The Perennial Plate: Episode 72

The Perennial Plate Episode 72: After the Flood from Daniel Klein on Vimeo.

Daniel Klein and  camerawoman Mirra Fine of The Perennial Plate interrupted their Real Food Road Trip last August when Hurricane Irene devastated farms in upstate New York. The flooding that resulted from the hurricane, and the rains that re-flooded farms in the Northeast a week later, wiped out crops in late summer–the most important part of the year for a lot of farmers. It’s like losing your entire income. Such is the story in this video of Pete Taliaferro and Ray Bradley. Although Hurricane Irene is long gone, farmers will feel her effects for a long time.
