Cairo Farmer’s Take on Irene in Mark Bittman’s Blog
New York Times food writer Mark Bittman is planning a series of posts on first-person accounts of the effects of Irene on farms in the Northeast. Here is a thoughtful, heartbreaking contribution from Deborah Kavakos at Stoneledge Farm in Cairo, Greene County. You can check out Stoneledge’s website for photos of the farm, both before and after.
Bittman is still soliciting submissions from farmers about Irene’s aftermath. If you have a story to tell, write to Bittman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
