Apply for Glynwood Farm’s Business Incubator!

The deadline for initial applications and letters of intent for Glynwood’s Hudson Valley Farm Business Incubator (HVFBI) has been extended to January 6, 2017, with the 2017 program beginning in early next May.

HVFBI is taking the “long view” on supporting a new generation of farmers in the region, equipping participants with the tools and guidance to successfully get there. Visit their  website for more information.

The Hudson Valley Farm Business Incubator, a partnership with Mohonk Preserve and Open Space Institute (OSI), provides the tools and resources needed by aspiring agricultural entrepreneurs as they create viable new enterprises in the Hudson Valley. The Incubator reduces barriers to success for new farm businesses by providing access to land, housing, shared equipment, infrastructure, business and financial training, technical assistance and mentoring, advanced practical skills workshops, and strategic community relationships. It is a deeply hands-on program: Glynwood staff and other agricultural experts are closely involved in our participants’ business development. Launching farm-based businesses in the supportive, low-risk environment of the Incubator greatly increases the likelihood of business viability and success.
