North Fork Fall Fun!

September 15, 2017 by QuintessentialsInc

The rich agricultural heritage of the North Fork provides a cornucopia of harvest riches from Spring to Fall.  On land, our numerous farm stands and specialty stores offer fresh produce, baked goods, and specialty items.  At many farms, you can pick your own apples, pears, and pumpkins, select your flowers, plants, and trees, including cutting your own Christmas tree.  Relax with your kids in the corn maze, pony rides, and bouncy houses.  If you’re not a fraidy-cat, experience one of the increasing popular Halloween events.

By sea, catch your fish of the day on one of the fishing boats.  Stock up on clams, scallops, and oysters. Check out these website calendars for things to do on the North Fork of Long Island.
