The district’s secondary-level gourmet food classes had the chance to experience the agricultural business and learn where the food on their plates is coming from during a recent visit to Sang Lee Farms, Peconic, New York. 

Sang Lee Farms opened in the 1940s and began in the farming industry with Asian produce. The business continues to grow, thanks to the moderate climate offered by its location between the Long Island Sound and Peconic Bay. Now, the farm has expanded and includes a larger variety of locally grown, organic produce that has gained an excellent reputation. 

While touring the farm, students were able to pick, wash and sample items such as specialty baby greens, herbs, flowers and seasonal vegetables. Students also got the chance to purchase items such as salads, spreads and dips made fresh utilizing produce from the farms. They were excited to pick vegetables right from the ground, apples from the trees and bring home the “fruits of their labor” to enjoy with family and friends.
