Visit Long Island’s North Fork this fall for a most memorable family adventure. Enjoy picking fresh apples at Wickham's Fruit Farm, followed by a stop at Riverhead Ciderhouse for tastings offered from a wide selection of naturally harvested ciders, local beer and wine, and other treats.
The historic Wickham’s Fruit Farm is one of the largest farms in the area, and while their emphasis is on fruit, you may even find some fresh donuts around. Those will pair up well with your next stop: Riverhead Ciderhouse, where you’ll enjoy a tasting of naturally harvested apple ciders, local beer and wine, and a variety of other apple products.
Depending on your tour date, you'll then visit the Greenport Maritime Festival (September 24) or the village of Port Jefferson for some shopping (October 22).
