The North Fork Foodie Tour
Celebrate the North Fork’s Bounty
The North Fork of Long Island is famous for delectable fare. Think Peconic Bay scallops and Long Island duck, strawberries, potatoes and wines. 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.
10th Annual North Fork Foodie Tour sponsored by North Fork Reform Synagogue on
Sunday, Sept. 11, 2016, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Once again, the Foodie Tour will be self-guided, similar to a house tour, and provide the opportunity for all who attend to visit North Fork producers of unique, local, artisanal food and wine. We know from experience that the Tour is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the finest of what the North Fork has to offer, to inform the attendees of how the products are made and to emphasize what makes them so special!

The Foodie Tour is a self-guided tour (similar to a house tour) and provides the opportunity for all who attend to visit North Fork producers of unique, local, artisanal food, wine and beer. The North Fork Foodie Tour continues to showcase the finest of what the North Fork has to offer as well as educate attendees on how the products are made with an emphasis on what makes these products, the people that produce them and the North Fork so special. We anticipate about 20 vendors representing a wide array of food producers on the North Fork, all providing behind-the-scenes tours of their farms and other establishments.
Headquarters: Charnews Farm
Charnews Farm, a 23.4 acre farm, was purchased by the Peconic Land Trust in 2008 with the help of Southold Town’s land preservation funds. The Trust has returned the long-fallow farm to cultivation, and its 1889 farmhouse is now occupied. The farm now serves as an incubator for innovative new farmers, six of whom lease space there. In addition, the farm’s Community Garden leases 50 smaller plots to educational programs and individuals who grow organic vegetables, herbs and flowers.
