Episode Summary

Welcome to food. curated. Meet Mike & Mike. Mike Martinsen and Mike Doall, the founders of Montauk Shellfish Company, a commercial fisherman and marine biologist who’ve teamed up to give back to their community and pay respect to the Earth by launching Montauk’s very first oyster farm: Montauk Pearls. Montauk Pearls are new to the oyster scene, and the success of their operation has given the East End a new found interest in aquaculture. The two Mikes started their surface grow out system in 2009, leasing out a very unique and hard-to-come-by plot of private land in Lake Montauk. A plot of land that just-so-happened to be underwater. As the story goes, Mike M happened to be living on the property and asked his landlord if he could use it for farming. Luckily, his landlord said yes.
