We spoke with Hector Perez of Jersey Farm Produce at St.
George Greenmarket about the impact of Sandy on his 46 acres farm in
Milford, New Jersey. Hector talked about the inevitability of loss in
agriculture and how, as a farmer, he deals with loss in farming. With
90% of his revenue coming from Greenmarket, the loss of 5 markets has
a significant impact on his financial future.

“We lost 5 markets. We lost about $20,000 in sales… if you
want to farm you have to live with the loss. That is what I learned
years ago.”–Hector Perez of Jersey Farm Produce
