Warwick Valley Farming
In the Warwick Valley, there are dairy farms, orchards, vegetable operations and vineyards that characterize the region's agricultural horn of plenty. The farmers have dedicated their lives to farming - whether their families have farmed in the Hudson Valley for generations, or they are relative newcomers drawn by the region's climate, soils and access to metropolitan markets.
A growing number of farmers take advantage of their proximity to large urban centers. Ever since greenmarkets opened in 1976, Warwick Valley farmers have supplied fresh produce to a growing number of New York City residents, as well as many fine, upscale restaurants.
