Here is a post from the Pure Catskills blog:
Lazy Crazy Acres in Arkville:
We have been bottling as much milk as we can as there is a shortage in the area. Milk is available at the old Market Basket in Arkville and at Sams in Fleischmanns. Looking to borrow a 24kw generator to help with producton. Cows need milking. Please call Jake Fairbairn at 845.302.8016.
I just received this list of farmers who have requested volunteer help from Crop Mob NYC. The organization is not putting together a team, but individuals can contact the farmers to offer their services.

Kate and Conor Crickmore:
Challey, Crop Mob isn't able to organize groups at this time, so they suggested contacting the farms directly.
Hi Meghan and All.
I'm working now with Greenmarket on some transportation from NYC to farms in need. They have been working on a comprehensive list of farms based on the 235 that sell in their markets to see who was affected (about 80% of their vendors) and who is in really bad shape (about 15 farms have near-total or total losses). We'll focus on getting helping hands to those who need it most and who are equipped to handle it.
I'll definitely pass along info about Mobs as we figure them out. I didn't see a way to do it alone and fortunately lots of other folks are working on it together now.
**in the meantime, you can keep up with what Crop Mob NYC and Lower Hudson Crop Mob are doing by joining our Facebook or Google groups.
I know it is belated, but do you know if any of these farms are still in need of assistance?
