Salt Air Farm is a family run farm with a fascinating history. The family that runs and operates the farm has roots that run deep, having farmed on the East End since the 1600s when the original land was given as a grant from the King of England. The land used today as Salt Air Farm was originally a neighboring farmstead and wasn’t added to the original holdings until 1970s. It is now one of the oldest pieces of continually farmed land in America.

The 130+ acre farm has a long track record of growing high-quality in-demand cut flowers and fruits. The beautiful property also plays host to private garden parties and weddings in an ideal North Fork location between the farming village of Cutchogue and the fishing village of New Suffolk, stretching two salt march inlets along the Peconic Bay. Due to its seaside environment, the farm is able to grow an extensive variety of flowers and fruits that thrive, including Hydrangea (over 50 varieties!), Pussy Willow, Roses, Scabiosa, Quince, NineBark, Blackberry, Blueberry, Viburnum, Peonies, Lavender, Mums, Daisies, Thistle, Poppy, Anemones, and much more.
