Farmers of the Year

One of our favorite North Fork farms is getting some much-deserved recognition in the industry. Fred and Karen Lee, owners of Sang Lee Farms in Peconic, have been named Farmers of the Year by Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York (NOFA-NY). At the annual winter conference in Saratoga Springs this past January, the husband and wife team were honored for their commitment to organic farming.

“Certified organic since 2007, the Lees have intentionally shifted their farming practices, distribution, and product line to focus on direct sales of more than 100 varieties of specialty vegetables through farmers markets, a farm stand, and a CSA,” a press release stated.
