Good Food Farmers Network was created to improve the financial viability of sustainable, Hudson Valley agriculture and to increase the availability of “good food.” But what does “good food” actually mean? To us, as farmers, Good Food refers to food that is:
Fresh ≈ Grown, harvested, and/or prepared in the Hudson Valley and distributed to maximize freshness, flavor, and nutritional value — maintaining the integrity of the food from our farms to your table.
Restorative ≈ For the benefit of both people and planet, our food is produced using farming practices that increase biodiversity, regenerate the soil, and promote clean air, clean water, and healthy ecosystems. We seek to mirror nature as closely as possible. Animal welfare and environmental stewardship are paramount.
For community ≈ Increasing access to high quality food and offering a living wage to more people in the food systems value chain. We work hard to provide meaningful jobs that support a high quality of life for all landworkers and increase access to high quality food for all people. We support other local businesses and seek to strengthen the local economies and communities in which we operate.
