Let’s Celebrate the Labor of Local Farmers 
and Food Makers
 Hudson Valley Farmers Stimulate Growth

According to the definition of Labor Day by the U.S. Department of Labor, this coming Monday is “dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers.” For those of us seeking to build our local food system, it’s a great occasion to thank our farmers and food producers. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the professions known as “Farmers, Ranchers, and Other Agricultural Managers,” are currently on the decline. They project that the number of jobs in this category will contract by 8% from 2010-2020. 

The diminishing number of agricultural workers seems contrary to the fact that the U.S. population is growing. We keeping having more bellies to fill. Thus the decline in agricultural jobs points to corporate consolidation, not a diminished need for the work. The organization Farm Aid, some of the first fighters on the scene to save family farms, publicizes important data on this consolidation: “As of 2007, four companies owned 83.5% of the beef market – more than double the ‘highly concentrated’ cut-off point of 40%. Similarly, the top four firms owned 66% of the hog industry and 58.5% of the broiler chicken industry. In the seed industry, four companies control 50% of the proprietary seed market and 43% of the commercial seed market worldwide. When it comes to genetically engineered (GE) crops, just one company, Monsanto, boasts control over 85% of U.S. corn acreage and 91% of U.S. soybean acreage.”

But before we give up and throw in the trowel, let’s keep in mind that the local food movement is making strides. Late last year, the Department of Agriculture reported that “local food sales” amounted to a $4.8 billion dollars business in 2008. Together we are creating the alternative to corporate-controlled food.

This Labor Day, let’s continue to celebrate the community-scale farms and food businesses in our region. They make our food everyday, and in doing so, they bolster our community and our environment. At our local farmers market, we can thank them in person – and do the happy work of supporting them through our purchases. See you there!

Highlighted Vendor

TierraFarm_MGP_July2012

Tierra Farm
Established 2001
Valatie, New York
Owned by Gunther Fishgold

In 2001 Gunther Fishgold started an organic nut facility in Valatie, NY to create a source of winter income for his organic vegetable farm. In the beginning he split his time between Tierra Farm in the Finger Lakes and his fledgling nut facility. But as Tierra Farm’s nuts, seeds, and dried fruit took off and became a thriving year-round business, the 39 year-old Fishgold moved his farm to Valatie, where most of the organic harvest is now used to feed his 21 employees. 

By sourcing as many ingredients as possible regionally and personally visiting most of the facilities he buys from, Fishgold’s nut business maintains his vision of quality and sustainability. “We are our own customers,” says Dan Laiosa, who met Fishgold through a mutual friend and is now the manager of Tierra Farm. “We create the kind of food we like to eat.” The 29 year-old, Laiosa says he enjoys having a snack around while he works, touting the health benefits of nuts. “With all the Omegas I’m definitely way smarter than I ever was,” he says.

Allergic to peanuts, wheat, or dairy? No need to worry. All of Tierra Farm’s roasting, mixing, and flavoring is conducted in-house, at a certified organic, peanut-free roasting and processing facility! Tierra now sells fair-trade, organic coffee too!

Shoppers can find Tierra Farm at our farmers markets in Cooper Park, Jamaica, Larchmont, McGolrick Park, Morningside Park, New Rochelle, Ossining, Park Slope, Piermont, Pleasantville, Queens Botanical Garden, Rye, and Tarrytown.
