We love Peconic Pearl oysters. Not just because they are a truly awesome Peconic Bay oyster, but because the Pearls are also an oyster on a mission.
A portion of the profits generated from Peconic Pearl sales are contributed to environmental projects that benefit the Peconic Estuary. It's a win-win contribution, as anything that helps make the Estuary a better place, usually contributes to producing a better oyster. The minerality of the Bay resonates distinctly in the sweet & briny flavor of the Pearls, making them a requested favorite on the North Fork and beyond.
The Noank Aquaculture Cooperative, who grow Peconic Pearls, also contains a modern marine hatchery, which produces oyster seed (spat) for other growers in the area.
