Turtleback Farm Summer Program is a full day program running all summer on a private farm in rural Cutchogue on the North Fork. This program is designed to enrich the lives of youth through a myriad of experiential hands-on activities, socialization, and  cooperative activities.

Jennifer, the Program Director, is a former Elementary, Science, and Writing Teacher with a Masters Degree in Education. She has experience creating curriculums at Friends Academy and developing environmental education programs and activities at Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary in Oyster Bay and other locations.

The Cross Farm is a 30 acre former plant nursery consisting of various habitats including woodlands, fields, and freshwater ponds, making it an ideal location for environmental studies. It is located just west of Pellegrini Vineyards in Cutchogue.
