The Water Crisis: When Your Town Runs Dry

Why is preserving agriculture in New Jersey important? Proximity to 20 million people and a reliable 50 inches of rain a year are just a couple of reasons. Check out this short documentary on the perils of farming where rainfall isn't as reliable. California's Central Valley is an important food production region that is dangerously balanced on a water supply that is failing the farmers there.

California’s Central Valley is one of the most productive agricultural regions in the United States—it yields a third of the produce grown in the country and is the world’s largest supplier of canned tomatoes. But a seven-year drought has threatened the viability of the valley’s farmland, and many rural communities have suffered greatly as a result.

New Jersey’s First Farm Brewery Is Unexpectedly Awesome

Maybe the first, but certainly not the last! We're currently working with clients to establish on-farm breweries using their own home-grown ingredients. Maybe we can help you do this on your farm. By the way, Screamin' Hill is a great place run by great people we met during the Grown in Monmouth project!

American Farmers Are in Crisis

We work with farmers to find different ways to make farming more profitable and to respond to changing economic conditions. Falling commodity prices, tariffs and the trade wars are making things tough on small farmers. There are many alternatives. We can help you....

In the definitive farm crisis of the 1980s, over 500 farms a week shuttered, their land sold to larger operations. Main Streets and manufacturers closed down and towns hollowed out. The decade fundamentally altered the landscape of rural America, with cultural, economic, and political repercussions still felt today.

Is today’s crisis is as bad as the 1980s? It depends who you ask. While some of the proximate causes are different, it’s clear that many of the results are the same: larger farms; fewer farm owners, community institutions, and jobs; more drug addiction and poverty.

Many of the farms that have survived since the 1980s bought their neighbors’ farms, paid off debt over decades, and used every tool available to keep going. Now even these long-time survivors are at risk and they worry about what will follow.

Morris County Preserves Its 134th Farm

Not only is this a great project, it highlights the work that Frank Pinto and I have been doing to bring new farms into production. Since the 1950's you could be assured that each year would have less land being farmed than the year before. We've been able to reverse that trend and work with our clients to return land to productive agricultural practices. The future of farming in New Jersey is bright. Where else in the world can you have productive farms within an hour's drive of 20 million people? If you're interested in our work, please give us a call or contact us by email.
