Video: Brooklyn's Cool New Backyard Farms


Most people assume it takes a lot of land to be considered "a farm" but Stacey Murphy, founder of BK Farmyards in Brooklyn, can transform any backyard with at least 400 square feet and six hours of daily sun exposure into a real-deal, produce-growing farm. It may not have rows of corn à la middle of Iowa but every 250-square feet can feed four to six people seasonally alone. Murphy already has two sites set up in Ditmas Park and is hunting for more urban land to farm-ify. The video, after the jump.
