The North Fork is Farm Country. Before we enjoyed vistas of vineyards, there were potato fields as far as the eye could see. Local farmers don't grow as many potatoes as they once did, but there are still plenty of farms, and farmstands, where you can find your favorite fresh vegetables, fruits and flowers grown locally by locals. In fact, many growers are a great direct resource for an event that showcases farm to fork sensibilities-and you won't find fresher flowers than those grown in your backyard.
