Organic farming in the Catskill Mountains of New York

Kate and Dan make a food delivery to a customer in Upper Manhattan. It takes them most of a day to drive the three hours from Stony Creek to the city and make six or eight delivery stops, sales totaling at roughly $1,300. Kate figures she makes 25 percent profit on her products this way, as opposed to 10 percent if she sold the food to a wholesaler. Although it's not a lucrative endeavour, Kate said, "I have to sell my product."
