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. Glynwood 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 email@example.com with any questions about our Farm Dinners or overnight farm stays.
Glynwood's final Farm Dinner of the season features the Modern American cooking style of Chef Brandon Walker, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America. Inspired by global flavors as well as his own family roots in the Caribbean and American South, Chef Walker brings an innovative twist to tried and true dishes. Using local, seasonal ingredients whenever possible, he makes an effort to showcase the best that the Hudson Valley has to offer. His restaurant, Essie's is located in the Little Italy section of Poughkeepsie, NY.
