Partnership conserves 178 acres on two working family farms
RED HOOK (DUTCHESS COUNTY)—Scenic Hudson, in collaboration with Dutchess Land Conservancy (DLC) and with support from the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and the Town of Red Hook, has partnered with two farm families to conserve 178 acres of prime agricultural land in the town. The farms are vitally important parts of the Hudson Valley/New York City “foodshed” because they contribute to the production of local, healthy food and support Red Hook’s agricultural economy.
