California Governor Jerry Brown has declared a drought state of emergency. Laura Avery talks to farmers Troy Regier, a family farmer from Reedley, and Dawn Canter from Flora Bella Farm about how the drought is affecting their crops.
Good Food also turns to two journalists to find out more about the drought situation. Vinnee Tong, a freelance reporter and producer at KQED, has been talking to cattle ranchers across the state who are some of the hardest hit by the California drought. She explains why cattle are such a strong indicator of drought. Paul Rogers, who covers resources and environmental issues for the San Jose Mercury News, recently wrote about the extreme weather conditions that are causing the drought.
