Southold Bay Oysters
Ever since Ben Gonzalez and his husband, Dave Daly, purchased a home on the North Fork of Long Island, they have dreamed about living there full time. After many years of Friday evening commutes on the Long Island Railroad and Sunday night schlepps into the city on the Jitney, they moved out of the city in 2015 to start Southold Bay Oysters and settle down full time in Southold, NY. 2017 was the first commercial harvest for Southold Bay Oysters. Ben and Dave currently attend events around the North Fork to showcase their new local oysters, known as Southold Shindigs.
