Since much of the growing season for fruits and vegetables
has come to an end, Sandy did not wreck havoc on farms themselves.
We spoke with David Haight, New York State Director of American
Farmland Trust, about the long-term relationship between farmers
and urban consumers after the Hurricane.

“Comparatively Sandy has reached far less havoc on the farm community… one of the biggest impacts on farmers is on their relationship with the urban community that is the consumer. For a lot of farmers that sell at Greenmarket or bring product into restaurants or grocery stores… that the damage that has been wrote on those consumers will have an impact.”–David Haight, New York State Director of American
