The farms of Saratoga County have, in some cases, been producing food since the days of the American Revolution, and some families can indeed trace their lineage back that far. Today’s farmers markets are one way that these family farms continue to sell their wares to the public, although wholesaling and larger farm stores have become the main way to buy from local farms these days. And of course there is always Stewart’s Shops, which brings local dairy and meat products to each of its convenience stores in our region and beyond.  Not including the Saratoga Race Course, Agriculture accounts for over $100 million annually in terms of business conducted in Saratoga County alone, and $5.4 billion statewide. According to the Farm Bureau, 98 percent of farms in the state of New York are family owned.

I recently spoke with WRGB Channel 6 about how Teen Workers could find themselves in high demand this summer. The Wall Street Journal reports that this year is shaping up as a boom year for summer jobs for young people. Industries that traditionally hire teenagers, like hospitality and retail, are rapidly expanding again. Millions of young adults have been vaccinated against COVID-19, making them more comfortable than they were last year with high-contact, in-person jobs. Youth summer employment has been trending downward since the 1970s, according to monthly data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In July 1978, 71.8% of workers aged 16 to 19 participated in the labor force. In the 2010s, that number never topped 45%. This year could begin to reverse that trend.
