The home, located on Stanley Road, has an en suite master bedroom that takes up the entire left side of the building. That room comes with a large walk-in closet and bathroom and is located on the first floor. The remaining five bedrooms are on the second floor of the 5,000-square-foot house.(more…)
At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I’ll say it one more time: the wines at Harbes Vineyard are way better than they need to be. With the throngs of people who visit their farm and agritainment mecca on the North Fork, they could get away with mediocre wines for the masses — but that’s not what I’ve found.

At MarGene Farms in Mattituck, you could say the food cycle is bedroom to farm to table.
Farmer Gene Krupski plants artichokes, tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables right on his kitchen counter. He begins the process in January and February, when he fills plant cells with soil and seeds and then places the plastic dome-covered cells in his light-filled bedroom.

“It’s crazy,” Mr. Krupski, who owns his farm with his wife, Maryann, said of the jungle-like conditions in his sleeping quarters. “You can’t even get out of bed. I have plants surrounding us.”(more…)
