What about New York?

Dec 01, 2008
 I have enjoyed USFR for years, but have yet to see a piece on Central New York.  There is a rich farming tradition here...dairy farms south of the Erie Canal, and muck/vegetable farming just north of it.  We don’t see the large volumes typically associated with centers such as Iowa corn or Salinas vegetables, or corporate dairies, but seldom does such diverse agriculture coexist is as close proximity as it does in my hometown, Canastota, NY.  I would love to see a spotlight on my area, as every person who is proud of their heritage would.  I would be glad to put you in touch with people actively farming the area, all 3rd generation or better.

Hopefully Yours,
Michael Picciano MD
