the golden earthworm vegetables
The Golden Earthworm farm is nestled on 40 acres of pristine land protected bya land preservation program on the North Fork of Long Island. The farm was startedin 1996 by Matthew Kurek, a chef turned farmer with a passion for growing beautiful, high-quality organic produce for the communities of Long Island. Since 2005, the farm has been co-owned and managed by Matthew and long-time friend and fellow farmer James Russo. Together, they grow over fifty different vegetables, berries and herbs for a CSA program with 14 local sites and 2 farmers’ markets.

bremiere farms fruit
Briermere Farms is located just a short drive away from Golden Earthworm Farm on Sound Avenue in Riverhead. The farm produces a wide variety of tree fruit and berries. Although Briermere Farms is not certified organic, some of their crops, including raspberries, blueberries and blackberries are grown in a way which would fulfill the organic standards.

Long Island is a difficult region for tree fruit production because of the high humidity levels which contribute to fungus disease pressure, and can decimate fruit quality (and sometimes the whole tree). At Briermere Farms, insecticides and fungicides are used only when needed to produce marketable fruit. The tree fruit is sprayed with 1 or 2 synthetic insecticides and fungicides at some point typically earlier in the season. No herbicides are used underneath the trees, and on-farm produced compost from leaves is the only fertilizer/nutrient source for their fruit crops.
