvest at Glynwood.

Shortly after graduating from the Institute of Culinary Education, Chef Chiu sought apprenticeships in top restaurants such as Betony and WD50. Today he continues to follow his passion to cook, learn and teach, all while chasing his next succulent endeavor. As Chief Strategy Officer of the-non profit ReThink Food, Chef Chiu is a leader in the food access and justice community working to recover nutritious excess food "waste" to provide low or no-cost meals to New York City families in need. Come celebrate summer and Chef Chiu's important work and stellar local fare.

As we did last year, all our public programs are pay-what-you-can pricing. UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED: GLYNWOOD FARM DINNERS ARE BYOB EVENTS.

October Farm Dinner

TICKETS FOR THE OCTOBER FARM DINNER WILL GO ON SALE SEPTEMBER 24, 2020.
Just because our primary growing season is winding down and the Northeast is bedding down for the season, doesn't mean that local food is not longer abundant in the Hudson Valley. Evan Mallet is a James Beard semi-finalist for Best Chef in the Northeast with a focus on the hyper local and seasonal and emphasis on foraging. For this special dinner Evan will be working with a combination of local produce and protein along with the bounty of the fall, local product foraged on site here at Glynwood. For some added fun, join us the previous day, October 23rd to forage for your dinner with Evan on Glynwood's property (registration is separate, please check Glynwood's calendar)
For this dinner Director of Glynwood's Farm Lynda Prim will share some words on biodiversity and soil health and resilience in agriculture as it relates to regional cuisine, as well.
As we did last year, all our public programs are pay-what-you-can pricing. UNLESS OTHERWISE NOTED: GLYNWOOD FARM DINNERS ARE BYOB EVENTS.
