Each week, we will be spotlighting a different farm stand on the North Fork. Catapano Farms is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. everyday.
Name: Catapano Farms
History: The Catapano family started working as tenant farmers in Brooklyn four generations ago selling annual and perennial flowers wholesale. As the city expanded, the family moved further east to a farm in Hicksville until they were kicked out due to housing expansion. Finally, in 1986, they settled in the spot they are now. Current owner Daniel Catapano’s grandfather built a greenhouse and selling flowers became what Catapano Farms was known for, something that still is true today. (And FYI, it’s not to be confused with Catapano Dairy Farm, which is under different ownership.)
What they are offering: eggs, poultry, mums, cabbage, kale, lettuce varieties, broccoli, cauliflower, radicchio, tomatoes, squash and more.
