Long Island Getaways

North Fork Apple & Cider

Escorted
Saturdays: August 25 & September 22

If you’re into country farms, sampling local cider spirits and delicacies, and strolling through a picturesque village that defines Eastern Long Island’s North Fork, this is the tour for you.

At Wickham’s Fruit Farm, you will enjoy a tractor ride through the orchards, followed by the picking of fruit that is in season. You can even purchase delicious, farm-made local favorites such as pies and cider donuts.

Next stop is Riverhead Ciderhouse. Situated at the gateway of Long Island’s wine region, the Riverhead Ciderhouse is a new and unique destination on eastern Long Island that offers a wide selection of naturally harvested apple ciders, local beer and wine, and other apple-infused treats. Through diligent planning over the last three years, the Ciderhouse has been developing ciders from top apple varieties in New York State, delivering crisp, exceptional flavors to the palate.

We will end the day in the charming Village of Port Jefferson, with breathtaking views of the harbor, quaint little shops, restaurants that cater to all palates - from pizza to tacos - and the freshest seafood around.
