On Long Island, summer means beaches, barbecues, surf and fresh locally grown produce. With our Going Local program, we are bringing that fresh, locally grown produce directly from East End farms to various supermarkets across Nassau and Suffolk counties. This produce is shipped and on store shelves within 24 hours of being picked making it as fresh as it gets. 

Our partner growers have been in the farming business for over 100 years, making their mark on the East End farming community and now across all of Long Island.
