Long Island is home to 35,000 acres of working farms growing over 100 varieties of products. The local greenhouses, farm fields and vineyards are what make this region so special and the investment into our own community is vital for our region to flourish. On Friday, August 5, 2016, Cornell Cooperative Extension, Long Island Farm Bureau and our partners invite you to the 6th Annual “Celebrate Grown on Long Island Day” at the Suffolk County Farm in Yaphank from 10am
to 2pm. Purchase local
in-season Grown on Long Island produce from the Farmers Market, meet local farmers, enjoy
roasted corn and wine and food tastings.
Activities for kids will be available,
including an educational animal yard
and wagon rides. Watch as two chefs battle for the Champion Title right in the Farmers Market at the ‘Seafood Throwdown’. This year
