Founders Oyster Farm
After more than 3 decades as a TV producer for ABC News and the documentary world, there came an opportunity for a course change. A love of all things water brought Steven Schnee to the North Fork. He learned the art of growing oysters by volunteering at The Cornell Marine Center and their Southold Project in Aquaculture Training (SPAT). With an underwater grant that dates back centuries, The Founders Oyster Farm got its start on a piece of seabed in the pristine waters of Peconic Bay.
