Greenmarket Discussion on Brian Lehrer

Check out Windfall Farms', "local farmer", Morse Pitts and Phil Yacuc of Council on the Environment talk about local agriculture on Brian Lehrer.
You can find the video here. Morse & Phil appear 3/4 of the way into the program, so let the video download all the way and scroll to the end of the program.

One statistic I caught from a video clip shown in the program
"7% of "our" farms sell 70% of our food, and collect the majority of farm subsidies offered by the US government."
I guess we should consider them "our" farms since anyone that pays taxes is sustaining all the large farms the accept them!
