During the growing season, we welcome farmers for on-site discussions of the Farm Hub’s work as it progresses. These field days and twilight meetings are an invaluable way for farmers to participate in and learn about the resilient practices we are using on the farm.
In light of developments relating to COVID-19, we are postponing events on the farm until further notice. Please check our website regularly or our Facebook page for updates
The Farm Hub has collaborated with Oceans 8 Films on short films that showcase our various initiatives. These films are often screened as part of Oceans 8 ‘s Hudson River Stories.
As of March 16 screenings have been postponed due to COVID-19, but in the interim please enjoy watching the films right here.
Farming is ever-evolving. Today, when we think about what’s to come next for farmers a key question is, “How do we produce food and still maintain a livelihood for farmers while respecting the needs of other organisms with which we share the land?” As part of the Applied Farmscape Ecology Research Collaborative, scientists and researchers examine that question by researching and monitoring soil, water, and wildlife to discover how farming and wildlife co-exist.
Growing with the Grain
This short documentary film on the small grains research trials continues to screen as part of Oceans 8 Films `Hope on the Hudson 2’ series. The trials are a collaboration between the Farm Hub and Cornell University and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County to gather data on a variety of grains and share their findings with area farmers interested in adding grains into their rotations and moving into the local grains market.
Seeds of Hope
Spotlighting the collaborative initiative to preserve Native American culture and foodways through seed saving, this initiative is being conducted at the Farm Hub in partnership with the Akwesasne Mohawk Tribe of northern New York and with the support of Seedshed.
