Like Farmer, Like Dog is a series exploring the relationship between urban farmers and their canine companions in New York City. For many urban farms, these dogs are really the only animal representation they have, given the challenges of raising livestock in the middle of a city. In episode one, we meet Emma Gonzalez of North Brooklyn Farms and her dog, Jam. Emma – who is a chef, farmer, and event planner – found Jam through the Sato Project, which rescues dogs from Puerto Rico. We also hear from Henry Sweets, one of the cofounders of North Brooklyn Farms, about how Jam plays a huge role at the farm, despite her petite size.
