The Upstate Curious Community

Tap into one of the best parts about this special area — the people!

The Upstate Curious Team loves our Hudson Valley and Catskills region. We're fiercely local, and passionate about bringing people, places, and small businesses together. To do that, we've created a number of ways for area newcomers and fellow upstaters to connect with each other, so curious folks can stick together!

Get Connected

We created the lively Upstate Curious app (with thousands of members already!) so that homeowners, visitors, and weekenders — like YOU — can share the latest, meet each other, get crowdsourced local recommendations, ask questions, and connect with their neighbors or locals in the area. Curious folks like you are a huge part of what makes the Hudson Valley + Catskills so special!



Giving Back: NY Farmland Access Fund

Upstate Curious has joined forces with  American Farmland Trust to help launch the New York Farmland Access Fund (NYFAF).

This fund empowers a new generation of first-time LGBTQ+, BIPOC, and women farmers through equitable farmland access and permanent farmland protection in the Hudson Valley and beyond.
