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

Help Us Out at the Foodie Tour, Won’t You?

Slow Food East End will have a tasting table at the start of the Foodie Tour. Loads of people pick up their tickets and start the tour at the Agricultural Center at Charnews Farm in Southold. It’s a great opportunity to tell people about what Slow Food means and to encourage people to join the Slow Food movement. If you’d like to help, send an email to volunteers@slowfoodeastend.og
