Dining on the North Fork of Long Island is a culinary delight, especially during the holidays. With the abundance of local ingredients from the surrounding farms, fresh local seafood, and fine local wines and cheeses, enjoy a sampling of some of the best restaurants open year-round on the North Fork.
The North Fork Chapter held a Summer Sunset barbeque and fundraiser on the evening of September 12th at Founders Landing in Southold. Les Scheinfeld the Director of Development at Habitat for Humanity attended the event to help support the fundraiser.
Harvest time on the North Fork typically occurs from mid-September through late October, when the grapes are ripened and plucked from the vines, pumpkins are ready for Halloween, and apples are crisp and delicious as they are picked from the trees.

With its maritime climate, warm summers, cool breezes, unique soils, and long growing season, it has 3,000 acres of vineyards, 51 wine producing. The North Fork has 47, while the South Fork has four.
