Goodale Farms in Aquebogue, with its dirt driveway and noisy goats meandering out front, might not at first glance look like a full-scale dairy and butchery.
But the Aquebogue farm, which was founded just 10 years ago, boasts those facilities as well as 60 acres of land, 25 dairy cows, 125 goats, 10 beef cows, 20 pigs and 250 chickens. This past Wednesday, Peconic Land Trust teamed up with Goodale Farms to offer an educational tour of the property. (more…)

They have dubbed the dedicated space “Mr. Gallery.” (more…)
From tall ships, to multi-million dollar yachts, to fireboats, many spectacular vessels can be seen in Greenport. But for some, the most fascinating ones are not the most gargantuan.
Testing the waters in the Greenport harbor by the Shelter Island Ferry, The East End Seaport Museum’s model yacht club met for the first time last month.
Ed Chimney, an organizer at the museum and founder of the club, said that the club will meet every third Saturday of the month through October at the museum starting at 1:30 p.m. Upcoming events will be held on July 18, Aug. 15, Sept. 19 and Oct. 17. (more…)
