Organics Today Farm, East Islip, Long Island
I love this season. The berries are ripe for picking, the colors at the farmer’s markets are a bit brighter, and best of all – the farms are open for picking your own fruits and vegetables. There’s just something about getting out in the soil, and seeing the root of your food.
My diet is about 90% organic now (some things I just can’t live without, like my beloved Café Bustelo!), so I search out organic produce for myself and my daughter whenever possible. Here is a list of some great organic farms on Long Island. Make it a day trip if you’re in the city!
