"We're living in a city who's sewer system was built well before a period of rapid development. With all these non-porous surfaces that have been added, there's a lot more water entering the sewer system. Now people are looking for creative ways to manage storm water, such as green roofs, and a farm like ours can store much more storm water than a normal green roof."
--Anastasia Cole Plakias of Brooklyn Grange
"In the new farm at the Navy Yard we will have between 20-30 beehives. Part of that project is genetic-oriented. In three years or so we hope to end up with New York City genetics, bees that are adapted to their environment. We want people to purchase bees from us, not just honey."

"We're spending a lot of time promoting our wine industry. We're the fifth largest wine producer in the country right now. We're trying to get these old world style wines in the global marketplace."
"We're blessed with having millions of acres of farmland in Virginia, but studies show that 100,000 acres a year are lost to development. Once those acres are gone, they're gone."
--Todd Haymore, Virginia Secretary of Agriculture and Forestry
"I think taking the drivers off the road from 1-5am [is a bad idea]. It's the most efficient time for truckers to operate on the road."

"There's been a huge upsurge in interest in traditional breeds over the past few years."
--Jeanette Beranger of the American Livestock Breed Conservancy on Straight, No Chaser
"There are a few reasons you're seeing vets interested in heritage breeds. Because a lot of the vets don't have a background in agriculture, they are taking a real close look at their situation and financials and realizing they have to be smart. Heritage breeds fit a niche market and don't require a large level of infrastructure."
"The unemployment rate for veterans is significantly higher than the national average. The unemployment rate for vets in the post 9/11 era is over 10%."
"Less than 10% of the US has ever served in the military. There's a huge disconnect between the knowledge base of what a veteran does."
--Chris Ritthaler of the Farmer Veteran Coalition on Straight, No Chaser
