    Farms in Long Island, New York, are at a critical juncture. Faced with historical development pressures, many families have sold their land to real-estate developers, while others are struggling to preserve their family and occupational heritage. This video examines the history and current status of the region's family and commercial farms. It begins in the pre-settlement periods of 1640 and continues up to the present day, featuring interviews with numerous local farmers who explain how an increasing number of farms are vanishing from the Long Island landscape.
