While Hurricane Irene may have hit this last August, its aftershocks are still being felt by farmers and growers in New York and around the Northeast. This week Let's Eat In welcomes Jean Hodesh and June Russell of Greenmarket NYC to discuss the hardships that their producers are facing and what they are doing to help farmers with their new debts, such as coming up with farm registries and fundraisers. Later on, tune in for some holiday recipes and tips from making pie crusts (butter or lard??), the best kind of flour for pastries, and even how to roll your own oats! This episode is sponsored by S. Wallace Edwards & Sons.
