New Farmstand in Aquebogue Sells Greenhouse Heirloom Tomatoes

I finally pulled into the parking lot of Long Season Farm after having repeatedly passed it on Route 25 in Aquebogue. The stand, run by Ken and Laurie Jurow, is stocked entirely by the produce grown in the greenhouses behind the plywood shack. I got a tour, and wow! In my years writing about food and wine on the East End, I’ve never seen anything like it. The tomato plants in large plastic tubs are already at least three feet higher than Ken and covered in tomatoes in every color of the rainbow. Check it out.
