    HE is best known for being out on his farm, but Will Young has given fans the occasional look inside his house. The Love Island star, 23, lives in his family home in Buckinghamshire as he helps run the farm. 4Farmer Will revealed his bedroom in a video 4The star lives in his family home Before entering the villa, Will already had a huge TikTok following and has revealed his bedroom in one of his videos. It features a wooden double bed, with matching side table and built in wardrobes. In the clip, the hunk is seen wearing just his boxers before slinging on his overalls. He later strips off to put on a pair of shorts and T-shirts as part of a paid ad for clothing brand Dickies.

I think the longest I’ve been away from home is seven days. “So I would definitely miss the animals and...
    Cannabis leaves sit on plants growing in a greenhouse in the GW Pharmaceuticals Plc facility in Sittingboune, U.K. on Monday, Oct. 29, 2018.Jason Alden | Bloomberg | Getty Images A vast marijuana farm could soon be built on a small island between the U.K. and Ireland. Peel Group, a real estate firm led by 79-year-old billionaire John Whitaker, the company's chairman and largest shareholder, wants to build a £100 million ($136 million) cannabis-growing facility on the Isle of Man, where it is headquartered. The proposed facility, located on the fringe of the capital Douglas, would be used to produce medicinal cannabis that would then be distributed around the world and prescribed to patients. However, the self-governing nation is yet to legalize medicinal cannabis, meaning cannabis produced at the facility could not be prescribed for use on the Isle of Man. Located in the middle of the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man's economy is primarily based on finance, while tourism and agriculture are also key sectors. Chris Eves, finance director at Peel Group, told CNBC Wednesday that cannabis could be...
    OLD BROOKVILLE, Long Island (WABC) -- A family-run farm on Long Island that has been around for five generations is serving more customers than ever due to its increased customer base during the COVID-19 pandemic.Youngs Farm in Old Brookville is one of the few remaining working farms in Nassau County.Tim Dooley, the farm's director, said the farm already had a large group of loyal customers pre-pandemic, but that more people have started shopping there since COVID arrived -- and sales have skyrocketed."I think people were home more, less vacation, less dinners out," he said.ALSO READ | Long Island police officer reunites with mom, baby he helped deliverEMBED More News Videos A mother and her new son reunited with a Suffolk County officer who helped deliver and save the baby born on Christmas Eve.

    OLD BROOKVILLE, NY -- Youngs Farm is a throwback to a time when much of Long Island was farmland, and while most of those farms in Nassau County are gone, the Youngs family is still here, trading on their century-old traditions that have found new customers during the pandemic. The farm, located in Old Brookville, features its own 15 acres as well as greenhouses where they harvest 50 varieties of fruits and vegetables, and the produce is certified organic.But the farm does not just content itself with selling the fruit of its own labor. The Youngs work with about a dozen other Long Island farms to share their bounty with customers."We have our own vans that we send out, go to other farms on Long Island. During the growing months it's every day, but even right now were going two to three times per week to continue to support them as best we can," said farm director Tim Dooley.During the pandemic, the farm saw a boost in business as people found themselves confined to their homes, eating in and focusing...
    Construction will soon begin on the second commercial-scale, offshore wind energy project to gain approval in the United States, the developers said. The U.S. Department of the Interior approved it in November, and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management issued its approval letter for the constructions and operations plan Tuesday, a major step in the federal process before construction can start. Orsted, a Danish energy company, is developing the South Fork Wind project with utility Eversource off the coasts of New York and Rhode Island. They now expect the work onshore to begin by early February and offshore next year for as many as 12 turbines. President Joe Biden has set a goal to install 30 gigawatts of offshore wind power by 2030, generating enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes. In November, work began on the first commercial-scale offshore wind farm in the United States, the Vineyard Wind 1 project off the coast of Massachusetts. Those developments, along with last week’s announcement that the Biden administration will hold its first offshore wind auction next...
    (CNN)Federal officials are green-lighting plans for a wind farm off the Rhode Island coast as the Biden administration aims to grow renewable energy capacity.The Wednesday approval out of the Interior and Commerce Departments brings the South Fork wind farm closer to providing enough power for 70,000 homes to Long Island, New York, along an underwater cable. Officials said the developers are still on the hook for other documents including a design report. The project will be smaller than originally conceived -- 12 rather than 15 turbines -- and has been adjusted to avoid "high value fishing areas" and shipping lanes. The Arctic Ocean began warming decades earlier than previously thought, new research showsNot approving the offshore wind farm, officials reasoned, would lead energy developers to construct new power generation in the area that "might be fueled by natural gas, oil, or coal, which would emit more air pollutants and produce greater impacts on air quality in the region in comparison."Officials said the decision includes measures to "avoid, minimize, and mitigate potential impacts," and those requirements were developed in consultation with...
    The Biden administration approved an offshore wind farm off the coast of Rhode Island on Wednesday as part of a plan to deploy 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy by 2030. The U.S. Department of the Interior announced it approved the construction and operations of the South Fork Wind project, the department’s second approval of a commercial-scale, offshore wind energy project in the United States. Last week, the department marked the groundbreaking off the coast of Massachusetts for the first commercial-scale offshore wind project. Seven major offshore wind farms would be developed on the east and west coasts of the U.S. and in the Gulf of Mexico under a plan announced last month by the Biden administration to build infrastructure, create jobs and address global warming. Deploying 30 gigawatts of offshore wind energy would generate enough electricity to power more than 10 million homes. The South Fork Wind project will be located about 19 miles (30 kilometers) southeast of Block Island, Rhode Island, and 35 miles (56 kilometers) east of Montauk Point, New York. It’s expected to provide roughly 130...

    SOUTH HAVEN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Farming has become a cultural passion for an 88-year-old Long Island man. As CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Monday, he’s an example of living Long Island farming history. READ MORE: NYPD: Innocent Bystander Hurt In Shooting Near Penn Station, Suspect Opened Fire After Dispute “It’s amazing what he’s accomplished,” said Nancy Bush, whose husband is a harvester of history. Farming is in Ron Bush’s genes. A hundred years ago, his grandfather in Holtsville, followed by an uncle in East Hampton, owned dairy farms with hundreds of cows producing thousands of quarts of milk a day. Ron started doing farm chores. “I started about three years old,” he said. Since his college days at Cornell, Ron has been collecting and assembling historic farm equipment. The family’s South Haven farm is now a collector’s paradise of 6,000 items, complete with an outhouse from 1860. Their daughter Meghan is a 4th generation farmer. She runs the greenhouse. There are two barns from 1920 and a milk house. READ MORE: Preparations Being Made For Kathy Hochuls Inauguration In Albany “They...
    MASTIC, N.Y. (AP) — An escaped bull has eluded capture for several days on Long Island despite searchers employing a helicopter and night-vision equipment along with attempts to lure the roaming animal with grain and a cow. Police in Suffolk County say they began responding to calls about the 1,500-pound (680-kilogram) bull running loose Tuesday morning after it broke through the fence of a local farm. Residents have spotted the dark-coated bull, since nicknamed Barney, walking across fields, roads and suburban front yards. And it briefly shut down of a portion of Sunrise Highway. Teams have searched the area about 50 miles (80 kilometers) east of New York City on foot and on horseback. They’ve used drones. A “bull trap” baited with the same feed Barney eats on the farm did not work, nor did other would-be traps. “We’ve tried luring him with a cow, with horses,” Frankie Floridia of Strong Island Animal Rescue told Newsday. “I’m out here with a (tranquilizer gun), looking for him, and I’m thinking, ‘I’m hunting cows in an Indiana Jones movie.’ It’s...

    LONG BEACH, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Offshore wind power is coming to New York for the first time, and it would be the largest wind farm in the nation to date.

    MATTITUCK, New York -- Farming is second nature for Ed Harbes - and for many Long Island families, it's second nature to head to his family farm when the weather warms up. The Harbes family has been farming on Long Island for generations, and the Mattituck business is still thriving.Their farming roots trace back to Europe, with the family continuing the tradition in the Hempstead area in the 1920s before moving out to Mattituck in 1968.Even though his father did not push him into the family business, Harbes wanted to give farming a try anyway after marrying the love of his life, Monica.The farm's appeal lies in the escape it offers from the fast pace of life, explained Monica Harbes, and farms like the one she runs are increasingly rare."Let's face it, there are not too many farms in our country anymore," she said.Related: Tiptoe through a rainbow of half a million tulips at this Long Island farmTheir 200-acre farm features something to do for kids of all ages, and that's part of what attracted visitor Trudi Ishmael."We needed a...

    PORTSMOUTH, R.I. (AP) — The Eastern Rhode Island Conservation District has received a grant from National Grid Rhode Island to boost children's understanding and appreciation of farming and the outdoors. The $5,000 grant will help create an outdoor learning pavilion where children will discover farming techniques and history unique to Aquidneck Island, The Newport Daily News reported this week. The pavilion will be located at the Portsmouth AgInnovation Farm, a five-acre Portsmouth Middle School student volunteer-run farm that teaches children about agriculture with hands-on problem-solving experiences. National Grid employee volunteers also will help with the installation in the spring. “This is a project that will positively affect the entire Portsmouth community,” conservation district manager Sara Churgin said. “Students will be introduced to farming, an extremely important business, especially now in light of COVID-19. Food security is being threatened through this crisis, and a portion of what will be grown on the farm will be donated to Lucy’s Hearth in Middletown." Copyright 2021 The Associated Press.

    PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Members of the state Fishermen’s Advisory Board say they’ve hit an impasse in negotiations with Orsted and Eversource over compensation for the impact of the proposed South Fork Wind Farm. The 130-megawatt project would be built in Rhode Island Sound and supply power to Long Island, the Providence Journal reported. Lanny Dellinger, chairman of the board, declined to go into detail on the offer from Ørsted and Eversource. The board advises the Coastal Resources Management Council on offshore wind development. “We’re not asking for anything that isn’t deserving of the industry,” said Dellinger, a lobsterman who fishes out of Newport. Orsted conceded that the two sides are not close to finding common ground. One reason developers and board members are so far apart is that both sides are using different data to assess the fishing impact. Orsted is relying on information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and analysis by the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. Meanwhile, the fisherman are using data from an economist that they say is more accurate and shows a higher level...
    SOUTHOLD, New York -- When it comes to farming Christmas trees on Long Island, Ed Dart likes to keep it fresh and fun with his creative ideas on his farm. Dart's farm has been in his family for over 100 years, but in 1967, while preparing for his first year at the University of Rhode Island, he pitched his parents the idea of raising Christmas trees on the property - and a family business was born.Fifty one years later, Dart, who is now the owner, placed a colorful twist on that business by coloring real trees to create "The Magic Color Forest.""It's more than just a place to get a Christmas tree," Dart said. "It's a place to spend an afternoon, to have some fun, and be part of the holiday season."Visitors exploring the colorful forest can find trees painted in the colors pink, purple (actually called sugarplum), blue, aqua and white. Dart likes to say magic elves transform the trees at night, but it's really Dart, spraying the trees with commercial colorant. Related: Long Island's Posey School of Dance...
    NEW YORK (AP) — A minor league baseball team once affiliated with the New York Yankees has shut down and filed a lawsuit accusing the Yankees violating an agreement that it would never abandon the farm club. The owners of the Staten Island Yankees announced in a statement Thursday that with “great regret, we must cease operations.” They also said they were suing the New York Yankees and Major League Baseball “to hold those entities accountable for false promises” that they would always keep the team as a farm club. The local franchise could have tried playing in an independent league, but that “would force Staten Island to field a subpar team,” the statement said. Messages were left Friday seeking comment from the Yankees and league officials. The Yankees organization announced last month that it was dropping its single-A team on Staten Island as part of a league-wide restructuring of the minor league system. The farm club, nicknamed the “Baby Bombers,” had played in a 7,171-seat waterfront stadium with views of the lower Manhattan skyline since 2001. Borough officials are...
