Although the east coast has had temperatures in the `70s and `80s, the seasons are changing. Soon, the green of summer will transition to the red, orange and gold of fall. Its the time of year when friends and families venture out to pick apples, select pumpkins for carving or find the perfect hayride. Its also an opportunity to learn more about sustainable farming and what better way than getting lost in a corn maze in the shape of a snail dedicated to the Slow Food movement?
Seriously, its true. Check out the actual picture of the snail maze created by Slow Food East End chapter member, Harry Ludlow, who owns Fairview Farm in Bridgehampton, New York. Although the maze is meant to be fun and entertaining, Harry also tries to educate visitors on the importance buying local, sustainably farmed or raised foods, such as the heritage pigs he also raises on the farm.
So, if you can get out to the South Fork of Long Island in the coming weeks take a walk through the snail maze. Hopefully you can find your way out.
