Albert H. Schmitt Family Farm – 6 Bagatelle Road, Dix Hills 
Each weekend is the Fall Festival at Schmitt Family Farm and there is plenty of indoor and outdoor fun for the whole family. Homemade candy apples, roasted corn, apple cider, and fresh baked pies make this an autumn dream!

Lewin Farms – 812 Sound Ave, Calverton
Now in its fourth generation, Lewin Farms has a long tradition of offering a wide variety of u-pick crops. You can’t possibly get any more local or fresh than that! Currently in season: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and apples! Pick your own crops before getting lost in their famous 5-acre corn maze. Each year the farm produces a new design which is never quite the same as the last. But don’t worry, it’s challenging but certainly doable for any age group.
