NOTES ON THE SHARE
In case you're counting, we have nine more weeks of harvest for this year's CSA program. Long Island's East End has a longer growing season than most other places in the Northeast because of the close proximity to Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay. Our farm, which is essentially two separate parcels of land, is adjacent to both the Sound and the Bay. We hope you can make it out to visit us and see where your food is grown at our Harvest Festival in October...

Mark your calendars now for our annual CSA Harvest Festival on Sunday, October 19th from 11am-3pm. Free for all CSA member families and their guests. Hayride & Walking Tours, Cooking Demos, Live Music, Kids' Activities, GIANT Haystack and more!

FRUIT STORAGE TIPS
"The best way to ripen the fruit is to take it out of the plastic bag and let the condensation dry off so the moisture doesn't encourage any spoilage. As soon as it is ripe, eat it right away or put it in the fridge." - Farmer Clark, Briermere Farms
