For the latest edition of Food Curated, Liza de Guia heads upstate to survey the damage done by tropical storm Irene. She focuses on Maple Downs Farm in Middleburgh, a dairy farm that lost its crops, its cattle, and its equipment, and, in short, it's gut-wrenching. But it's also not the end of it: Sustainable food documentary series The Perennial Plate also went upstate, to the farms of Pete Taliaferro and Ray Bradley, two farmers whose crops were also devastated by the storm. Both videos serve as strong reminders that even though the storm missed New York City, it still managed to leave plenty of lasting damage in its wake.
