NBC — Precious heirlooms will go up for auction on Tuesday at Sotheby’s in New York, but it’s not what you might think. The heirlooms are edible, and the art is in their creation.
Gwen Gajeski’s family has been working the Riverhead fields for four generations. Fifteen varieties of tomatoes, corn, cauliflower, onions – these are the gems of their family farm.
Come Tuesday, their produce will be sold at a place usually reserved for a different kind of gem – Sotheby’s in New York City.
