This Mattituck home, with its hydrangea bushes, private beach and sun-drenched rooms, is just full of North Fork charm.

The four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath cedar shake house also offers water views with creek access. The half-acre property sits on Deep Hole Creek and includes a private dock. (more…)

Goodfood. Mattituck

You could say Luchi Masliah and Allison Katz, co-owners of the aptly named Goodfood., are in a sort of arranged marriage.

Two years ago, Masliah, 54, who sold her Gula Gula Empanadas products at the weekly Riverhead Farmers Market, signed a lease to open a brick-and-mortar store in Mattituck.

But she knew she needed a partner. Holly Browder, co-owner of organic poultry farm Browder’s Birds, suggested Katz, a local baker.

It turned out to be a good fit. (more…)

The Sidor family has grown potatoes on the same Mattituck property for more than a century. In fact, the first crops were planted at the Oregon Road farm in 1910.

The Long Island Rail Road, meanwhile, has shipped potatoes from the North Fork since the mid-19th century.

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. Ed Harbes and consulting winemaker Erik Bilka are doing good things and Harbes Vineyard is a producer on the rise. It’s a winery that wine lovers, not just wine tourists, need to know. (more…)
