Long Island Agritourism During Harvest Time

November is the perfect time to sample the bounty of Long Island’s fertile soils. From apple orchards and pumpkin patches to well-stocked farmstands, check out some of the U-pick options at your disposal right here.

Sampling that Long Island bounty can also mean tasting its unique terroir. After all, there’s a vibrant winemaking industry here, and that crisp autumn sunshine is very much worth toasting with a glass of local vino. Get to know the Long Island wine country here, and work in some winery-hopping during your Menhaden stay.
