About the Project 

This website is the culmination of a capstone project I worked on during my senior year at Stony Brook University. I didn't grow up around any farms coming from a suburb in Cleveland. However, I discovered that the roots of the farming tradition on Long Island run deep. Long Island is unique in that while farmland has slowly diminished over the decades, farming can still thrive off of the locals, restaurants and business that continue to show a devotion to the distinct tastes this region has to offer
