Nestled on the westbound side of Montauk Highway on the border of Water Mill and Bridgehampton, The Milk Pail is a popular visit when heading back west.

To this day, the farm is still the pride and joy of the 11th and 12th generation Halseys. The Milk Pail Country Store began over 30 years ago to sell milk, apples, and vegetables. They offer fresh pressed apple cider made from over eight varieties of their carefully nurtured apples. Daughters Amy and Jennifer Halsey continue to keep the farm stand alive and well stocked every year with their parents. Both daughters have gone through extensive schooling and gotten Bachelor’s degrees in floriculture and plant science, and pomology (the study of growing and marketing fruit), respectively. Over 1200 peach trees are blossoming at the family farm. Enjoy Amy’s Flowers and Jennifer’s peaches every season from May thru August.

Vicki’s Veggies

An inexpensive, low-key farm stand with top notch quality and service in its now 31st year of business. Vicki started her farm stand when she was only 11 years old and has kept it in the best of shape ever since. A quality herb garden, selectively chosen vegetables, and an experience worth the trip out there makes Vicki’s Veggies one of the best farm stands in the Hamptons. Open seven days a week from 7am-8pm, this is the perfect stop for the busy commuter looking to snag some organic produce or hanging baskets of flowers. Vicki’s Veggies is now being helped by her young daughter Maria. Last year, Vicki’s mother’s famous zucchini bread won first place at the Riverhead County Fair. Try a slice! The farm stand is run by Vicki and her mother. Want to know which one is Vicki behind the counter? Just look for the woman who isn’t wearing the shirt saying “I am not Vicki!”
