Meet the North Fork II: July-December

Each week, we feature an interview with a quintessentially North Fork business or cultural institution. In honor of the year's end, last week and this we feature six interviews from 2015; one from every month. These six feature Pat Mundus-Wooden boats & Jaws; new farmers & local farming with the East End Mushroom Company; the next generation at Burton's Bookstore and the Village Cheese Shop; and two people who need no further introduction--Aldo, and Al Krupski. Enjoy:
