A 900-acre Demeter certified 650A Biodynamic farm in central Columbia County, NY

Hawthorne Valley Partners with the Natural Gourmet Institute

Later this year, students in the Natural Gourmet Institute’s new sustainable farming certificate program will leave Manhattan and spend a week getting their hands in the soil at Hawthorne Valley Farm. The program is the first in a series of planned certificate courses under the leadership of CEO Anthony Fassio.

“Students will literally go field to fork studying integrative farming, which balances plants, animals and the cultivation of healthy soil, by day, and cooking for each other at night.”
