Once a renowned, family-owned sweet corn farm, the Hudson Valley Farm Hub is developing a comprehensive applied research program that will be tailored to the Hudson Valley and focused on resilient agriculture and climate-smart farming practices.

In this way, it is uniquely positioned to realize its intention to become a true center, or “hub,” for sharing information, innovations and ideas. Projects on soil health, perennial grains, novel crops, riparian habitats and flood management are being developed in conjunction with Cornell University and other partners. Research can also play a critical role in providing information to Hudson Valley farmers on production and marketing of new crops.
