Fret not, barbecue lovers of the North Fork: you should be able to enjoy local corn during the upcoming Fourth of July weekend.

Despite a brutal winter and a somewhat rainy June, several local farms said they have already begun harvesting corn — and they’re anticipating plenty of demand over the next few days.

“We just pulled some [Thursday] morning and it’s looking very good,” said Herbert Barron, an attendant at Wesnofske Farm in Peconic. “They look very good despite the rough winter. Actually, they look better than last year, in my opinion … For early stuff, it’s quite large.” (more…)

A man who allegedly burglarized Peconic’s Breeze Hill Farm around 5 p.m. Tuesday was caught on video by newly-installed surveillance cameras. Suffolk Security Systems, a security company based in Southold, posted a video of the suspect on its Facebook page Wednesday asking for the public’s help to identify him.

The theft occurred only a day after cameras were installed at the farm stand, according to the company’s owner, Paul Romanelli.

“This is the first time we’ve posted a video online to help police get more information,” Mr. Romanelli said.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Southold Town Police at 765-2600.
