Mama Farm B&B and Early Girl Farm
"A visit to Isabella Rossellini and her daughter Elettra Wiedemann’s farm includes a stop at Early Girl Farm market and the newly opened B&B. (I worked with her on it!) Wander through the grounds, which include fruit and vegetable and flower fields, sheep and chicken quarters, and beehives for honey production. CSA memberships are available. Seasonal concerts and films and cooking classes are on their website." —Tricia Foley

The Bellport
"The place to be on Friday evenings to meet friends and catch up on what’s happening in town. A glass of rosé, a pizza or crab cakes and the roast chicken are all-time favorites." —Tricia Foley

Bellport-Brookhaven Historical Society
"Right in the village on Bellport Lane, they host lectures, book signings, exhibitions, and films; the Barn Museum is filled with artifacts representing the history of Bellport and collections of photographs and furnishings. The newly restored Post-Crowell House, circa 1833, will be open as a house museum at end of year and will be open by appointment for tours." —Tricia Foley

The Post-Morrow Foundation
"In Brookhaven Hamlet, on Bay Road, this conservation center has a beautiful winding trail through the woods and wetlands along Beaver Dam Creek, or as the old-timers call it, Fire Place Creek, with boardwalks and places to stop and look at the views and birdlife." —Tricia Foley

Copper Beech
"Thomas O’Brien and Dan Fink’s emporium of all good things for the home features furnishings, housewares, and gifts, as well as freshly prepared take-out food and baked goods. The pantry has the best olive oils, mustards, chocolates, pasta, sauces, and things you never knew you needed.” —Tricia Foley
