Pipes Cove Oyster Farm

Pipes Cove Oyster Farm is located between the villages of Southold and Greenport on the Peconic Bay.  It is neighbor to Moore's Drain.  The wildlife in the area and it's tidal attributes make it a very special place on the North Fork.   The oysters there have been sustaining man from the early days of the native Indians.  At one time they were Greenport's main export and there are old photos showing mountains of shells near the processing plants.  Today they are served in upscale New York City restaurants and can be obtained in some local seafood stores.
