The North Fork of Long Island is famous for delectable fare — think Peconic Bay scallops and Long Island duck, strawberries, potatoes and wine country. The tradition of farming has continued and expanded. Now it’s taken on yet another life as artisans have begun to produce distinctive foods and explore methods of sustainable agriculture.
On Sunday, September 8th, the North Fork Reform Synagogue gives you a chance to meet the extraordinary people who have dedicated their lives to producing unique local foods and wines and learn how they do it.
If you purchase your tickets in advance, you can pick up a map of tour locations and information on times of special events any time after 9:00 am at Peconic Land Trust’s Agricultural Center at Charnews Farm in Southold. Then you’re off on your own personal do-as-you please foodie tour. It’s a great time to invite your “foodie friends” out for the weekend

What is Food Revolution Day?
Food Revolution Day is a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills. It’s a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone by focusing on three simple actions – cook it, share it, live it.
