Mark Parlee Discusses Impact of Severe Drought on Farmers

Published by

The hot and dry summer has resulted in a drought across the state of Massachusetts. CBS Boston and WHDH Boston 7 news recently came to talk to farmer Mark Parlee about how the drought has impacted our growing season.

In the clips below, Farmer Mark talks about how our irrigation system has been working around the clock to keep crops alive.

Our delicious blueberries, sweet corn, colorful flowers (and soon-to-be juicy apples and huge pumpkins) have all been possible this summer because of the irrigation system. Through a combination of drip irrigation and overhead irrigation, we’ve been able to combat the drought.
