Riverhead has around 20,000 acres of farmland that sustains food to different parts of New York and the entire US.

In terms of population, it has a number of Polish migrants. How Riverhead started is when European colonists purchased this place from Native Americans in 1649. Another portion was again purchased in the 1700s by Colonel William Smith.

Riverhead is an ideal place if you wish to relax or if you wish to live a more laid-back lifestyle. Over the years, its population grew mainly due to the opportunities of becoming part of the agriculture sector.
