Farmingville, NY – On October 6, Councilman Kevin LaValle (left) and Councilwoman Valerie Cartright (right) attended the annual Bethel Hobbs Farm Fall Festival in Centereach. The festival included food, games, tractor rides, vendors, contests, music and more. All proceeds from the festival benefit the farm to help provide fresh wholesome produce to those in need. Bethel Hobbs Farm is the only remaining working farm in Council District 3. It supports groups and individuals who participate in learning how to organically grow fresh produce while participating in educational activities which include weed search, composting and other projects which vary with the season.
