For visitors seeking to slip away from a fast-paced world, Brookhaven offers the laid back tempo of agri-tourism. With more than a dozen farm stands featuring farm fresh, locally-grown produce, fresh plants and flowers, and baked goods, visitors can make a day of shopping and stand-hopping. At many stands, Fall welcomes corn mazes, pumpkin-picking and other harvest activities.

And since Brookhaven is just minutes away from Long Island’s fine wineries, visitors can add that to the day’s bucket list and enjoy a day of wine-tasting and touring at any of the North Fork’s 46 wineries. click here for a complete guide, or call 631-369-5887.
