One dude. One acre. 100 varieties. This video features Dan Machin's one-acre farm, dubbed The Lone Acre, in Riverhead, Long Island. Machin focuses on diversity and companion planting—"using different plants to offset different pests and diseases"—and shows that you can feed a lot of people with a small plot of land. You can check out Machin's produce at the farmers' market at J.J. Byrne Park in Park Slope on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Watch the video after the jump.
