#15: The Unique Farming Experience in Long Island, NY


New York Farm Bureau News Bytes

In this week's episode we explore Long Island, NY.

With close to 500 farms covering 30-thousand acres, this area is one of the major productive areas in all of New York. Farms share the increasingly developed area with more and more residential home, which means more customers but also development pressures for the farmers.

Featured in this episode is Long Island Farm Bureau's Administrative Director, Rob Carpenter and Laurie McBride, Farm Stand Manager for Wickham’s Fruit Farm on the East End of Long Island.
