In 2017 Greenhorns produced a multi-facted and multi-media project called “Grange Future” which traced the politics, songs, economic legacies, and the cultural fabric of the Grange Movement in the United States. “Grange Future” was a community history project showcasing Granges as models for futurist, family-farm oriented community actions that hold a strong basis in economic theory, resistance, and cooperation.
With this project, Greenhorns gleaned the organizational wisdom encapsulated in decades of agrarian organizing.

Grange Future, Songs of the Patrons of Husbandry
We produced a vinyl record with Brian Dewan, available in our webstore.
This record was recorded entirely in Grange halls (you can occasionally hear a snow plow) in the Adirondacks of New York, thank you to the Whallonsburg Grange and Ausable Forks Grange.
We have a little teaser for free here.
