Northeastern farmers face new challenges with severe drought

Hay and alfalfa grow in cracked soil in a field at the Mountain Meadows Farm, in Sudbury, Vt., Monday, Aug. 8, 2022. Brian Kemp, who manages the organic beef farm in Sudbury, describes the weather lately as inconsistent and impactful, which he attributes to a changing climate. Kemp is used to seeing the pastures at Mountain Meadows Farm grow slower in the hot, late summer, but this year the grass is at a standstill. (AP Photo/Steven Senne)
