Local farmers like Tom Wickham are reinvigorating a 350-year-old East End tradition.
The last minute guide to a local Thanksgiving on the East End, whether you cook or not.
Wölffer’s 1949 Chevy Cider Truck has been making the rounds, starting in New York City. This week, it’s hitting the East End. Meet up with the truck for the winery’s Cider Road Trip and sample Wölffer No. 139 Dry White and Rosé ciders.
Shinn Estate’s been making hard pear cider using produce from Wickham’s since 2008.
When shadows begin to stretch and the word “crisp” begins to describe the air, there’s one thing that comes to everyone’s mind: apple season. As a native North Forker, I have always looked forward to the fall months: Krupski’s pumpkin patch, Harbes’ roasted corn, Briermere’s fruit pies.
Harvest season is always a great time to visit the East End and take in our vineyards, farm stands and farmers markets. Many markets and stands will start to close next month, so get your vegetables now.
Hard cider is hard to miss these days. Edible featured Woodside Orchards in this year’s Low Summer issue and Peconic Bay has been making True Believer since last year turning cidre into something as American as apple pie.
Currently hard cider is the only alcoholic beverage that can be sold in grocery stores and liquor stores.
The 1st Annual Pour the Core: A Hard Cider Festival will be held at Peconic Bay Winery in Cutchogue on Saturday, October 20 from 1 to 5 p.m.
