EH Oyster Garden

It must be interesting to be a fish living right next to a popular restaurant. Millions of oysters, clams, and other shellfish face this dilemma every day since they call the East Hampton Oyster Garden their home. The garden’s shellfish growing areas are located right on the dock and they each house hundreds of thousands of developing clams, oysters, and other species. On the opposite side is the garden’s esteemed restaurant, where the food’s freshness is second to none. The East Hampton Oyster Garden plans to continue its endeavors, and it has also assisted in the development of other shellfish farms across the south shore.
