For a non-vineyard picnic alternative, head to Peconic River Herb Farm (open daily through October 31), where locals are known to spend the afternoon wandering the nursery’s lushly landscaped riverfront in Calverton. Visitors are welcome to spend time hiking the fourteen-acre property and meandering through the display gardens and lovely greenhouses. The farm sells cold drinks and encourages picnicking on the riverside lawn space or at their picnic tables and Adirondack chairs scattered throughout the property.
