How to Save a Farm in the Hudson Valley

November 7, 2018
Posted in Greenmarket

Part of Greenmarket’s two-fold mission is to promote regional farmers and keep them on their land...farming.

Ask anyone in GrowNYC’s FARMroots program, and they’ll tell you that it’s not easy, particularly with increasing pressure on farm families to sell their lands for development. But they will also tell you that it is always worth it.

A recent article in the New Food Economy tells the story of how long-established Greenmarket farmer Morse Pitts, working with FARMroots, Equity Trust, Scenic Hudson, and the Orange County Land Trust, preserved a 72-acre farm from being paved over, blocking a proposed industrial development and placing the land under perpetual conservation easement.

A must-read – check it out!
