The First Farmers of Farmlandia
The Aielo family live in Glasco, New York, where they grow organic vegetables, particularly Italian greens that they sell at the Saugerties Farmers Market. They do this intensive growing on 1/4 acres of land! They are the first farmers I visited and the smallest in size but not in heart and talent. They are true farmers.
