The Grand Avenue Yorker Club went on their annual Wickham Farm field trip on Sept. 27.

“Student members picked apples, pumpkins, toured the apple cider press and green houses while learning about the history of one of the oldest farms on the island,” explained club advisor and social studies teacher Dominik Bargiel.

The Wickham family farm has been part of the island landscape since the 1600's. This Colonial Era farm provides the students a unique perspective of the culture, landscape and agriculture of the east end of Long Island.

The Yorker Club meets twice a month after school and tours historical sites across Long Island and New York City. They are also involved in community service projects. Social studies teachers Dominik Bargiel and Daniel Rummenie serve as club advisors.
