Suffolk County has created a new website for all the local producers of fruit, wine, fish, and beer. ChooseLI lists in-season produce and fish and also a map of nearby farm stands and breweries. Rob Carpenter, director of the Long Island Farm Bureau, says the site was built using donated staff time from Suffolk County.
