Pipes Cove

Pipes Cove oysters are Greenport neighbors to Widow’s Hole, the two coves separated by Fanny Point, itself a pretty good name for an oyster. While Widow’s Holes are grown in the backyard of a stately mansion, Pipe’s Coves live in the back forty of the Silver Sands Motel, growing just beyond the roped-off swimming area. Both Pipes Cove and Widow’s Hole have a salted iron flavor note that is the essence of Greenport oysters.
