Happy National Cheesecake Day.
A farm stand might not be the first place you’d think of to go to celebrate this day with a piece of cheesecake, but at Northville Farms in Riverhead, it’s a bestseller.
Along with fresh blueberries, tomatoes and strawberries, Northville serves award-winning Holey Moses Cheesecake.
It’s one of the only cheesecakes in the world to receive the prestigious Outstanding Dessert Award at the New York Fancy Food Show making it the perfect way to celebrate National Cheesecake Day.
The unofficial holiday, which comes annually on July 30, observes the rich and delicious history of the cheesecake.
The treat dates back to 770 BC, when the dessert was served to Olympic athletes.
Today, there are European, Latin American, Asian and, of course, American variations on how the dessert is baked and served.
Westhampton-based Holey Moses Cheesecake has been making creamy cheesecakes since 1988, in addition to fruit pies and fresh squeezed key lime pies that they sell to restaurants, caterers, country clubs and individual customers.
Try it out for yourself at Northville Farms, located at 5333 Sound Avenue, Riverhead.
