That’s exactly what will be happening on Saturday, June 6, when the 2nd annual Spring House & Farm Tour takes place on the North Fork of Long Island.
The first event last year was organized by some of the local bed-and-breakfast inns, and included tastings of locally made wines. This year, another element has been added: a pair of farm stops.
In a nutshell, here’s how it works: You buy a ticket for $75 (online at www.nofohousetour.com). You then bring that ticket with you on June 6, when you’ll visit B&Bs and two farm stops. At each stop, there will be either wine from a local winery or beer from a local brewery to try with food from local restaurants.
And at the B&B stops, there also will be live music.
So, you could simply make a day of it and have a great time, or you could bring along a notepad and a pen, and jot down your impressions to help you plan a summer vacation for a full weekend or a week.
Even better, proceeds from ticket sales will go to help fund the Long Island Farm Bureau and the Peconic Land Trust, two groups that are dedicated to preserving the quality and tranquility of the North Fork.
The 2nd annual Spring House & Farm Tour promises to be a fun day, and it may well lead to many more fun days for you this summer and beyond. After all, as we’ve noted in a previous blog, there’s a lot for wine drinkers to love about the North Fork of Long Island.
