We are young and beginning farmers of the Hudson Valley organizing to support each other in starting and sustaining viable agricultural businesses. We believe in the transformative potential of small businesses, local agriculture, and cooperation to build a durable and prosperous agricultural economy in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
We come together to better understand the needs of young and beginning farmers in this region and to address and advocate for those needs. We work together on building collaborative infrastructure, mobilizing to shift regional and national farm policy, increasing access to resources (land, grants and loans, health care), consolidating information, and creating spaces where young farmers from all backgrounds can share, learn, and gather.
By building a functional network for resource and information sharing we can all share in the resilient local economy that will support this region for years to come.
