Scott Chaskey is the head farmer at Quail Hill Farm in Amagansett, New York and author of the book The Common Ground: Seasons on an Organic Farm

Quail Hill Farm is an organic community farm on the eastern tip of Long Island, one of first of the growing 1,500 community-supported agricultural farms in the country, feeding over 200 families plus suppling food to restaurants, a school, and food pantries. The Pecoconic Land trust created a short film ( about 16 minutes total) about the farmers in this area, including Chaskey. The film gives a peak into the life of young farmers today and their challenges.
