Driving down Route 25A in Old Brookville, the last sight you'd expect to see is a farm. But if you turn onto Route 107 going north and then make the first right into Hegeman's Lane, you'll find yourself transported into what seems like another world and time.
Stop at the sign that says "Youngs Farm - the Annex," and you can buy fresh produce in season as well as delectable fresh fruit pies and more at their bakery.
The Bakery at Youngs Farm - The Annex
Youngs Farm was founded in 1893 by John H. Youngs. His great-grandfather, Thomas Youngs, owned an apple orchard in Oyster Bay. Today, this farm is still run by members of the Youngs family and continues to sell outstanding produce to customers on Long Island.
As you enter a large building that was once a barn, you'll see a wide array of homemade fruit pies including apple, peach, pumpkin, and pecan. Choose from these and freshly baked muffins, cookies, brownies and more to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The farm is open February through December. For current information on days/hours, directions and contact information, check out their official website.
