We are sad to say summer is over but extremely excited about the Fall! This is the season for apple picking, warm cider, pumpkins, squash dishes, light jackets, Cabernet Franc & many other fall must-haves. The summer traffic has died down a bit. The weather is comfortable and relaxing. This may be the best season to visit the North Fork. We have compiled a list of upcoming events for September & October and these are some festivities you do not want to miss.
